Deutsche Küche German breads on the shelf at ALDI for German Week

It’s German Week at ALDI! This one is always fun given that they’re a German company & know how to do it up right, so look for Deutsche Küche everything. More of my favorite ALDI Finds of the week here.

And a quick update on those ALDI mums I got on clearance for $.99 recently: They’re doing great — they just needed a little water and sunlight to grow & bloom. Don’t we all, right? 🙂

But now, on to this week’s ALDI menu plan:

Let me know if you give it a try!

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 9/15-9/21 in Sunday ad markets, and 9/18-9/24 in Wednesday ad markets). Non-advertised prices were collected on 9/17/19 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 9/22/19.
