Aug 20: BBQ Chicken Breast & Kumato on Baguette; Gus’ BBQ


Foodie Greg found a par baked Baguette at Aldi so we cut it in half, and finished cooking the first half, repeating our Chicken & Baguette of a few days ago.

  • The Baguette was $1.49 or 38c per serve
  • The Chicken Breast is $1.00 per serve
  • Five Kumato were $3.49 and we used one, or 35c per serve
  • Add 40c for Garlic Spread.

The Baguette was a success and close to the cheapest “bread” we buy. A great lunch for $2.13 per serve.


The Foodies haven’t eaten an evening meal prepared outside the home since March, largely because it’s hard to find food that will still be good when it gets home. BBQ certainly fits that bill and fortunately a new BBQ place – Gus’ BBQ – opened recently nearby in Porter Ranch.

We picked up a Fried Chicken dinner that included half a Chicken, with small servings of Brisket and a Smoked Sausage. We chose Mac and Cheese and Baked Beans as our sides.

The Mac and Cheese was terrible – no ‘Mac’ and no real Cheese. Spiral Pasta coated in flavorless Parmesan is not Mac and Cheese!

The Fried Chicken was excellent and a deboned half Chicken served both of us. The Brisket and Smoked Sausage were also very good.

While Gus’ sells this as a meal for one, we shared it for $17.70 per serve.
