Foodie Greg made a pilgrimages to Jon’s supermarket and picked up a fresh (still warm) baguette, fresh roast chicken and a couple of heirloom tomatoes, so that’s exactly what we had for lunch!
- The chicken was only $5.99 and we shared one breast, or 75c per serve
- The baguette was $2.79 and we had 1/4 each, or 70c per serve
- Two heirloom tomatoes were $3.59 and we used 1/2 of one, or 90c per serve
- Add 25c per serve for mayo.
When all the ingredients are first rate, the result of even a simple meal is very good. This one was great for $2.60 per serve.
It’s Thursday night – our “steak” night – and we have a rib eye defrosted, but we also still have half a baguette. We decided on a steak roll with sliced rib eye, roquamole, and grilled onions. Onions were grilled on our griddle over the induction cooktop.
- The dry aged rib eye was $18.35 or $9.18 per serve
- Add 40c for roquamole
- The baguette was 70c per serve
- Add 30c for grilled onion.
The steak was perfectly cooked and the grilled onion and roqualmole added texture, salt and a whole heap of flavor for $10.68 per serve.
