*** Add this week’s grocery list to your Instacart. ***


  1. You’ll need to check your pantry for staples not included in this Instacart list. See needed pantry staples below.
  2. The list feature doesn’t allow me to add more than one of an item, or to change the weight of items. Before adding the list to your cart, change the following:
    1. The garlic pierogies on special didn’t show up in Instacart. Either change the potato-cheddar pierogies quantity to two, OR, delete that and add a note to your shopper to buy two boxes of garlic pierogies. (Either will work in the recipe.)
    2. The family packs of boneless chicken thighs in this week’s add aren’t listed in Instacart; add a note to your shopper that you want about a 3 lb pack.
    3. Add a bag of yellow onions (they’re out of stock at my store, so I can’t put on the list at the moment) — OR, make a note to your shopper to look for onions and to substitute red or sweet if not available.
    4. Change the spinach quantity to two; change the tomatoes quantity to two.
  3. Click “add” on any items you want to place in your cart; omit any items you don’t want or already have.
  4. Add anything else you need for the week to your cart, and check out!

Add your list to Instacart is a newer program, so please use at your own risk and always double check your cart against the recipes. It’s a work in progress! Note: Instacart prices are generally higher than in store, so your total will be higher than shown in the above grocery list.

** Pantry staples to check for before shopping: Olive oil, canola oil, sesame oil, butter, honey, brown sugar, Italian seasoning, oregano, garlic powder, smoked paprika, garlic salt, cumin, chili powder, powdered ginger, crushed red pepper, sea salt, salt, black pepper, cornstarch, baking cocoa, Sriracha or Gochujang or chili garlic sauce

Things to know about these meal plans

A couple of notes

  1. I try not to repeat main dish recipes more often than once a month, but you will see favorite easy recipes again in these weekly ALDI meal plans as the same meats and produce items come up again on sale. Part of the fun of meal planning lies in mixing old stand-bys with something new each week.
  2. If one or more of these recipes isn’t to your taste, or if you have other ingredients to use up, adapt the recipes in this ALDI meal plan to your family’s preferences. Or, just use the ideas here to supplement your own meal planning! See: Pantry staples to stock up on and how to modify a meal plan for your family.

** ad markets & dates

This week’s ALDI meal plan reflects prices from the current week’s ad (running 11/6-11/12 in Sunday ad markets, and 11/9-11/15 in Wednesday ad markets). Non-advertised prices are from my local store in the Chicago suburbs. Prices and produce deals *can vary* by location & region. In either ad market, shop any time through Saturday and start cooking on Sunday 11/13/22.
