Dec 18: Chili, Cheese & Avocado, Lemmon Pepper Tuna & Avocado Toasted Sandwiches; Hosted BBQ Food Truck

Lunch

As we still had heaps of bacon and black bean chili, and an avocado that needed using, we repeated the chili, cheese and avocado sandwich. For the other shared sandwich, we paired the other half of the avocado with some lemon pepper salmon (pouch). Both sandwiches were toasted.

  • Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
  • The avocado  was 4 for $3.49 or 44c per serve
  • The salmon was $2.79 or $1.40 per serve
  • The chili is $2.86 per serve, and we shared about 1/6 or  24c per serve
  • 12 slices of yoghurt cheese are $4.79 and we shared two or 40c per serve.

Lunch today was two good sandwiches for $2.80 per serve.

Dinner

Where the foodies live is currently surrounded by a large scale real estate development – DeerLake Ranch. The developers – Foremost – have been great neighbors while the construction affects our community. As part of their community outreach they host dinner events for the community.

Tonight was the Christmas get together and the primary food came from Back Sugar Ribs.

It was easily the best BBQ the Foodies have had. While we’re not BBQ connoisseurs we definitely include it in our food roster. Each of the meats were amazing. Perfectly tender ribs that had taste and texture, but still fell off the bone; pulled pork that literally melted in the mouth with zero stringiness; exceptional hot links, and chicken breast that was moist and tender. All had great smokey flavor.

We also loved the sauces, which were not as sweet as many we’ve tried, and the better for it. Foodie Philip went back for seconds.

Food trucks are hard to locate, but when talking with the Brown Sugar Ribs folk, there’s an event in downtown Los Angels they frequent called Smorgasburg LA. They also raved about the food from other vendors there, so the Foodies will be checking it out real soon.

Dinner tonight was free to the Foodies thanks to Foremost’s generosity.
