Today’s lunch was a return to the simple Ploughman’s Lunch of Branson Pickle and Cheddar on Crispbread with Sliced Apple and Pickled Onions on the side.
- The Rye Crispbread was $3.29 for a pack of 20, or 33c per serve
- The Cheddar was $3.49 and we used about 60%, or $1.05 per serve
- Branson 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 variety of flavors stop it from getting boring, for $3.01 per serve.
It was time for our Country Deli Dinner of Marinated Skirt Steak, Home Fries and Sautéed Vegetables, which we split between us and enhance with three Eggs. One serve gets the Home Fries, half the Steak and three Eggs fried at home, while the other gets the remaining Steak, Mixed Vegetables.
With the addition of three Eggs, a meal for one becomes a generous meal for two, for only $18.66 per serve.
