Apr 21: Tomato & Garlic Spread Toasted Sandwich; Ham and Semi-dried Tomato “Cobb”


We have discovered Trader Joe’s Garlic Spread/Dip and it goes very well with tomatoes in a toasted sandwich. Very well.

  • Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
  • Five kumato were $3.49 and we used one, or 35c per serve
  • The garlic spread is $2.99 for the container and we used about 1/10 or 15c per serve.

Two tasty sandwiches for 82c per serve.


Tonight we created another Cobb Salad variation using ham and moon kissed (semi-dried) tomatoes, along with avocado, egg and burrata on a bed of dress spinach.

  • The bake ham is 63c per serve and we had 1/2 serve each, or 32c per serve.
  • A pastured egg is 50c
  • We substituted semi-dried tomatoes – about ⅓ each of the $2.79 of tomatoes we dehydrated, or 93c per serve
  • Spinach is $1.99 and we used 1/8 or 13c per serve
  • The avocado was $2.99 for a bag of five or 60c per serve
  • The burrata was $4.99 for two, or $2.50 per serve.

Tonight’s Cobb Salad was a good variation for $4.98 per serve.
