Oct 22: Salami, Spicy Labné & Sun Dried Tomato and Peanut Butter & Sweet Chili Sauce Sandwiches; Pulled Pork with Apple, Endive and Bacon Slaw


Another experiment in mixed sandwiches. One with Salami, spicy labné and sun dried tomatoes, with was better than expected, while the peanut butter and sweet chili sauce had hints of an Asian peanut sauce.

  • The salami was $4.49 and we used less than 1/4, or 56 per serve
  • Add 20c for the spicy labné
  • Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
  • The sun dried tomatoes were $5.99 and we used about 1/6 or 50c per serve
  • The peanut butter was $3.99 and we used about 1/8,  or 25c a serve
  • Add 10c for sweet chili sauce.

Lunch today was an interesting mix of sandwiches for  $1.93 per serve.


With a small pork butt in the freezer and a guest coming to dinner it was time for pulled pork.

After our success with the apple and bacon slaw of last week, we decided to recreate it with endive instead of cabbage, which worked a whole lot better, both in flavor and ease of eating.

We’ll get five serves from the pork and salad.

  • The pork picnic roast (butt) was $16.14 or $3.23 per serve
  • Onion and garlic add 25c per serve
  • Chicken stock adds $2.00 or 40c per serve
  • The endive was $9.95 or $1.99 per serve
  • The Fuji apple was 98c or 20c per serve
  • Bacon is $6.99 for the pack and we used 1/4, or 35c per serve.

Tonight’s pulled pork was not quite as flavorsome as it has been, probably because it lost liquid that was replaced with mostly water, but still good for $3.88 per serve. The endive works a lot better in this salad bringing a bitter note. All up this is an excellent salad for $2.54 per serve. Dinner tonight was $6.42 per serve.
