Eggs. Ham. Veggies. Cheese. Yup, Easter’s this weekend! Tis the best week for stocking up on those items – especially ham and cheese as they freeze really well! See the list of what’s on sale here.
- Sweet Potato Stuffed Peppers – I admit that this recipe looks to be delicious, but out of my comfort zone! But with sweet potatoes on sale at Aldi, this would be the week to try them!
- Pineapple Brown Sugar Spiral Ham – Looks like a great recipe – and in a crockpot too! You’re your limited oven space for other goodies!
- Skillet Italian Sausage & Peppers – I’m putting this one on my “Must Try” list! I’d probably simplify it a little bit to use my semi-homemade sauce, but this had me drooling!
- Chicken Noodle Casserole – this uses the Cream of Chicken soups that Hy-Vee has on sale. It really is comfort food at its best.
- French Onion Burgers – We made cheeseburgers this past week and it reminded me of how good this recipe is. In a skillet or big pan is a great way to make burgers indoors!
Pick up some strawberries? I totally recommend Pioneer Woman’s Strawberry Shortcake Cake. It can be a bit of work, but it’s very, very, very tasty! I wish it traveled well because I’d definitely take it to my in-law’s house this weekend.
In need of an easy dessert? With marshmallows and peanuts on sale at several places this week, make some fudge! This is a very easy way to do it and a guaranteed crowd pleaser! I didn’t have any peanuts the other day when I made this, so I used cashews. Wonderful option as well!
Rocky Road Fudge
3 cups chocolate chips (about a bag and a half)
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted peanuts
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1) Prepare an 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish by lining with foil. An 8×8 dish is what I use, but a 9×9 would work too – you’ll just get “shorter” bars.
2) In a large pot, combine the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and salt on low heat. Melt the ingredients while stirring often. Heat and stir until melted and smooth.
3) Stir in the marshmallows and peanuts. It might get a little gritty, but keep stirring until smooth again.
4) Spread it out in the pan. Refrigerate until cool. Remove and cut into squares. You can cut them as big as you want, but I often cut at least 30 pieces – it’s THAT rich!
