Sandwich math

We like sub sandwiches here at the Casa de Chaos, but even the 6-inch basic subs can run around $5, depending on the shop.

But a basic sub is easy enough to make at home. Ten bucks for deli turkey and ham; $1.99 for a pack of 12 hoagy rolls (both from Costco); $1 for a head of lettuce; $2 for a pack of tomatoes.
 I won't count the cheese and the condiments, since we usually have those anyway.

So, for $15, I can make a dozen 6-inch subs. A dozen subs at the local shop -- at least $60! Admittedly, it's not the super-premium or Italian dinner between bread types of sandwiches. But it's pretty darn filling.
