Mar 13: Supermarket Sushi; Corned Beef, Cabbage and Potatoes


Shopping for dinner required a trip to Whole Foods, so some sushi was on the agenda for lunch.

Spicy tuna rolls and Firecracker rolls averaged $9.19 per serve.


Foodie Greg’s birthday tradition has been top round corned beef – what we call silverside in Australia – with a traditional boiled dinner: potatoes and cabbage.

A simple New England Boiled Dinner, it is very tasty. We served with an onion horseradish white sauce.

  • The corned beef was $28.31 and we’ll get eight serves, or $3.54 per serve
  • Russet potatoes were 75c or 38c per serve
  • An organic green cabbage was $2.49 but only used half for this meal, or 63c per serve
  • Heavy cream was $1.79 and we used half or 45c per serve
  • Add 40c for horseradish, ¬†flour and butter.

A very satisfying, comforting meal for $5.40 per serve.
