Happy almost-December, with a reminder on our ALDI Meal Plans: After almost seven years of weekly meal planning, they are now more intermittent and irregular. BUT, never fear, because here are some foods, Finds, and fun to tide you over. Read on for some Almost All ALDI recipe ideas using this week’s special buys, easy access to older meal plans, and an update on this week’s best new ALDI Finds.
ALDI meal ideas this week
Let’s start off with recipes, which of course you can always supplement by *** browsing through YEARS of ALDI Meal Plans here ***! If you’re searching for a specific older plan or want to browse through a specific month of plans from years gone by, though, the easiest way to do that is by using Google.
For instance, try searching up:
Search for something like “mashup mom aldi meal plan november 2022” — or, pick your own fave month of yore, which will bring up a list of all of the meal plans from that month. Then, how about some timely recipe ideas for your dinners this week?
