Want $20 to spend at Aldi?

I’ve been busy cooking up some delicious fall foods with ingredients from Aldi….

Butternut Squash Soup.

Crustless Pumpkin Pie…

And I tried a new pumpkin bread recipe from Cook’s Illustrated, which involves cooking the canned pumpkin briefly in order to get rid of the slightly metallic flavor it gets from the can.


It was delicious and we ate it quickly and so I have no photos.

We did make an instagram video of the process, though….you can see that right here.

And when I made my pumpkin pie this last time, I cooked the pumpkin before baking the pie, and I think it did taste better that way. (I really should make two side-by-side to compare!)

You can see videos of all three of these recipes on my instagram. (Don’t worry if you don’t have instagram…you should still be able to see the videos by clicking on the links.)

The ingredients for all of these recipes are available at Aldi (for great prices, as usual!), and one of you will get to shop for free!

I’ve got a $20 Aldi USA gift certificate to give away to one of you, and to enter, you just need to leave a comment.

Squash. I love it prepared just about any way you can think of, but mostly roasted with butter and salt. Yum.

So excited to tell you that I finally got to shop at Aldi! We (belatedly) honeymooned in Orlando last month. Arriving five hours before check-in, we used GPS to avoid tolls from the airport and explore a little. When we passed an Aldi, we had to turn around and go back. We had a blast, exploring every aisle and buying a cartful of groceries. DH did not know that I had gotten an upgrade on our room to one with a kitchenette, I think he just thought I was a little nuts. We had fun with the carts (brilliant strategy) and we bought cute Aldi shopping bags for gifts (10-cent souvenirs, woo-hoo!) for our frugal (and envious) friends. We loved everything, but especially memorable were the pumpkin bagels with pumpkin spice cream cheese. And, yes, since we ate so many meals in, we went back a second time and found even more yummy deliciousness. If it weren't for you, Kristen, I never would have known about Aldi, except now I want one of my own. I used to be happy that I had a nearby Costco and a Winco about a half hour away. Now I see how nicely an Aldi would fit into the mix.

Oh, that's lovely to hear! Now, Aldi just needs to get to your corner of the country. :)

Hope :)

Mmm. My favorite fall recipe is "sausage"-corn chowder. (I say "sausage" because we are vegetarian, and so we use veggie-sausage links.) :)
