Oct 4: Tomato & May, Corned Beef, Tabouli & Spicy Labné; Kedgeree with Brown Rice


Back to some favorite sandwiches. On the corned beef sandwich we added tabouli from Jon’s and it was definitely a superior tabouli than we get from other providers. It adds a wet and flavor component to the corned beef sandwich that elevates it.

The tomato and mayo (substitute) is always a good sandwich and with a heritage, flavorsome tomato it is a great sandwich.

  • Twos slice of bread are 32c per serve
  • The pastrami beef was $6.52 for 1 lb, and we used about 3 oz in this sandwich, or 61c per serve

The cooler weather has us returning to more warming dishes, like cod and smoked salmon kedgeree! Traditionally served as a breakfast, we prefer it as an evening meal, mostly because we don’t eat breakfast!
