Aug 18: BBQ Chicken Breast, Tomato & Garlic Spread on Fresh Baguette; Sous vide Poached Shrimp, with Avocado and Mango Salad


A now infrequent trip to Jon’s always scores a good BBQ Chicken and a fresh Baguette. If possible we buy a Heritage Tomato but today we settled for a Dashi, which turned out to be quite flavorsome.

  • The Baguette is $2.99 and we shared half for lunch, or 75c per serve
  • The Chicken is $7.99 and we shared ¼ or $1.00 per serve
  • Five Dashi Tomatoes were $1.55 and we used one, or 16c per serve
  • Add 50c for Garlic Spread.

As always simple, but great ingredients, make great food for $2.41 per serve.


We decided we had to have the Sous vide Poached Shrimp, with Avocado and Mango Salad again. We had a full Avocado and Mango each!

  • 1 lb of shrimp is $10.99,  or $2.75 per serve.
  • A Mango was 45c per serve
  • An Avocado was 49c per serve
  • Add 30c for Spinach
  • Add 20c for dressing ingredients.

It was the day for “simple but great” as this dish is always a winner, for $4.19 per serve.
