Everything cooks according to the package, and let me tell you…this tenderloin does NOT disappoint.

And finally, on Saturday, our family does breakfast. The great thing about this meal is you can change it up a ton.

Biscuits for the win! The sausage is great sliced and fried or on the grill. Use the eggs with all of your leftover produce for omelettes, or simply fry them up. Yum!

Save on and eat well, sisters. If you have more questions write them in the comments!

    That turkey tenderloin… I will admit, I bought it not expecting much. After all, it’s 3 bucks. How good can it really be? WRONG! We LOVE it! We broil ours. Never tried it baking or on the grill. Have you tried those ways? We can make two meals out of a pack too! Eat the turkey with sides for one meal and then make turkey sandwiches with the leftovers! I’m a sandwich meat snob and processed sandwich meat is my last choice. So this. This. Yes.
    Making an Aldi run today and plan to steal your menu!
