Jan 15: Smoked Trout & Avocado; Stir Fried Beef with Oyster Sauce and Sugar Snap Peas


Although the weather made toasted sandwiches appealing, we didn’t want a simple repeat of the last two days. Since we had an avocado ready to eat, we paired it with canned smoked tuna for a pair of darned good sandwiches.

  • The smoked trout is $3.49 per can or $1.75 per serve
  • Sprouted Rye bread is 32c per serve
  • Two avocados were $1.98 but we shared one, or 50c per serve
  • Add 30c for butter.
  • We both enjoyed the sandwiches for $2.87 per serve.


    As we had “meat for fajita” in the freezer and a new wok to try, so we returned to a favorite:¬†Stir-Fried Beef With Snap Peas and Oyster Sauce¬†with brown rice. We have some leftovers for sandwiches.

    • The ‘fajita’ beef cost $13.5 for a full pound of beef, or $5.40 per very generous serve
    • Snow peas add $1.00 per serve
    • The various sauce and marinade ingredients add $1.00 per serve
    • Brown rice is 33c per serve.

    The stir fry is a good weeknight meal, for $7.73, mostly because we get all our beef aged from Keller Crafted, which is definitely more expensive than conventionally sourced beef.
