Jan 26: Lentil & Lamb with Hummus; Turkey Pastrami with Sauerkraut & Cheddar; Chili Meatloaf with “Fixin’s”


Today’s toasted sandwiches repeated the Lentil & Lamb with Hummus and Turkey Pastrami, except today we added a little cocktail sauce to the Turkey Pastrami to make it a little more like a Reuben (or more correctly, since it’s made with Turkey Pastrami, a Rachel).

  • Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
  • 12 slices of yoghurt cheese are $4.79 and we shared one or 20c per serve
  • The turkey pastrami was $11.27 for 15 oz and we used three, or $1.13 per serve
  • The Bubbies (natural) Sauerkraut is expensive at $6.99 or 22c per serve, but it is a very superior sauerkraut without the bad odor of most sauerkraut
  • The lamb and lentil mix is $3.00 per serve and we used under 1/4 or 38c per serve
  • Add 20c for hummus
  • Add 20c for cocktail sauce.

Lunch today was good, with the cocktail sauce being a worthwhile addition. All in lunch cost $2.65 per serve.


Time to slice and fry the remaining chili meatloaf. We decided to treat is as if it were chili and serve with avocado, sour cream (labné), cheddar and spring onions. It worked really well and the meatloaf fried off with a really good crust.

  • The meatloaf was $5.28 per serve
  • The avocado  was 4 for $3.49 or 44c per serve
  • Add 20c for labné
  • Add 30c for cheddar
  • Add 10c for spring onion.

Dinner tonight was really tasty. The crust on the meatloaf added a lot of texture and flavor, with the sides adding balance to the dish. Good eating for $6.32 per serve.
