A while back, I’m not sure when but before my cataract surgeries, I mentioned to Hubby that Aldi had hams on sale for $.99/lb. I was thinking about going to get one as I thought that was a good price. And I had an Aldi coupon which is so rare that I thought I would do a little stock-up.
That Saturday, Hubby said he was going to go check the mail and put gas in the car. I figured he was going to go wash the car, too. You know a new car cannot be washed too much. LOL! He was gone for a while, but sometimes he goes out and runs around, so I wasn’t worried. Usually, just when I think about starting to worry he shows up.
After a while, he called me and asked me to bring the cart out and meet him at the car. I knew that meant he had gone shopping. J He had run to Kroger to get some soft drinks and “swung by Aldi” to check out the hams. He bought 3 of them (bone in, not spiral cut)! But the price was great, so I didn’t complain and did not even mention that I had a coupon. Can’t cry over missed coupons, right? We put the hams in the freezer and went about our business.
Then last Thursday, a week ago, I noticed a ham in the fridge thawing so I figured that meant ham on the weekend. Saturday I put it in the oven and since “it’s your ham”, I ended up cooking dinner. LOL! We had some left over baked beans in the fridge and I made mashed potatoes and garlic bread.
I have to tell you, that was the BEST ham I have eaten in years! It was so good I wanted to just keep eating it. I didn’t, but I wanted to. It was so much better than the boneless hams we have been buying at Kroger for the last several years. Even the fancy spiral cut ones. I ate ham Sunday evening, too.
After dinner, I cut most of the ham off the bone and put some in the fridge, some in the freezer and left a bit on the bone and Hubby made a big pot of beans with the ham bone in it a few nights ago. It they were delish!
I am still thinking about that ham a week later. LOL! It is just that good.
We are on a roll with Aldi, I guess. I got some more coupons in the mail, so think I will go make a stockup run this weekend. When Aldi opened around the block, I thought I would be there all the time, but Hubby has been doing lots of the grocery shopping recently and he just heads to Kroger most of the time. But I still love my Aldi!
In other news, my eyes are great and I finished the drops yesterday. Yeah for that being over. Next issue is seeing the podiatrist to see what he can do about bone spurs in my feet. I am starting to fall apart.
Happy weekend to all!
