Apr 29: Popeye’s Fried Chicken; Beef and Pork Meatloaf with Chipotle Sweet Potato Mash and Bok Choy


An unexpected trip to Burbank was planned to co-incide with lunch, so we could pick up some Popeye’s Fried Chicken.

  • 8 pieces of dark and spicy chicken is $9.99 or $2.70 a serve with tax per serve
  • Half the Large Red Beans and Rice is $2.15 with tax, per serve.

Lunch today cost $4.85 per serve.


The meatloaf meal from last night was a double batch, so we repeated the meal tonight, but fried off the meatloaf which gave it a really nice maillard reaction on the surfaces. Served with the remaining chipotle mashed sweet potato and fresh steamed bok choy.

  • The ground pork was $8.23 or $2.06 per serve
  • The grass fed ground beef was $6.48 or $1.62 per serve
  • A can of chipotle is $1.50 and we used half, or 38c per serve
  • Two sweet potatoes (yams) were $2.11 or 53c per serve
  • The bok choy was $1.99 for the pack, and we  used half, or 50c per serve.

Tonight’s dinner was both tasty and nutritious for $5.09 per serve.
