A simple lunch of toasted tomato, cheese and mayo sandwich. Sometimes a classic is a classic for good reason.

  • Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
  • Half a heirloom tomato works out at 48c per serve
  • Swiss slices are 12 for $3.99 or 17c per serve
  • Add 20c for mayo.

Lunch today was good because the ingredients were good, for $1.17 per serve.


Tonight we tried a new recipe from Nigella Lawson: Italian Sausage with Lentils. We substituted bratwurst instead of Italian Sausage.

  • The bratwurst are $3.49 for the pack, or $1.75 per serve
  • Four bok choy were $1.99 and we used half, or 50c per serve
  • Du Puy Lentils (black lentils)¬†are $2.99 for a 500g (about 1lb) and we used half or 75c per serve
  • Red wine for the sauce adds 25c per serve
  • Add 30c per serve for onion, garlic and seasoning.

The dish turned out well for $3.55 per serve.
