Budget Friendly Holiday Meals from Sam’s Club | KitchenAid Stand Mixer {Giveaway- ENDED}

 

Wow, another holiday season is over.  But, I have one more holiday gift to giveaway!  See how you can enter to win a KitchenAid Pro HD 5 qt Stand Mixer at the end of this post! EDITED:  GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED

I hope you were surrounded by the ones you love most!  Our holiday seemed to just go on and on and on, and I was sad to see it end, as out of town family loaded up their car and headed back to Kentucky yesterday.

It always seems like SO much prep, and then BAM! it’s all over way too fast!

Right before Christmas the good people at Sam’s Club challenged several bloggers to create a holiday meal with an assigned budget.  My budget was $60, and I decided to use it for a  pre New Years Eve dinner with just the four of us. 

I had been cooking, and baking all week, so I decided to let Sam’s Club do the cooking for me!  I wanted an easy, yet delicious meal we could all enjoy.

Sam’s Club made it simple.  By shopping their Artisan Fresh section, I was able to put a great tasting meal on the table with little stress for me! – and we even have left overs!

Budget Friendly Holiday Meal

I couldn’t have come much closer to my budget!  My total was $59.21.

Here’s what I picked up:

Chicken and Bacon Bruschetta ($9.98)

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo ($10.88)

Spring Mix for salad ($4.47)

Herb & Garlic Focaccia ($2.78)

Artisan Fresh Cheesecake Sampler ($14.98)

Wine ($12.98)

$56.07 + $3.14 (tax) = $59.21

 This was a nice treat and holiday meal that wouldn’t break your back or budget, leaving more time for family and guests!  You could stretch your dollar even further if you wanted to cook your own meal.  Sam’s Club has taken all the work out of that for you too, with their Simply Delicious Meals site, full of recipes, meal plans, wine pairing and even shopping lists!

    My favorite New Year’s Eve dish/snack is old school ‘nuts and bolts’ – not to be confused with today’s healthified Chex mix!

    Rotel cheese dip and eggnog on New Year’s Eve. On New Year’s Day, all the traditional “good luck” foods from the South: black-eyed peas, cornbread, hog jowl (!).

    Usually we try to go out to eat on New Years Eve. But this year the budget is tighter and we have been doing way less of that. Since it fell on a Saturday night and Saturdays are our family movie night we made pizza and popcorn, our usual. And it was the best New Years Eve we have had!! It may be the way we celebrate every year now.

    I found your website about a month ago when I started getting into decorating cookies for my first ever cookie exchange. I received huge complements for my first time and used your Butter Cookie recipe and Icing. I didn’t think I would get into decorating now I have I’m loving it and making cookies for friends is pure therapy for me.
    I’ve since tweaked the recipes to my liking and I’m practicing everyday and getting tons of ideas.
    Thank You for your blog I sure have enjoyed reading and getting ideas :)
