Aug 20: Heirloom Tomato Sandwiches; Indian Sauces on Rice


With half an heirloom tomato remaining, obviously we had toasted tomato sandwiches. Instead of mayo we used the Trader Joe’s Garlic spread, which added a layer of flavor to the sandwich.

  • The heirloom tomato was $1.33 and we used about ⅓ or 22c per serve
  • Sprouted Rye bread is 32c per serve
  • Add 45c for butter and garlic spread.

A very satisfying sandwich for $1.00 per serve.


For a meatless Monday evening meal, we picked Jaipur Vegetables and Punjab Eggplant sauces (in pouches), which we heated and served over brown rice.

  • The Trader Joe’s Jaipur Vegetables were $1.99 or $1.00 per serve
  • The Punjab Eggplant (from Ralphs) was $3.99 or $2.00 per serve
  • Brown rice adds 33c per serve.

The Jaipur vegetables – half the price of the Punjab Eggplant – was definitely the better sauce. Overall, a decent meal for $3.33 per serve.
