Apr 16: Random; Baked Ham with Mushroom Brown Rice Pilaf and Asparagus


Our odd scheduling today had us eating at different time, and pretty much what we could grab. Foodie Greg had a crisp bread with Swiss and pickles, while Philip had the remainder of some Trader Joe’s Wine Country Chicken Salad.

  • The salad is $3.99 for 11.5 oz, and there was 4.5 oz left, or $1.56 per serve.


Before Easter we picked up one of Ralph’s ‘loss leader’ hams for 99c per pound and today we baked it. ┬áThe ham will cover at least 12 very generous serves.

Tonight we paired it with a mushroom brown rice pilaf, which was disappointing, and asparagus, which was not.

  • The ham was $7.81 or 65c per serve
  • The mushrooms were $2.49 or $1.25 per serve
  • Brown rice adds 33c per serve
  • The organic asparagus was $4.07 and we served half, or $1.02 per serve.

The ham remained moist and tasty while the asparagus worked well with it. The pilaf lacked flavor and was disappointing, but overall a good meal for $3.25 per serve.
