Dec 1: Smoked Trout, Avocado & Sprouts; Soutzoukakia with Dolmas, Hummus and a Feta Spinach Salad


In an Avocado, Smoked Trout & Sprout sandwich, the Trout provides flavor, the Sprouts crunch, and the Avocado becomes a dressing.

  • Dave’s Killer Bread is 74c per serve
  • We shared a $3.49 can of Smoked Trout, or $1.75 per serve
  • The Avocado was 51c or 26c per serve
  • Add 30c for Alfalfa Sprouts
  • Garlic Spread adds 50c per serve.

A quite decent sandwich for $3.55 per serve.


Having acquired Ground Lamb for a good price at Aldi, we decided on Soutzoukakia again.

  • Australian Ground lamb was $5.99 at Aldi or $2.00 per serve
  • An egg is 51c or 17c per serve
  • 8 oz Panko breadcrumbs are $2.99 and we used half, or 25c per serve
  • Cotija cheese, substituting for Parmesan is $3.99 for 8oz and we shared 2 oz or 50c per serve
  • 1/4 cup and a tablespoon of red wine – halved – is 34c per serve
  • Stuffed Eggplant Dolmas were $2.79 or 93c per serve
  • Fried Eggplant (canned) was $2.99 or $1.00 per serve
  • Parsley was $1.49 for the bunch, but we only used 1/4 or 13c per serve
  • Fresh mint came from our garden
  • The Garden Salad adds 80c per serve, because of the Feta.

We’ve enjoyed this every time we’ve had it, and tonight was no exception. A very good dish for $6.12 per serve.
