Jul 8: Blue Castello, Mushroom & Caramelized Onions, Guacamole, Bacon & Sun Dried Tomato; Roast Chicken Leg and Vietnamese Salad


In order to use the last two hamburger buns we toasted them on the panini press, after using the press to fry off the remaining bacon. Basically, we’re doing a simplified do-over of last night’s burger, with the bacon, tomato and guacamole filling out the meal.

  • Hamburger buns are $2.28 for eight, or 29c per serve
  • The mushrooms were $3.49 for two or 88c per serve when you share one
  • The rib bacon was $3.84 and we used about ΒΌ or 48c per serve
  • The Blue Castello was $4.80 but we used about 30c worth per serve
  • Add 25c for onion and watercress
  • The sun dried tomatoes were $5.99 and we shared about 1/6 or 25c per serve
  • Add 45c for guacamole.

The hamburger buns aren’t our favorite sandwich bread but these wrapped good sandwiches regardless, for $2.90 per serve.


A simple meal of the legs from our supermarket roast chicken, paired with a Vietnamese inspired salad.

  • The chicken was only $5.99 and we had a leg, or $1.50 per serve
  • Nappa cabbage was 81c or 41c per serve
  • Carrot adds 40c per serve
  • Salad seasonings add 20c
  • Mint came from Jon’s and adds 15c per serve.

A cool, satisfying meal for $2.66 per serve.
