May 2: Avocado & Sardine Sandwich; Brined and Grilled Thick Cut Bone In Pork Chop with Apple-Bacon Slaw


Since we still had a ripe avocado we made two identical avocado and sardine toasted sandwiches.

  • The Avocado was 79c each or 40c per serve
  • Rye bread is 32c per serve
  • Smokey sardines in oil is $1.69 per can or 85c per serve
  • Add 30c for butter.

A decent sandwich for $1.87 per serve.


Last month’s Keller Crafted meat box featured two thick cut, bone-in pork chops, so we brined them ahead of grilling.

We served the chops with an Apple-Bacon slaw, made with the remaining Chinese Cabbage.

  • The pork chops were $9.71 each
  • Four slices of bacon are $2.74 or 68c per serve
  • A Nappa Cabbage was $2.39 but we split it across many meals, or 30c per serve
  • The Gala apple was 35c or 18c per serve
  • Add 20c for apple cider vinegar and seasoning.

The pork chop was grilled perfectly and the Apple-Bacon slaw provided a good acid hit to balance the rendered pork fat in the chop. An excellent meal for $11.07 per serve.
