Apr 1: Bahn Mi; Cottage Pie


As much as we don’t want to be out of the house, we also want to support local restaurants so they stay in business. Today we picked up a Bahn Mi from Pho Saigon 1, for $10.00 with tax and tip.


A Cottage Pie – the beef version of a Shepherd’s Pie – is a warm, filling dish, but it sure makes a lot of dirty dishes! We get four serves from the ‘pie.’

  • The ground beef is $10.16 or $2.54 per serve
  • The potatoes were $2.20 or 55c per serve
  • Add 35c for carrot, onion and celery
  • Beef stock is $1.99 but we used ΒΌ or 13c per serve
  • Add 20c per serve for butter
  • Add 30c per serve for flour and seasonings.

It was definitely warming and filling for $4.07 per serve. Image coming at the second serving, because they present better!
