May 1: Meat Pies; Ginger Miso Broth with Chicken Wontons


Sudden cool weather led us to Trader Joe’s meat pies. Foodie Philip had a Steak and Stout pie, while Foodie Greg had the Chicken Balti! They hit the spot in the cold for $3.25 per serve.


As well as being tasty, tonight’s meal had to pair with sparkling white wine (a.k.a. champagne) because we were celebrating the release of a new app in our day job. We decided on Ginger Miso Broth and Vegetable Gyoza, but in typical Trader Joe’s fashion the Gyoza are not available, so we chose a Chicken and Cilantro Wonton instead.

  • The Wontons were $2.99 or $1.50 per serve
  • The Ginger Miso Broth is $1.99 or $1.00 per serve.

Despite both of us being “cilantro sensitive” it was in good balance in the wontons and, overall, it was a good, quick meal for $2.50 per serve.
