Jun 10: Soup/Salad; Southwest Beans and Sausage with Brown Rice


The Foodies were at different places during lunch. Foodie Greg had crisp bread, while Philip caught up with a little chicken salad late in the day.

Average cost about $1.20 per serve.


Tonight’s meal was put together without much pre-planning so we decided on Southwest Beans and Sausage with brown rice.

The recipe makes four serves and it basically just involves cutting up stuff, opening a couple of cans, and cooking some rice, which is always faster in the pressure cooker!

  • The Andouille Sausage is the most expensive component at $5.99 or $1.50 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 $3.00 a serve. It’s a very tasty, warming stew with a little heat from the andouille.
