May 24: Supermarket Sushi; Salade Niçoise

Lunch

The Foodies decided to check out the new Whole Foods in Porter Ranch, and were received that the same Sushi provider made the move, so we picked up a Spicy Vegetarian Roll (in black rice) and a combo plate with miniature tuna and salmon rolls, with salmon and tuna sushi.

  • The combo plate was $17.99 or $9.00 per serve
  • The vegetarian roll was $7.99 or $4.00 per serve.

Lunch today was good for $13.00 per serve.

Dinner

For “Fishy Friday” this week Foodie Greg decided on a deconstructed Salade Niçoise, without the potato.

We picked up the fresh olives and tuna in a jar, because it hasn’t had the high pressure, high temperature treatment of the tuna that happens with canning. We dropped the potato because it doesn’t add a lot of flavor.

  • The tuna was $9.29 or $4.65 per serve
  • The olives were $4.95 or $2.48 per serve
  • Pastured eggs are 51c each or 77c per serve
  • Grape tomatoes cost $2.79 but we used ½ the packet, or 69c per serve
  • The green beans $2.99 for the pack and we shared half, or 75c per serve
  • Add 50c for dressing ingredients.

An excellent salad and the potatoes were not missed. The fresh olives had a lot more flavor and oil than canned or jared. We definitely preferred the texture of the tuna-in-a-jar over the canned equivalent. All up a good meal for $9.84 per serve.
