Feb 21: Popeye’s Fried Chicken; Dry Aged Rib Eye with Home Made Caesar Salad


Foodie Philip was passing Popeye’s on the way home, so why not pop in and pick up some dark and spicy fried chicken.

  • A 10 piece special was $13.98 and we had two piece each, or $2.80 per serve
  • The red beans and rice is $3.99 or $2.00 per serve.

We enjoy Popeyes from time to time, for $4.80 per serve.


Thursday night is traditionally our steak night, so tonight we defrosted a 10 oz rib eye from Keller Crafted and prepared it in our (new) high tech, non-stick wok. On the induction cooktop we can directly set the temperature, and we get a really good, quick sear on the outside.

We served with a home made Caesar Salad with home made dressing.

  • At 10 oz the rib eye is $8.10 per serve
  • The cos lettuce was the remainder of our gift
  • An egg is 51c or 26c per serve
  • Add 15c for the other dressing ingredients
  • Baked cheese bites (substituting for croutons) are $2.69 for a pack and we shared half, or 67c per serve.

A fairly simple meal, but when everything is of high quality, the meal becomes something special for $9.18 per serve.
