IN MY LIFE
My house has been smelling amazing for the past few days because I’ve been trying out recipes for a twist on Thanksgiving: Friendsgiving. Inspired by ALDI, not only did I try out some of their amazingly delicious recipes (like baked apples wrapped in bacon & drunken prunes), but I also came up with my own recipe for sweet & savory sweet potato bites.
You can find all the details for my recipe here, along with step by step pictures: http://bit.ly/SPbites
Not only can you find a great deal at ALDI, they’ve also partnered with Venmo to donate meals to Feeding America every time someone uses their unique “Thanksgiving Turkey Hand” emoji to pay a friend on their platform. (More details about that on my blog as well).
Turns out I’ll be speaking to the youth group parents at church tonight to help out the speaker who got sick, so pray I still have enough left in me to last through the night!
