Dec 29: The Country Deli; BBQ Chicken Leg with Brown Rice Pilaf with Mushrooms and Thyme

Lunch

A last minute discovery of a complete lack of bread led us to The Country Deli for lunch. Foodie Philip had the usual marinated skirt steak with home fries and over easy eggs, while Greg had a Pastrami on Rye with coleslaw.

Lunch cost $21.62 per server (average) with tax and tip.

Dinner

It was time to use up the remaining BBQ chicken from last week’s supermarket visit, and what better to serve it with than a tasty rice pilaf with mushrooms and thyme.

  • The chicken leg is $1.75 per serve
  • Brown rice adds 33c per serve
  • The organic leek was $1.35 or 68c per serve
  • Mushrooms on “manager’s special” were $1.39 or 70c per serve
  • Add 20c for the seasoning.

Tonight’s meal was perfectly serviceable. The rice pilaf had mushroom forward but the thyme was completely lost. A decent meal for $3.66 per serve.
