It’s our last day in Minnesota! We’re heading to Grand Forks, North Dakota later today for my cousin’s wedding, so it’ll be fun to see more family! It’s been quite a week. On Wednesday, Alex and I went to the state fair and ate lots of cheese curds & cookies so on Thursday we decided to be a bit more active.
I went to a Zumba class with Alex’s mom which was so much fun. I hadn’t been to a Zumba class in awhile and I forgot that it’s basically a non-stop dance party. I need to hit up a Zumba class more often. After getting our exercise, Jana, Nicole and I spent the evening canning pickles. It was so much fun!
I can’t share the recipe because it’s a Thomson family secret. 😉 but since it’s Friday, I do have another budget friendly recipe! This week, it’s goat cheese pasta with asparagus!
Not only is this one budget friendly, it’s also super easy.
Goat Cheese Pasta with Asparagus
- 4oz goat cheese – $3.50
- 12 oz whole wheat pasta- $2
- 1/2 pound fresh or frozen asparagus- $3
- 1 tbsp butter $0.25
- Salt & pepper
I love this recipe because it’s easy to make, it only takes about 15 minutes to get dinner on the table, and I usually have these things on hand. If you don’t have or can’t find asparagus, fresh or frozen peas would work well! I’m not normally a creamy pasta person but this sauce is still very light so you don’t feel weighed down after eating!
