Huge Aldi Grocery Haul 5-25-2016

1 Jun

Two to three times a year I like to “shop” my pantry, freezer, and fridge.  I like to use up what we have.  I find that I waste a lot less food doing this.  I love that it gets me to be more creative in the kitchen and it makes it easier to clean the fridge and pantry J I’m all about that…BTW, I just read an article that said homemakers in the 50’s did over 50 hours of housework a week…..phew…..I am so grateful for modern conveniences!

I love watching and seeing what others are shopping for so I thought I would once again share my Aldi grocery haul.

I share that I like to use coconut oil as a moisturizer but am pretty clueless on how to cook with it!  I would love to see how you use it. Please leave a link or recipe in the comments…I would LOVE to check it out!

You can view my Aldi Grocery Haul here.

Thanks for visiting!

Strawberry Cheesecake Salad

15 Aug

There is something about the words strawberry and cheesecake that just makes my day. So imagine my delight on a recent Pinterest pin-fest that I came across this little gem. So in my usual fashion I decided to make my sweet and sometimes brave family guinea pigs once again. If you are interested in this recipe keep on reading.

This and love is all you need.
Add the yogurt, cool whip, and pudding mix into a bowl and mix well. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
If you made it the whole hour-pat yourself on the back. Add all sliced strawberries, bananas, and marshmallows. Mix well.
Just for the sake of “science” I dished two little scoops on the plate. Portion 1-NO crushed graham crackers. Portion 2-With crushed graham crackers. So what’s the verdict?……..
  Two enthusiastic on camera thumbs up and three off camera thumbs up.   No graham crackers was the winner.

We really enjoyed it and it couldn’t of been easier!  It is best when served fresh . If you would like a little crunch-go ahead and get wild and add some crushed graham crackers on top.

Recipe:

12 oz whipped topping (Cool Whip)

3.4 oz box cheesecake flavored pudding ( don’t add the milk)

3-6 oz strawberry yogurt

1 lb fresh strawberries, sliced

3 bananas, sliced (do this right before serving to prevent browning)

Miniature marshmallows (I used 1/2 the bag)

Thaw whipped topping if frozen.  In a large bowl stir together whipped topping, yogurts, and pudding powder. Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour.   Wash and slice strawberries.  Before serving add strawberries, bananas, and marshmallows.  Add crushed graham crackers on top if desired.

Follow me on Pinterest. You know you wanna!
