Avocado Sandwich

Avocado was on sale for $0.49 each at a grocery store in my area. I purchased 7 of them. We got eggs from farm raised chickens for $0.65 a dozen. We purchased the buns on sale at about $1.87. They are French Steak Rolls-24 count for $3.97 originally. I get them at the bakery side of the grocery store when they go on sale and store them in my freezer. I also purchase Wheat Sub Rolls-6 count. They go on sale for $1.42 instead of $2.74 their original price. I fed my family of seven this meal for dinner and have leftover for my lunch at work the next day. The onion came from my garden and are Yellow Potato Onion. Sometimes I plan my meal around what is on sale in the groceries stores’ weekly ads. This is one of these instances. For $6.60 (0.49*7+0.65*2+1.87), I served my family a dinner they all enjoyed even the kids. I didn’t include the cost of items I have in my pantry like salt, sugar, vinegar. But I didn’t use all the buns either and I have leftover avocado for lunch the next day.

Preheat the oven at 400 degree F. Bake the buns for few minutes or until they are warm and crunchy outside. Remove them from the oven.
