Dec 1: Ham, Cheese & Branson Pickle, Silverside & Hummus; Black Pepper Beef


The mix of sandwiches evolves depending on what we have left over in the refrigerator or what we feel like.

  • Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
  • The corned beef/silverside was $6.82 for 1 lb, and we used about 3 oz in this sandwich, or 64c per serve
  • Add 20c for the spicy labné
  • Branson pickles are $4.99 for the jar, and we shared 1/8 or 32c per serve
  • The ham cost $16.51 on special and will make at least 15 serves, or $1.10 per serve, although we used 1/3 of a serve shared, or 18c per serve
  • Hummus is 30c per serve.

Lunch today cost $1.96 per serve.


Using fillet mignon for a stir fry might seem extravagant, and frankly it is, but while fillet has great texture it has very little flavor so the stir fry isn’t such a bad idea and we enjoyed the black pepper beef last time. Since the fillet comes in our Prather Ranch meat box it’s not something we chose.

For a little variation, we added bean sprouts to our rice instead of the stir fry. They might as well have been added to the stir fry!

Mung bean sprouts added to rice before the main dish.
  • Just over half a pound of fillet was $16.19 or $8.10 per serve
  • The pack of bell peppers was $1.99 or $1.00 per serve
  • Onion and garlic add 25c per serve
  • Add 50c for the other ingredients
  • Add 30c for rice.

The fillet was a really good choice for the stir fry (cost notwithstanding) because it remains tender through a quick fry, and picks up the flavor from the sauce. A good meal for $10.15 per serve.
