Some things are fantastic to buy in bulk. For instance, when there’s a stellar deal on paper towels with coupons I stock up like nobody’s business. Toilet paper also falls into this category. And then there are things like gigantic bags of salad that are on clearance. It’s really cheap but won’t last past tomorrow. You have to know when to stock up, when to freeze, and when to use.
Many times Aldi (my favorite go-to place for produce) has their broccoli, cauliflower, and potatoes on sale for cheap. You never know what to expect. You just check back during the week. The past couple weeks it’s been a 10 lb bag of russet potatoes on sale for $.99. Who in their right mind would pass those up? And since this is one of those things that could go bad in a matter of days, I was thinking of what and how I could use them up.
I ended up throwing together these Roasted Broccoli and Potatoes. They go really well together and play nicely with garlic.
This recipe is simple to make and is fairly cheap as well. Plus, it’s a great side dish for having company over.
