Really Cheap Eats

I originally thought about calling this post “dumpster diving” but that’s really not true, and I didn’t want to give the wrong impression.

The grocery store at the mall will heavily discount their deli food at the end of the day. If you’re lucky when the discounts occur, you can have quite a selection. That’s what happened the other day. I just got off my shift with W-S, waiting for The Cat to finish. Usually, we would eat out, but since both of us were still on the mend I figured we buy food and eat at home.

The timing was perfect. Made it to the grocery store just when the mark downs were happening. I picked up five containers of food, plus white rice, and one SPAM musubi for a little over ten dollars.



Three containers of kalua cabbage, one container of beef curry (local style), and one container of chili with beans. Not bad. The Cat mostly ate the kalua cabbage and rice, me, the beef curry, the chili, and the SPAM musubi.

For the chili, I scrambled two eggs (Gordon Ramsey style), because, to me, eggs and chili are a good match.

In a nutshell, The Cat got three decent meals out of the bounty. The Mouse got two. Five meals for less than three dollars a meal. Not bad at all, not bad at all.

Hope your new years planning is going well.

Enjoy. Eat well.
