Oct 30: Popeye’s Fried Chicken & Yellow Curry Chopped Salad; Vietnamese Caramelized Pork Bowls with Butter Rice and Sprouts

Lunch

Since we still had fried chicken we reheated it and paired it with s Yellow Curry Chopped Salad, which was pretty good.

  • An 11 piece pack is $14.99 and we had two pieces each, or $2.73 per serve
  • The salad kit was $3.99 but it makes four serves, or $1.00 per serve.

Lunch today was better than with beans and rice for $3.73 per serve.

Dinner

One of our favorite ways to use ground pork is Vietnamese Caramelized Pork Bowls, tonight with mung bean sprout and grated carrot and butter rice.

  • The ground pork was $8.35 and we’ll get four serves from that, or $2.09 per serve
  • Add 40c for ginger, onion, garlic and chili, etc
  • Bean sprouts were $1.49 but we used only 2/3 or 50c per serve
  • Add 10c for grated carrot
  • Add 33c for brown rice
  • Add 25c for butter.

The butter rice was a little bland, which paired perfectly with the intensely flavored (and slightly salty) caramelized pork mix. A little crisp freshness from the sprouts and carrot and it was a well balanced meal for $3.67 per serve.
