Things to know about the ALDI 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 come up 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, you can 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 and dates

This week’s ALDI meal plan reflects prices from the current week’s ad (running 5/6-5/12 in Sunday ad markets, and 5/9-5/15 in Wednesday ad markets). Non-advertised prices were collected on 5/9/18 at my local store in the Chicago suburbs, but non-advertised prices and produce deals *may vary* by location & region. In either ad market, shop any time through Saturday and start cooking on Sunday 5/13/18.

I just wanted to say thank you SO much for making these meal plans! I have used them the past two weeks and they have saved me time and money. All of the recipes have been delicious, too! We especially enjoyed the frittata and the pork naan pizzas.

So glad that they have been useful! Frittatas are such a great way to sneak in veggies. :)

I don't stay current on these meal plans. This this week I have fixed the black bean and corn salsa turkey burgers and the sheet pan Parmesan chicken. They were both absolutely wonderful. My picky 8 year old even at them both...of course, I didn't tell her that they were black bean and corn salsa burgers. LOL! Thank you so much for the effort you put into making these meal plans every week. I know this busy mama sure appreciates it!!

Good call! Don't ask, don't tell sometimes works well when trying new things -- and I'm so glad that that plans have been useful to you.
