Jan 8: Caesar Chicken Schnitzel Wrap; Lamb Loin Chops with Eggpant, Feta and Pomegranate Salad

Lunch

For lunch today we returned to Mr Schnitzel in Warner’s Bay for an enormous Chicken Schnitzel Wrap with lettuce, bacon, parmesan and a Caesar dressing. It’s no surprise that the shop is full of those expending a lot of energy in their daily work.

A very, very filling meal with over 300g (12oz) of Schnitzel alone, for Au$13.00 (US$9.10) per serve.

Dinner

Tonight Foodie Greg cooked for his parents, we believe for the first time! He decided on lamb loin chops with an eggplant, feta and pomegranate salad. The eggplant was first tossed in olive oil and balsamic vinegar before being roasted and allowed to cool to room temperature before being added to the salad.

  • The lamb loin chops were Au$4.85 per serve
  • Danish feta was Au$3.48 or 87c per serve
  • Eggplant was Au$5.01 or $1.25 per serve
  • The pomegranate was Au$2.70 or 67c per serve
  • Mint was $3.00 but we only used about ¼ or 19c per serve.

The lamb chops were complete with ‘tail’ which brings extra flavor from the fat, while the ssalad had a great roasted flavor from the eggplant that was nicely balanced with the creamy saltiness of the feta and tart freshness of the eggpant. A very successful meal for Au$7.78 (US$5.45) per serve.
