Dec 12: Tomato & Mayo, Salami, Spicy Labné & Cheese Sandwiches; Cauliflower Gruyère Soup


To keep our sandwich grill busy we toasted one each tomato and mayo, and salami, spicy labné and cheese, which we shared. Both sandwiches were good, although Foodie Greg felt the sun dried tomatoes didn’t work on the sandwich as well as hoped, due to being stored in oil.

  • Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
  • Five kumato were $3.49 and we used one or 35c per serve
  • 12 slices of yoghurt cheese are $4.79 and we shared one or 20c per serve
  • The salami was $3.49 and we used under a quarter or 30c per serve
  • The sun dried tomatoes were $5.99 and we used about 1/6 or 50c per serve
  • Add 40c for labné, mayo and butter.

Today’s sandwiches were tasty for $2.07 per serve.


Foodie Greg has been “threatening” Cauliflower Gruyère Soup for a few days, as we had it on standby when we thought we’d be without a range for an extended period. We got to enjoy it tonight.

The recipe makes at least four serves.

  • The gruyere was $8.99 or $2.25 per serve
  • Heavy cream was $1.79 or 45c per serve
  • The butter is $3.99 per block, and we used about 2/8, or 25c per serve
  • An organic cauliflower was $4.38 or $1.10 per serve
  • Chicken broth adds 25c per serve
  • Add 20c for seasonings.

The gruyére flavor came through in the soup, along with a more subtle cauliflower taste, but overall it was a little bland for $4.50 per serve.
