Today’s two shared sandwiches were a turkey, tabouli, and avocado, and an avocado and cheese. We had an avocado to use!
- Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
- The tabouli came from Jon’s and is $2.52, of which we used about 1/4 or 32c per serve
- The turkey breast was $2.99 and we used 1/3 or 50c per serve
- The avocado was 4 for $2.99, or 38c per serve
- 12 slices of yoghurt cheese are $4.79 and we shared two or 40c per serve.
Lunch today was an interesting mix of sandwiches for $1.92 per serve.
We had a good sized chuck roast from our Prather Ranch meat deliver, and decided to do a pot roast variation: beef and barley stew in a pot in the oven, not on a stove top.
The recipe makes four very generous, and filling serves, with the barley. We added half a pack of steamed lentils to up the fiber quotient.
- The beef was $21.22 or $5.30 per serve
- Mushrooms were $2.39 or 60c per serve
- The lentils are $2.99 for a 500g (about 1lb) and we used half or 38c per serve
- The pearl barley is $4.89 for a 28 oz bag, or 35c per serve
- Mushroom stock replaced the other stocks in the recipe for $3.99 or $1.00 per serve
- Wine adds 20c per serve
- Onion, celery and garlic add 35c per serve.
Tonight’s beef was extremely tender. Braising is an amazing conversion of a tough piece of meat into one that is tender and flavorsome. Tonight’s meal cost $8.18, although we could have probably served less and made more portions available!
