Dec 31: Spanish Mussels with Chorizo and Tomato-Wine Sauce


Because it was going to be raining tonight, we swapped our lunch and dinner, and had Chicken Katzu on Curry Rice for $36.70 or $18.35 per serve.


In a time of ever-fluid meal plans, we swapped our Spanish Mussels with Chorizo and Tomato-Wine Sauce to tonight.

  • The pre-cooked Mussels were $2.29 or $1.15 per serve
  • Sherry adds 58c per serve
  • The Chorizo was $5.11 after all discounts and we used half, or $1.28 per serve
  • Add 85c for other ingredients.

Tasty as always for $3.86 per serve.
