May 5: Tuna Melt on Onion Bagel; Cheesy Gnocchi Casserole with Ham and Peas


For something different we made spicy tuna melts on an onion bagel. A little toasted sesame oil gave it an Asian twist.

  • An onion bagel is 25c
  • The cheese is 63c a slice
  • The can of tuna $3.19 or $1.60 per serve
  • The vegan dressing (not mayo!) is $2.29 a jar but we used about 15c worth each serve
  • Add 30c for the spring onion and celery per serve.

Lunch today was a nice change, and cost $2.93 per serve.


A new recipe for us, and another chance to use some ham, Cheesy Gnocchi Casserole with Ham and Peas turned out pretty well. The sauce was a little more liquid than we’d have liked, but it turned out to be quite tasty.

  • Ham is $1.10 per serve
  • The gnocchi was $1.69 or 85c per serve
  • Chicken broth cost $1.99 for four cups but the recipe uses only 1/2 cup, or 13c per serve
  • Shredded cheese mix was $3.49 for the pack but we used half, or 85c per serve
  • Onion and seasonings add another 25c.

Dinner tonight was tasty and filling for $3.18 a serve. There were probably three serves in this preparation.
