Jun 30: Tuna & Swiss, Turkey Breast, Tomato & Swiss; Red Wine Mushroom Meatloaf with Cauliflower Mash and Sugar Snap Peas


Back to toasted sandwiches. Today we paired a “sweet and spicy” tuna pouch with Swiss on one sandwich; and combined roast turkey breast, moon touched tomatoes and Swiss on the other.

  • The tuna was $2.79 or $1.40 per serve
  • Sprouted Rye bread is 32c per serve
  • Swiss slices are 12 for $3.99 or 33c per serve
  • The moon touched tomato adds 15c per serve
  • The turkey breast is $2.99 for 8 oz and one went on the sandwich, or 38c per serve
  • Add 45c for butter and garlic dip.

A couple of decent sandwiches for $3.03 per serve.


With our Keller Crafted meat supply dwindling ahead of the next delivery, we used up two packs of ground beef in a Red Wine and Mushroom Meatloaf, which we served with Cauliflower Mash, Mushroom Marsala gravy and sugar snap peas.

The recipe makes four generous serves.

  • The dry aged ground beef was $20.16 or $5.04 per serve
  • Sliced portobello mushrooms were $2.49 or 63c per serve
  • Onions and garlic add 20c per serve
  • Two large eggs are $1.00 or 25c per serve
  • The butter is $3.99 per block, and we used about 3/8 for four serves, or 38c per serve
  • Red wine adds $1.00 or 25c per serve
  • Add 20c for Worcestershire sauce and other spices per serve
  • The cauliflower was $3.00 or $1.50 per serve
  • The sugar snap peas were $3.99 and we used 1/4, or 50c per serve
  • The marsala gravy was $2.99 for the jar but we used ⅓ tonight, or 50c per serve.

Overall, tonight’s meatloaf and mash was just okay. We felt the meatloaf was lacking “something.” I would hope for better for $9.45 per serve.
