A couple of good things

This week Aldi has a lot of good deals on produce, such as cucumbers for 29 cents, mushrooms for 59 cents, baby carrots for 49 cents, and others I can't remember at the moment. 🙂 So you might want to check it out. Our sales at Aldi run from Wednesday until the following Tuesday. Another item I have been buying at Aldi is bananas. Since there are just two of us eating bananas at our house, very often some would get over ripe. This is not always a problem since the over ripe ones are good for baking. But, recently DelMonte has come up with these special bags which help slow down the ripening. They really do work. I have kept bananas for over a week before they even start to freckle. I'm sure other stores carry bananas in these bags too, but I have found them at Aldi and wanted to share the fact that they really do work.

Another thing I want to share is this recipe for Ranch Dressing. I have found several recipes similar to this on-line and it really is good. It is DH's favorite salad dressing. It would also be good for a quick potato salad dressing.

Good Ranch Dressing

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tsps. dried parsley (or a small handful of fresh, chopped)
1 tsp. dried dill (or a small handful of fresh, chopped)
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder or garlic salt
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and whisk together. Store in refrigerator.

I have lots of fresh dill and parsley in the garden right now, so this is what I have been using. I have tried making this with lowfat mayonnaise but it was a little too thick. You can thin it by adding a bit more buttermilk or even some regular milk.

Have a blessed weekend!

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. We can’t always get ranch dressing here, so it is nice to know how to make it.
