Last month’s party had two favorite posts from the same blogger: Our Good Life!
- Two Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge from Our Good Life
- Tik Tok Feta Cheese and Tomato Pasta from Our Good Life
In last month’s party, I shared 6 recipes I wanted to try this month. I only tried one of them, and my family really enjoyed it. I tweaked it a little bit by doubling some ingredients as we have a large family; but for the most part, it was made as it is written. We ate the Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole from The Lazy Gastronome for a breakfast dinner!
Here are some recipes I am hoping to try from March’s party:
- Peanut Butter No-Bake Bird Nest Cereal Cookies from Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck
- Slow Cooker Cheesy Hashbrown Potato & Sausage Soup from The Painted Apron
- Leftover Mashed Potato Doughnuts from Heritage Home Ec
- Garlic Knots from Jennifer Lambert
- Easy Fish Tacos from The House on Silverado
- Chicken Ramen Salad from Homemade on a Weeknight
- Crispy Potato Stacks from Moola Saving Mom
I also received two new recipe books that I am excited to share with you.
Aldi is my favorite store of all time. The only reason we ate as kids as because there was an Aldi close to our house. There was a period of time that my mom had less than $50 a week for any purchases she had to buy. Aldi was a life-saver!
The Unofficial ALDI cookbook has a section on the history of Aldi, and the author said she went shopping at the ALDI in Villa Park, Illinois, in the 1980’s, and that the ALDI there had to be one of the first ALDIs as the very first one opened in Iowa in 1976. Well, we moved to Villa Park in 1980, and that is the ALDI we went to as well.
When we moved to Florida, I told my husband that we would know if the move was God’s will if there was a Florida nearby. Praise the Lord! There is one with 15 minutes of my house — and they had gone in less than 10 years before we moved to Florida.
When I moved to Florida, I ran across many ALDI snobs. ALDI hadn’t been here that long, and the old-timers loved their double-priced Publix stores because they had a few BOGO sales. I told someone at our church how much I loved ALDI, so they went for the first time, loved it so much that they switched their loyalties!
Of course this recipe book could be used by going to any store as other stores have these ingredients as well, but if you are an ALDI lover, you will want to get this recipe book!
There are 75 recipes in this cookbook. You can find out more about The Unofficial ALDI Cookbook HERE.
The Ultimate Meal Prep Cookbook maps out meal planning “with 25 weekly plans that include a menu, a grocery list, and pantry list (both with plenty of substitution options), ingredient prep-ahead lists, and recipe make-ahead lists.”
This book tells you how to freeze different foods, prep for the week, have a stocked pantry, and much more. There are 25 meal plans. Do this entire cookbook two times and make it through an entire year!
It’s laid out in an easy-to-follow manner. Each meal plan gives a list of 4 meal plans plus a suggestion of a pantry recipe that is in the book. There are thirty pantry recipes immediately following the 25 meal plans. There are 130 recipes in this book!
For each meal plan, there is a page that tells you how those recipes all work together to be a good plan for making your life easier and for being recipes that you will enjoy. It also gives you all your lists: pantry item lists, make ahead list, prep ahead list, and your grocery list. Of course, if you don’t have everything in your pantry, you’ll want to add those items to your grocery list.
The meal plans do not include everything you would want for the meal. It is just for the main dish and usually a side like a salad or a vegetable or starch. So you would have to add in a bread item if desired or maybe another food item.
I feel for some people this would add variety back into your meals and take so much of the work of planning meals out of your life plus save money as you aren’t wasting food anymore!
