Kirkwood Popcorn Chicken Idea

Hey there! I was about to cook up some lunch and decided why not share my way to prepare it, so here it is! I buy this yummy, inexpensive Kirkwood Popcorn Chicken at Aldi, and I love it! The first thing I do is put it on a plate and microwave it so that it’s warmed all the way through.  

   At this point you could go ahead and eat them, since it’s fully cooked already, but they have a sort of spongey texture, so I like to take it a step farther, now that it’s microwaved I put it in a pan with butter, and franks hot sauce, and fry them until they are covered in sauce and crispy! 

 
Ta-dah now you’ve made a quick, cheap lunch/dinner. I love to cook this when I’m just cooking for  myself, but it would also be a great dinner! I was eating it for dinner this time so I cooked up some pasta with butter, cheese, and balsamic vinegar glaze! 

 
I hope you enjoyed this post, I know it’s pretty simple but I know I enjoy reading about easy things like this that I might not have thought of!

What I Bought Today- Walmart & Aldi

Hello! Today I wanted to share a few things I bought that I LOVE and continuously repurchase! 

 The camis from walmart are amazing!! I love them so much, they are only $1.68! How perfect right? I got four of them today because I feel like they haven’t had them the last couple times I’ve looked (I usually go to walmart once or twice a week, and I look almost every time), so I was so excited to find them again. I already had it in black, an olive been color, and a orangish color (more orange tha the one pictured), then today I bought another black one, a light purple, a burgundy, and a salmon pink color. I got two of them in an xxl and two in a xl because both sizes fit me so I figured I would get both and see which ones I liked best (the ones I already owned at xxl, so wanted to try out the xl). I just can’t say enough good about these, they are super cheap, and surprisingly good quality, I probably wear the ones I already have about once a week and they still look as good, except the orangish one did get dark stains around the armpit, which is my own sweaty fault.. Seriously just I but one! I know they have s-xxl in the junior section, and I’ve seen I think l-xxxl in the adult section (but beware they can be shorter than some might like). Okay enough abou the the shirts, check out these snacks I love from aldi! 

 These fit and active cinnamon swirl rice cakes are soo yummy! Almost defeats the purpose of being healthy because I want to eat the whole box! I would compare them to a less sweet version of those cinnamon twists from Taco Bell. Being a fit & active product I made sure to check the ingredients before I bought them, and they have no artificial sweeteners (I’ve explained in other posts I just don’t like the taste). On the bottom picture is these super delicious colored sour belts! I usually eat the sour air head extreme strip things, but they just don’t fill the sour craving, so when I found these I was super thrilled to find that these have a nice sour bite to them! Then I looked at the ingredients, I couldn’t believe they are colored with fruit/vegetable concentrates! So in love! I hope them have them next time I go because sadly I found these today in the “buy now limited selection” type box and got pretty disappointed about that, but we will see what happens! 

Thanks for reading, hope I inspired someone to try one (or all) of these items!

Aldi favorites

Just sharing some of my favorite things to buy at Aldi grocery store.  

 
This yummy spreadable cheese, so great on an English muffin for breakfast or on crackers, and it’s only 25 calories! I don’t like the garlic and herb flavor, but the original and jalapeƱo are great!  

 Spinach. Not much to say it’s super cheap here compared to other stores. (Um I bought two bags and I has opened one, I made a salad for lunch one day, and I found I bug on a leaf, I’m like no Kasi don’t flip out it happens, so I throw that leaf out, look through the salad a bit don’t see anything, take a bit, then a leaf under the bit I took had a bug on it. Pretty unappetizing, so I probably won’t be eating any spinach for a while.) 

 Yum these are great I could eat a whole bag. If you haven’t tried them then do it. They remind me of Muncho chips, just not as salty. 

 Cashews are one of my favorite nuts, I like to split them into ziplock bags so they are portioned out and ready to go in my lunch or purse. 

 This is my favorite bread, I really don’t eat or buy any other kind of plain bread anymore. This just has a good flavor and texture. 

 Cheese!! I always buy my husband the block sharp cheddar cheese from here, and string cheese for me because it has less calories and is already portioned out. (Update-I went shopping tonight and compared the happy farms string cheese to the light and fit brand ones and they have the same ingredients but the light and fit ones have 50 calories, happy farms has 70. I bought the light and fit ones so I’m excited to try them.) 

 Greek yogurt, the ones pictured are Greek parfait caramel ones with chocolate chips and pretzel bits, plus a coffee one I haven’t tried yet. I love the caramel ones, they are so yummy it’s like eating dessert for breakfast, with only 110 calories. I also love the strawberry blended Greek yogurt that has only 100 calories, and doesn’t have any fake sugars (I don’t eat aspartame, sucralose or other artificial sweeteners, they taste gross and give me a headache). 

 
These whole grain English muffins are my fav right now. Like I mentioned above I out on some spreadable cheese and sometimes a poached egg and yum. These are only $1.29, not sure how much they are other places but I think that’s pretty cheap. Plus these have a good amount of protein in them (I think like 5 grams?). 

  I usually buy the canned tuna (I think .69) but these packets are great for hubby to take in the truck with him, and only $.89 cents, I think that’s pretty awesome when it’s usually $2 or more for the packet. 

These are just some of the items I love to purchase here, I also buy fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs, almond/cashew milks, cereal, cottage cheese, granola bars, wheat crackers that my husband loves! So many great deals! Aldi really is the best store!
