Hubby’s birthday is next week! But we are celebrating it tomorrow because my son, DIL, and West are coming to dinner. Hubby won’t see them again until a week from Sunday.
So we are having a cookout. It is an easy menu.
I picked up the fixings at Aldi’s and Top’s today. Here is what I purchased:
2 lbs. of Organic Grass Fed 85/15 hamburger – $ 5.29 each = $10.58
1 Wavy Chips – $ 1.19
Bananas – @ $.44 a lb. = $ 1.06
Bag of Carrots – $.89
1 Mango – $ .89
2 Peaches – @ $ 1.39 a lb. = $ 1.61
Red Grapes – $ 3.72
Belly Bella Mushrooms – $ 1.29
Strawberries – $ 2.29
2 Cucumbers – $ .49 each = $ .98
1 Sour Cream – $ .89
1 Hamburger Rolls – $ .65
1 Brioche Rolls – $ 3.69
1 Half and Half – $ 1.55
Total was $ 15.33.
Top’s is where I got dessert. I already had the Chocolate Syrup. I am just showing you what we are having. I purchased:
Vanilla Ice Cream
Total was $ 13.83. Hubby loves Top’s Bakery Carrot Cake. The cake is small but big enough for 5 people. I am not even sure that I will eat any. I have candles for it. The chocolate syrup, of course, is to put on the ice cream.
I will cook hamburgers and/or cheeseburgers on the grill and saute mushrooms and onions for them. Everyone will have their choice of buns.
Earlier in the day, I will make a fruit salad and a veggie platter. We have other veggies in the fridge that I will be using too. I will be making homemade dill dip and ranch dip for the veggies and serving chips and pickles too. I think Hubby will really enjoy it.
My birthday is in October so we will go out to eat some day in between both of our birthdays for a little celebration.

We are having cheeseburgers for dinner tonight. I have been wanting one all week. I found Cumin at Aldi yesterday for 94¢, you just can't beat their prices. Hope your dh has a great birthday next week and you all enjoy the celebration tomorrow.
Thanks so much! That is a great price at Aldi's. I love shopping there.
Sounds great! If you have any hummus lovers out there, making hummus is really easy & cheaper than buying. (You do have to make it several times for it to be cheaper, given the cost of buying a jar of tahini). Anyway, the recipe I like is https://www.inspiredtaste.net/15938/easy-and-smooth-hummus-recipe/
Thanks for the recipe.
Hi AD, this is Chris. Happy birthday to hubby, your birthday dinner for him sounds wonderful. Our daughter's birthday is next week and I will be making a birthday dinner for her. Not sure yet what she wants.
Thanks from Hubby! I hope your daughter has a wonderful birthday. I know her dinner will be terrific if you make it.
