Last week was such a success in the menu department! I made my BBQ pulled pork sliders for the Super Bowl and they were a huge hit. For dessert, I layered brownies, chocolate pudding and cool whip in mason jars and was so excited to eat mine that I totally forgot to take a picture! Later on in the week I tried a new recipe for Olive Garden Copycat Zuppa Toscana Soup that Paul absolutely loved. That’s a big deal because he doesn’t get nearly excited about food as I do!
I didn’t need too many groceries this week, so I stopped at Aldi for produce and then ran into Ingles to pick up the best deals of the week. Watch my haul below to see what I grabbed!

I always look forward to your menu posts each week – they give me so much inspiration for my meal planning! And that mason jar dessert you made – oh my stars, it sounds amazing. Three of my favorite things in one jar! 😉 Sounds like an easy dessert that has a beautiful presentation. 🙂
I’m SO glad these posts are helpful, Susanna!! ❤
I shopped at my neighborhood Foodland this week as I only needed a few things and I did not want to drive into town. That dessert sounds yummy. I am one week into giving up sweets and I am realizing my sweet tooth was a very big part of my foodie life. Even yogurt is tasting good. I am eating it for breakfast as I usually had a granola bar and the ones that I eat are almost like eating a candy bar!!
I am not sure I could give up sweets! Good for you!
That layered brownie dessert sounds delicious!! We’re big brownie fans so I’ll have to keep that in mind the next time I need to take a dessert somewhere.
They were SO good! Paul doesn’t usually like anything mixed or layered and he loved it. 🙂
I’ve made that copycat soup before. It’s delicious!
Olive Garden has some great soups! I also have a recipe for their chicken gnocchi that we love.
