May 3: Smoked Trout, Labné & Garlic Dip; Southwest Beans and Sausage with Rice


For variety in our toasted sandwiches, today we combined the Trader Joe’s smoked trout with Labné and Garlic spread on alternate sides.

  • The smoked trout is $3.49 per can and we shared one, or $1.75 per serve
  • Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
  • Add 35c for labné and garlic spread/dip.

Lunch today was surprisingly good for $2.42 per serve.


Feeding a large table tonight we decided on Southwest Beans and Sausage with brown rice.

  • The Chicken Andouille Sausage is the most expensive component at $7.98 for two packs or $1.14 per serve
  • Bell pepper: $1.13 or 16c per serve
  • Onion: 10c per serve
  • Fire roasted diced tomato (canned): $1.69 a can or 48c per serve
  • The pinto beans are 99c a can or 28c a serve
  • For the herbs, 15c a serve
  • And the rice: 33c a serve

Dinner tonight cost $2.64 a serve. It’s a very tasty, warming stew with a little heat from the andouille.
