Sep 3: Long Cooked Broccoli on Fry Bread; Grilled Eggplant with Satay Sauce and Vietnamese Salad

Lunch

Although we use the Long Cooked Broccoli as a side, it was originally intended as a sandwich filling, so today we heated what remained and topped a piece of fry bread (just bread in the panini press).

  • One slide of Rye is 16c
  • The long cooked broccoli is $1.36 per serve, or 68c per serve
  • Add 25c for butter.

Surprisingly, this was a great way to eat the broccoli for $1.09 per serve.

Dinner

With one vegetarian among our dinner guests we returned to the grilled eggplant with satay sauce that had been so successful last time we had it.

  • Two eggplants were $3.28 or 82c per serve (although not all were served)
  • The peanut butter was $1.99 and we used about 1/4,  or 25c a serve
  • Other seasonings in the satay sauce add 35c per serve
  • Add 50c for marinade ingredients
  • Bean sprouts were $1.49 but we used 2/3 or 25c per serve
  • Carrot adds 10c per serve
  • Mint came from our garden.

Excellent again, as always. Good food and great company made for a great evening. The meal cost $2.27 per serve.
