Today I fixed Lemon Butter Cod, roasted beets and rice mix.
As for the cost, the 2 pound package of cod was $15.50. I used half (1 pound) of it so that’s $7.75. For the spices, I’m counting that as $1. I had all them, didn’t have to buy any and there wasn’t a whole lot used. For the chicken broth, I used 1 T. Better than Bouillon so I’m adding in 40 cents for that. I used two lemons so I’m counting that as $1. For the fish dish, that’s $10.15. We each had two pieces of fish, as many beets and as much rice as we wanted. Vince got seconds on rice and beets
The organic beets were $9 for five pounds. There were six beets and I cooked two but we only ate half of them. They were pretty big so I’m counting that as $1.50, even though I cooked the two smallest ones in the bunch. These came from Azure Standard and were probably the best beets I’ve ever had, including the ones I’ve grown myself so I’m going now to see if I can order more for my delivery this month..
A box of rice mix is something I made and I’m thinking that cost 75 cents to make but we only ate half of it so I’ll say 40 cents for the rice for two.
This amazing meal cost us a total of $12.05 for the both of us. We could not have eaten out for that price . . Vince! 🙂
