Then, we’ll briefly detour over to hang out on a Caturday with the Notorious BKL and Friends — because sometimes you just need some cute animal pix. Lastly, just a little fun and savings over on the Amazon

Six easy dinners from ALDI for $70

pork roast, potatoes, and mushrooms

ALDI Meal Plan — start cooking 7/10/22


  • Start by chopping up your half pork loin: Cut off 2.25 lbs to use as today’s roast, then cut the rest into 8 thin equal-sized chops and reserve for dinners later this week.
  • Garlic rosemary pork roast & potatoes (use white mushrooms, and just 2 of the bigger baking potatoes)
  • Bake House Creations biscuits (reduce heat and pop these into the oven to cook while the pork is resting before slicing)
  • Slice up the strawberries



  • Black bean & potato tacos (this might just be one or a little more than one large baking potato) topped with shredded cheddar, 2 sliced avocados, and chopped Roma tomatoes
  • The rest of the grapes





  • Leftovers, family pizza night (ALDI sells nice big take-and-bake deli pizzas), or order in.

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 7/3-7/9 in Sunday ad markets, and 7/6-7/12 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 7/10/22.
