Nicole made this dip recipe last night and it was so good. I kept wanting to get up during the night and grab another chip and scoop more of the dip!

Dinner Tonight

We had too much food to use the new luncheon plates but it was ok . . dinner was delicious!

That’s a sweet potato from the garden, venison from the back yard, with cream/horseradish sauce, green beans and homemade bread.

I wish I had a truck load of these sweet potatoes. They are so good and so creamy! I’m planting more next year!

The backstrap was grilled to perfection! The sauce had just a bit of brandy, sour cream and horseradish. It was so good!  The venison was fork tender. This is a meal I could eat every night . . I think. 

We’re Getting An Aldi

I know many of my readers will think I’m nuts for getting so excited about a grocery store but . . we’re getting an Aldi. I would never have dreamed that would happen. How I found out is pretty funny.

Sunday we were sitting at the table eating and I said to Vince “I wish we had an Aldi!” He looked me straight in the eyes and said “We ARE getting one!” NO! I thought he was joking. 

I got up from the table, not even finished eating, went to the local newspaper’s website and searched for “Aldi” because they put everything in the newspaper if we’re getting a new business. Nothing was mentioned that I could find. I went back to the table and said “Why are you telling me that when  you know it isn’t true?” He kept telling me who all had told him that it was true. He even knew where they were putting it. Thank goodness, they’re renovating an already built place and it will be open soon . . I hope.

Then I googled “Aldi and Brownwood” and sure enough . . they have a job fair coming up next week and there was other info about it and we’re getting an Aldi. I really like that store!

Here’s a blog post from a few years ago where I compared Aldi’s brand of steel cut oats to a name brand. The name brand was $5.99 and the same size at Aldi was $1.99, and without knowing which brand was which, we all chose the Aldi oats.

I can hardly wait til it’s open. Vince said “You know it will be crazy the first week or so. I wouldn’t go for a while.” I know that’s true but I doubt I’ll be able to stay away for long! 

What does that say about me that a new grocery store in town could make me so happy?
