ALDI Meal Planning week of 11/27/22 – 12/3/22

Note: I’m writing this one up early because I have family in town for the holiday, so it’s using more generic prices — since the ad for Weds. is not yet out, and post-Thanksgiving prices may change. As always, prices can vary by store and region.

Pick up everything on the shopping list below, then start cooking on Sunday. As always, six complete dinners for four, $70 out the door.

  • *** Print your meal plan summary + grocery shopping list below this week’s detailed plan, in Word, .rtf, or PDF format. ***
  • I’m assuming that you have on hand some pantry basics like cooking oil, condiments, and spices. Read through the recipes before you shop, to make sure that you have the necessary pantry staples on hand for this week’s ALDI menu plan. *** The printable shopping list includes a separate section of needed basics for the week.

*** 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. So: Before adding the list to your cart, change the following
    1. Change the avocados quantity to two, and the bananas quantity to four.
    2. Change the chicken broth quantity to two.
    3. Make a note to your shopper that you want a six lb pack of drumsticks, and that you want a two lb pack of chicken breast.
  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!

Please use the add your list to Instacart feature at your own risk, always double checking your cart against the recipes. It’s a work in progress! Also note that 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, honey, oregano, Italian seasoning, rosemary, thyme, parsley, smoked paprika, crushed red pepper, bay leaves, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, Kosher salt, sea salt, black pepper

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 11/20-11/26 in Sunday ad markets, and 11/23-11/29 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 11/27/22.
