How do you cook your zucchini? I’ve been roasting mine with other veggies, usually carrots, sweet potatoes, green beans or peppers. I’m starting to get bored with it though!
Brigette Shevy says
I love the air fryer for zucchini! I use olive oil and garlic plus salt. I also love it cooked in a grill basket on the grill during the summer months. It pairs well with so many other veggies!
Your way is a favorite also. 🙂

I know your budget has gone up a little but I’m genuinely surprised that you can feed your family on $100/Week. I’m at $200/Week for 5 of us and sometimes it doesn’t seem like enough. What’s your secret?
Brigette Shevy says
I just shop sales, use coupons, and look for /ask around for local hidden gems (like the discount store and roadside stand pictured in this post). WE eat a LOT of venison, thanks to my husband and son being avid hunters. I realize that cuts our year-round budget significantly, and most people don’t have access to that!
Every bit you save is significant, so kudos to you for doing your absolute best! That’s huge!
I shop at Aldi’s too but in NY – prices must be different in my area. I’ve never gotten a gallon of milk for $1.39 – probably not for 10 years – what a DEAL!
Brigette Shevy says
Aldi prices are SO different throughout the country! They are even significantly different between the two Aldi’s near me (about 15 minutes apart from each other). It’s crazy!
The milk was expiring soon and so the price was reduced. However, our normal milk prices are really cheap compared to other places. Milk is usually between $2.00 – $2.50 a gallon. I have no idea why it’s that inexpensive, because I used to pay more than that when we lived in Detroit 10 years ago!
