¡Viva Mexico! Breakfast Enchiladas And An Arroz Con Leche Bar #giveaway #primeroALDI

¡Viva Mexico! Breakfast Enchiladas And An Arroz Con Leche Bar #giveaway #primeroALDI

This post is sponsored by ALDI Supermarkets. However all opinions and recipes are 100% my own. I spent under $40 dollars at ALDI to create this brunch menu. I made Breakfast Enchiladas and an arroz con leche bar.

Last week I got an email from ALDI supermarket that asked if I would be interested in a challenge. As I read further it stated that I would have to create a menu to entertain a large group of family and/or friends for a soccer brunch. Immediately I thought “I welcome this challenge, and why not do it Sunday the 17th of June in time for us to cheer on our beloved MEXICO!!!!” They were basically asking me to have a soccer viewing party at my house on a $40 dollar budget. I love hosting parties and if I could make it happen with 40 bucks, even more to celebrate. Since we were obviously rooting for Mexico a Mexican brunch would be ideal. I decided to make a tray of breakfast enchiladas with huevos on top, an arroz con leche bar, and serve orange juice too. (more…)

My cousin Justine and her roommate are insane soccer lovers.  Their favorite team is Mexico, actually during the current soccer matches they have several teams they will be rooting for as it is a process of elimination.  My cousin is interested in celebrating her favorite sport this year by having a soccer viewing party.  There’s only one problem, she’s never had people over to entertain before.  She’s a bit nervous about it but I told her I’d help her with her big soccer entertaining debut. Cost Plus World Market is this Summer of Soccer shopper’s one-stop shop and they would cover all her entertainment needs with foods from around the globe, dish-ware, and gorgeous decor. This gathering was sure to impress her friends and her roommate. (more…)

It’s funny how quickly time flies. Last summer, I was in Italy absorbing the culture and of course eating lots of amazing food, grabbing anything I thought would be a delicious discovery. I remember sitting on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea at a little outdoor cafe and ordering a bag filled with beer battered veggies and fries served with a cold beer. I had never seen anything quite like it back here in the United States and was ready to adopt this new treat. (more…)
