You may recall that there have been no new meal plans or recipes for the past couple of weeks because… I was busy getting married and going on a little honeymoon to northern California! Did you miss me? Hope that’s a decent excuse. 😉 Anyway, here are a few photos from our trip, including the ever-awesome jellyfish at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and more.

But now that I’m back and we’re starting to get caught up, here’s your simple ALDI meal plan for the week of 8/7/22. And, do be sure to… Sign up for our weekly emails, so that you never miss another one.

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 7/31-8/6 in Sunday ad markets, and 8/3-8/9 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 8/7/22.
