This would cost me about six bucks at Aldis or less, only i would not have been able to get Cilantro. which was $1.69, so w/o that it would have been $14.18 and we have no tax on food so it is what it is.
$6 is pretty good! I'm thinking that would be $8-$12 at HEB. The tomato is the highest variable, I think. Not sure what kind of lettuce that is or what it runs. I basically only buy the hydroponic lettuce, which is high.
