Sep 30: Supermarket Sushi; Filet Mignon with Melting Sweet Potatoes and Arugula Cherry Tomato Salad


As we haven’t had it for a while, some sushi seemed like a good idea, and Whole Foods has our favorites. At $11.49 per serve it’s not the cheapest sushi in Los Angeles!


We received a pair of filet mignon in our Prather Ranch meat box, and decided to pair them with an arugula and cherry tomato salad with a balsamic dressing and sprinted with feta.

We expected the Melting Sweet Potatoes to be good, and in fairness there’s nothing wrong with the recipe, but the sweet potatoes from Whole Foods were just mealy and ultimately not at all edible.

The filet was more flavorsome than most, probably because it is dry aged.

  • The filet averages out to $14.50 for an 8oz serve
  • The cherry tomatoes were $2.99 and we used half or 75c per serve
  • Arugula adds another 20c per serve
  • The sprinkling of feta adds 15c per serve
  • Balsamic dressing adds 20c per serve
  • The purple sweet potato were $2.79 or $1.40 per serve and were the worst part of the meal, mostly thrown out.

Dinner tonight cost $17.20 per serve, almost certainly our most expensive at home meal, but most of the meal was pretty good, and the steak worth it. (There were two smaller pieces per serve, double what’s in the photo, but one photographed better).
