Nov 10: Bacon, Eggs & Baked Beans on Toast; Pork Tenderloin with Mushrooms & Red Wine with Lemon Parmesan Orzo


Back home and for lunch we had Fried Eggs, Jumbo Baked Beans and Bacon on Toast.

  • The Dave’s Killer Bread is 33c per serve
  • Eggs are 51c each or an average of 77c per serve
  • Trader Joes¬†Giant Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce¬†cost $1.99 or $1.00 per serve.

An enjoyable lunch for $2.10 per serve.


Since we had some cubed Pork Shoulder in our meat box, we did a slow cook with mushrooms and red wine and served with Lemon Parmesan Orzo, although we forgot the parmesan!

  • The pork was $8.99 or $4.50 per serve
  • The pasta was $1.75 or 87c per serve
  • Parsley adds 20c per serve
  • Lemon Zest and Juice adds 30c per serve
  • Red wine adds 50c per serve
  • Mushrooms were $2.49 or $1.25 per serve
  • Add 25c for other ingredients.

This was excellent. The mushrooms added to the flavor and provided a texture variation. The pork was meltingly tender, probably the best we’ve ever had. Although we forgot the Parmesan the Orzo was a great side. This was probably three serves but we finished it as two, for $7.87 per serve.
