Sep 23: Ahi Tuna Tataki with Bento Box


The par-baked Panini Rolls we have enjoyed for years have disappeared from Trader Joe’s shelves, so we experimented with par-baked French Sandwich Rolls from La Brea Bakery (via Ralph’s). We filled them with Turkey Chipotle Meatloaf, Coleslaw and a Chipotle Mayo.

  • The Sandwich Rolls are 89c per serve
  • The Meatloaf is $2.53 per full serve, or $1.27 per lunch serve
  • The Coleslaw Mix was $1.99 and we used 1/4, or 25c per serve
  • We made our own Dressing from Mayonnaise, and Chipotle Hot Sauce for 30c per serve.

The French Sandwich Rolls got our approval and the sandwich was very tasty for $2.71 per serve.


We added an extra Bento Box plus Ahi Tuna Tataki because the Foodies were celebrating the completion of another yard project. It was enjoyed with French Champagne to celebrate for $20.95 per serve.

The Bento Box was $18.38 per serve with tax and tip, while 12 oz of Tuna was $5.19, or $2.60 per serve.
