Jun 13: Yeros Pita Pockets; Pasta Puttanesca


Our favorite wrap has disappeared from the supermarket shelf, so we’re looking for alternatives, starting with pita pockets.

  • The fully cooked sliced gyro/yeros meat is $3.99 per 10oz pack. There are really four serves, so each serve is very slightly cheaper than the chicken, at $1.00 per serve.
  • The pita are $1.99 for a pack of six, or 35c each
  • Hummus is $3.99 per container and we used about 1/6 or 33c┬áper serve
  • We served 1/4 of the tabouli salad or 67c per serve.

Lunch today cost $2.35.


Puttanesca – a.k.a. slut spaghetti – is a quick and easy meal, mostly from cans, but we used only fresh kumato instead of canned.

  • Anchovies are $1.59 a can, or 40c per serve
  • Garlic and seasonings add about 10c per serve
  • The pasta was $1.29 or 33c per serve
  • The kumatos (black tomato) are $3.49 for six, or 58c per serve
  • A jar of pitted olives is $2.99 but only half is used in the recipe or 38c per serve

Dinner tonight cost $1.79 a serve.
