Feb 13: Ploughman’s Lunch; Soutzoukakia with Feta, Olive and Radicchio Salad


Since we have had some of our neighbor’s Sourdough on hand, we lightly toasted two slices, topped with Branston Pickle and Cheddar, and served with Pickled Onion and Apple Slices.

  • The Sourdough was free
  • The Irish Cheddar was $3.49 and we used about 60%, or $1.05 per serve
  • Branston Pickle was $13.31 for the jar, and we used about 1/5th, or $1.33 per serve
  • Apple adds 20c per serve
  • Pickled Onion adds 10c per serve.

A very delightful and tasty meal for $2.68 per serve.
