Meal Plan and Shopping List for the Week of January 22, 2018

This week I’m shopping through my pantry and trying to use up some things we already have on hand. As such, some of these recipes will have ingredients you won’t find at Aldi. Most can be substituted out, with the one exception being toasted sesame […]

Aldi Weekly Ad, 1/17/18 – 1/23/18

Aldi has released the weekly ad for the week beginning 1/17/18.   Once again they’re featuring their new lower prices on organic and SimplyNature food items, so as I’d expected these will likely stick around for a bit. It makes keeping that New Year’s resolution […]

Aldi Clearance Finds: 1/15/18

We’ve had tons of snow here (nearly 6 inches now, which is crazy for Tennessee!), and it’s thrown my shopping pattern all out of whack. We had ice and snow on Friday, and by Saturday the roads weren’t cleared so I stayed home. Sunday was […]

Aldi Review: Earth Grown Chickenless Tenders

This week I’m sampling from the new Earth Grown line at Aldi, and first up are the chickenless tenders.     Let’s start with the ingredient list, since I know that’s the main concern for lots of folks. If it isn’t, I strongly encourage you […]

Earth Grown Reviews Are Coming!

Earth Grown Reviews Are Coming!

Normally I would post my meal plan and shopping list for the week on Saturday, but this upcoming week is going to be completely out of sorts and won’t follow our usual routine at all. My oldest is having hip surgery on Tuesday and will […]
