Dec 11: Popeye’s Fried Chicken; Prime Rib with Spinach and Blue Smokey Bacon Salad


A last minute change of plans had Foodie Philip heading home before lunch, so a stop at Popeye’s on the way seemed like a good idea.

  • For some (good) reason we got 11 pieces of dark meat for the “11 tenders” deal or $1.56 per piece, or$3.12 per serve
  • The red beans and rice are $2.17 per serve with tax.

Lunch today was $5.29 per serve.


We decided to reheat the remaining two serves of prime rib in a little beef stock, and serve with a Taylor Farms Spinach and Blue Smokey Bacon Salad.

  • The boneless prime rib was $42.57 and we’ll get five very, very generous serves out of that (about 10 oz each) for $8.51 per serve
  • The salad kit was 99c or 50c per serve.

Reheating the prime rib to 140ºF send it to medium well, which was not as tender as the medium rare of the night before, so it was a little less tender but still good. The salad kit was a little too much. Half the dressing would probably have been better balanced. All up, a good meal for $9.01 per serve.
