Could drying time be an issue here?   mjb.
My impression is $10 for everything, not $10 per serving.   Had I gotten home from work earlier, I would have made a tasty dinner for about $4 to kick things off.  But leftover soup is what it is tonight.   mjb.

Congratulations, Jake!    I too expected more entries and a wider variety, like a classic quiche and bacon wrapped grilled peppers.   I had planned to have some bacon ready, the first slab was to go in the cure before we left for Phoenix a few weeks ago.
