May 6: Roast Chicken & Tomato Baguette; Rissoles with Beets, Tomatoes and Caramelized Onion Cheddar


An essential shopping trip took us to Jon’s market where we always pick up a Baguette and Roast Chicken. Fortunately both were available this trip. Along with a Kumato and some Garlic Spread this is a great sandwich.

  • The Baguette is $2.99 and we shared half for lunch, or 75c per serve
  • The Chicken is $6.99 and we shared ¼ or 88c per serve
  • Five Kumato were $3.49 and we had one each, or 70c per serve
  • Add 50c for Garlic Spread.

As always, simple, but great ingredients make a great sandwich for $2.83 per serve.


Since we have good grilling weather, and the Rissoles on the grill last time were the “best ever” we went for it again. We got three serves of rissoles.

The salad is “inspired” by the salads the Foodies grew up with: iceberg lettuce, quartered tomato, Kraft (processed) Cheddar and slices of pickled beetroot. We used spinach as the green and Caramelized Onion Cheddar, but we kept to the spirit of the salad with Pickled Beets.

  • Dry aged 85/15 ground beef $8.57 or $2.86 per serve
  • 8 oz Panko breadcrumbs are $2.99 and we used half, or 50c per serve
  • A pastured egg is 51c or 17c per serve
  • The onion is 4c per serve
  • Spinach was $1.49 or 38c per serve
  • The cherry tomatoes were $2.99 and we used half or 75c per serve
  • Pickled beets in vinaigrette are $1.69, of which we used about ⅓ or 28c per serve
  • We used about ⅓ of the $5.75 Caramelized Onion Cheddar, or 96c per serve
  • Add 10c for Carolina BBQ sauce.

We agreed that tonight’s Rissoles where the “best ever,” largely attributed to cooking on a griddle over a grill outdoors. A really enjoyable meal for $6.04 per serve.
