Thanks to my partnership with ALDI the holidays came early this year! Whether you are looking for gourmet meats and cheeses for your charcuterie board, wines to pair them with, and all the ingredients and inspirations for a sit down meal, ALDI makes it super easy and convenient, all at cant beat prices! Especially for someone like me who always struggles with what to make, I love that i can check out ALDI's site at http://bit.ly/2dMeaol and use it as a resource for what to do for my own holiday meals! Beyond the food, they have holiday decorations for the inside and outside of the home, serve ware, cookware and barware, that you can use for your holidays are everyday use.
To show off all all the best of ALDI we had a private dinner with Carla Hall at her Brooklyn restaurant Carla Hall Southern Kitchen using ingredients and recipes from ALDI's #MakeHolidaysHappen campaign. The night began with a cocktail reception featuring wines, all different types of cheeses (my favorite being the smoked gouda), and meats. I probably could have just filled up on the prosciutto, but i did stop myself as we had a ton more food coming! After a quick demo from Carla showing how she created her Chicken Pot Pie Waffle recipe, we sat down for even more deliciousness that Carla made with ALDI ingredients and recipes. These holiday inspired dishes included a Chicken Pot Pie Waffle, Pineapple Glazed Ham, Squash and Baby Kale Salad with a Bacon Vinaigrette, Brussel Sprouts, Scalloped Potatoes, Croissant Bread Pudding, and an assortment of cookies you can find at ALDI.
The best part was that the meal didnt end there that night, as I was sent back with a HUGE goodie back from ALDI. I thought id be able to save some of the cookies and crackers for my own holiday parties, but too many late nights out led to everything being gone within a week. WHOOPS! Guess its back to ALDI for more! And whats cool too is that they are always bringing in specialty items, so I never know what amazingness I'm going to find when i go back. And since 90% of the products are ALDI exclusives, you are able to not only get the best products, but also the best prices! On avg you can save up to 50%! Its a WIN/WIN!
The experience all definitely inspired me, and you can make a holiday meal just as easy and amazing by checking out more recipes and ideas from ALDI at http://bit.ly/2dMeaol
