Sunday 6/29; Oversized Helps the Budget

I am not sure whether you can appreciate the enormous muffaletta in the picture. It served for a very filling lunch and dinner for me on Sunday.
We spent nothing on breakfast since I was still too full from the day before and my husband shared his breakfast with our three year old. Lunch and dinner for me was the muffaletta pictured above. We ordered an equally big chicken sandwich for my son. Cost of lunch and dinner $14. In the afternoon we went to the River Walk Mall and got a fruit shake for my son and I. Cost $6.70
We also bought some fudge $7 (made right in front of us) and a t-shirt= $10.
New total: $283.58

    MMMM…I love Muffaleta (sp?)

    However, I have not ACTUALLY tried it anywhere – only made one at home! I live in Georgia where no one has even heard of it!

    I have made them at home too, but it turns out I am the only one who likes them. So buying all those cold cuts for one sandwich was not economical for us. 🙁
    But I have a friend who also lived in La and has a coffee shop in WI. He makes this for lunch so when the craving attacks, I just hit his place.

    Oh my gosh, that muffaletta looks so good! I’m from Louisiana and even though I only live one state over now (in Texas), I just can’t find a muffaletta as good as I can get back home!

    Hi Jenny!
    Thank you for stopping by. I lived in Houston one summer and there is a chain (or there was 4 years ago at least) of cajun restaurants there. It was a very informal place and did lots of lunches for working people. I can’t recall the name but they had very good muffalettas and also delicious corn bread. OMG that was so good!
