Oct 8: Smoked Trout & Avocado; Grilled Mushroom with Onion Blue Cheese Sauce and Sugar Snap Peas

Lunch

Since we had an avocado that was ready to go, it had to be used today! We paired it with canned smoked trout for a good lunch sandwich.

  • The smoked trout was $3.49 or $1.75 per serve
  • Sprouted Rye bread is 32c per serve
  • Avocados were $1.38 for two and we shared one, or 35c per serve
  • Add 25c for butter.

A good lunch for $2.67 per serve.

Dinner

Since mushrooms are almost meat, and today is meatless Monday, we grilled a pair of portobello mushrooms as if steak, and topped with the fabulous onion, blue cheese cream sauce, and paired with sugar snap peas.

  • Onions were five for $2.49 and we shared one or 25c per serve
  • The mushrooms were $2.99 or $1.50 per serve
  • Heavy cream was $1.79 and we used half or 45c per serve
  • Blue cheese crumbles are $3.49 and we used about ¼ or 44c
  • Butter adds 75c per serve
  • Sugar snap peas were $4.99 and we shared ⅓, or 83c per serve.

Grilled mushrooms have their own “meaty” flavor and when paired with the onion blue cheese “steak” sauce, there’s no sense of missing meat. A great sauce on good mushrooms with a refreshing side for $4.22 per serve.
