Mar 18: Corned Beef, Swiss & Sauerkraut Toasted Sandwich; Pulled Pork, Cheesy Grits and Buttered Spinach


We finished the corned beef on two identical toasted sandwiches. As well as the corned beef, we added Swiss cheese, Bubbies sauerkraut and “Russian dressing.”

  • Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
  • The corned beef serve is $3.54 and we used about ¾ of a serve in each wrap, or $2.65 per serve
  • Gouda slices are 12 for $3.99 or 17c 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
  • Add 20c for mayo and shrimp sauce.

We both thought these were great sandwiches for $3.56 per serve.


With the last of the corned beef consumed, it was time to think about next week’s sandwiches, and dinner tonight, so Greg decided on pulled pork.

We served with “cheesy grits” or in our case, some smokey gouda melted into a 10 grain cereal: same principle, upgraded ingredients. For some green, spinach was wilted in butter.

  • The pork was $18.86 but we’ll get six meals from that, or $3.15 per serve
  • The Dutch smoked cheese was $2.69 and we used half, or 67c per serve
  • The 10 grain ‘hot cereal’ is $5.99 for a 25oz pack, but we used about 1/4 or 75c per serve.
  • The pack of spinach was $2.50 and we used about ⅔ tonight, or 83c per serve
  • Broth adds $1.00 or 17c per serve
  • Add $1.00 per serve for the other ingredients.

An excellent example of the pulled pork, really enhanced by the caramelization of the onion – we used twice the onion the recipe calls for and a decent bit more garlic too – and very juicy. An excellent meal for $5.43 per serve.
