Apr 3: Panini Rolls with Egg Salad and Sprouts; Boeuf Bourguignon with Farro


For variety we finished some par baked panini rolls and stuffed them with Trader Joe’s Egg Salad and some sprouts.

  • The panini roll is 63c per serve
  • The egg salad is $3.69 for 10 oz and we used 2 oz per serve, or 92c per serve
  • The sprouts cost $1.96 and we shared about 1/8 or 13c per serve.

We enjoyed this roll a lot for $1.68 per serve.


Boeuf Bourguignon (Beef Stew with Red Wine, Mushrooms and Bacon) is a classic French recipe that we served with Farro. We will get four serves from this meal.

  • The beef was around $3.12 per serve
  • Carrots were $1.99 or 50c per serve
  • A yellow onion was 50c or 13c per serve
  • The wine is $3.00 for 3 cups or 75c per serve
  • Add 50c per serve for seasoning, garlic and oils
  • The farro was $1.79 for the pack, but we shared ⅓ or 10c per serve.
We really enjoyed this. The gelatin substitutes for slow cooked connective tissue for an unctuous mouth feel, and the slow cook released a lot of flavor. The farro balanced the meat dish perfectly for $5.10 per serve.
