I haven't been to Aldi's since the beginning of December!!!! I needed a few staple items, and that is what I love to use Aldi's for.....I got 34 items for $31.14.
If you haven't been to Aldi's before you must go....I don't like to get their fresh fruits, I just don't have good experiences with them staying fresh for more than a day or two. I know others have told me that it might just be the Aldi's I shop at because they don't seem to have those issues.
Well over the next couple weeks this is what we are planning to eat..keep in mind it's nothing fancy nor are they very time consuming! I don't mind cooking but it is not something I REALLY enjoy doing I'd rather be doing a host of others things instead.......
Wednesday: Lasagna, garlic bread, green beans
Friday: Date night!!! Texas Roadhouse here I come!! (We got a gift card from x-mas to use)
Saturday: Chilli, crackers
Sunday: Chilli or chilli dogs
Monday: Tacos with all the fixins'
Tuesday: Mexican casserole
Wednesday: Fish, Potatoes, bake beans
Thursday: Potatoe Soup, crackers
Friday: Taco Soup
Sat & Sunday: Leftover Round up!!!
Well I guess you can tell I am in the winter frame of mind I have 3 different soups planned. OH WELL I know my family loves them all.
Like I said nothing fancy and you definitely have to like eating leftovers to survive at my house!! I always try to make my meals big enough to eat for two suppers or at the very least a supper and a lunch. REASON: It eliminates the number of times I have to be in the kitchen cooking each week!
For lunches we.....yes keep it simple also!!
Mac and cheese with hot dogs, fruit
cold meat sandwiches, fish crackers, fruit
Chef Boyardee, fruit
grill cheese sandwiches, fruit
OR yep you guessed it leftovers :)
