May 21: Roast Chicken Bagel Sandwich; NY Strip Steak with Vietnamese Salad


For some variety on our chicken wrap, we swapped to an onion bagel sandwich with tomato.

  • The onion bagel is 50c per serve
  • The roast chicken is $9.99 for the bird, but we used 1/2 one breast, or 63c per serve
  • We used one kumato, or 29c per serve
  • Add 10c for vegan mayo.

Lunch today cost $1.52 per serve and a nice variation.


This month’s Prather Ranch meat delivery included three 6oz NY Strip steaks, and since we had a guest for dinner, we kept all three whole and cooked them on the griddle.

We served with Nigella Lawson’s Vietnamese Chicken Salad without the chicken!

  • The steak was an average of $9.53 per serve
  • The shredded green cabbage was $1.29 for the pack, or 33c per serve
  • The ingredients for the sauce add another 35c per serve
  • Organic mint came from our garden
  • The bunch of carrots was 89c but we used half in this dish, or 15c per serve
  • The limes for the dressing were 19c each (bargain) and we used four, but only about half the juice was used, leaving the rest for a later Gin and Tonic – 13c per serve.

Dinner tonight cost $10.49 per serve and was very good.
