Aldi Sale Ad Weekly Menu Plan

Does anyone besides me get tired of spending countless hours grocery shopping, cooking, spending lots of money preparing meals!? My friend and I have decided to help all you ladies out. We recently have had an Aldi built close to my house. Before this, the nearest Aldis was about 40 minutes away, and I never took the time to drive that far for groceries. Now that we have a close Aldis I am going to say…This Has Saved Me Lots of MONEY!! Try shopping there and see if it saves you. I would love to hear your feedback, and I hope our weekly menu saves you from the hassle of preparing menus and grocery list. :)

Meal 1: Corned Beef and Cabbage

Slow-Cooker-Corned-Beef-23.jpg

I have not personally cooked Corned Beef and Cabbage before, but I am super excited to try this recipe! The best part is I can cook it in the crockpot!! This is how I prefer to cook, a simple, tasty meal.

I found this recipe on this site…take a look her recipes look amazing!



Ingredients

  • 1 corned beef brisket (3-4lbs)

  • 1 onion

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 2 bay leaves

  • 2.5 - 3 cups water

  • 2 lbs potatoes , peeled & quartered

  • 2 large carrots , chopped

  • 1 small head of cabbage

Instructions

  1. Chop onion into large chunks and place in the bottom of a 6 qt slow cooker. Top with corned beef and seasoning packet.

  2. Pour water into slow cooker until it just about covers the corned beef. Add garlic and bay leaves.

  3. Cook on low 8-10 hours.

  4. After the initial 3 hours, add potatoes and carrots to the slow cooker.

  5. Two hours before serving, add cabbage wedges to the slow cooker.

  6. Remove corned beef from slow cooker and let rest 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with potatoes, carrots and cabbage.

Meal 2: Chicken Thighs

This is an easy meal. I take the chicken thighs (preferably without skin) rinse and put in the crockpot, I add a little chicken broth and any seasoning you like. I usually use garlic powder, salt, and pepper. You can add onion, carrots, potatoes, anything you enjoy and set to cook for a couple of hours. This is a healthy meal my family eats well. I usually serve with any type of rice I have in the pantry.

Meal 3: Spaghetti and Meatballs

I like a few easy to put together meals during the week. I don’t have time to cook an elaborate dinner every night. This is going to be an easy one for me to throw together after baseball practice. The meatballs are on sale this week, so this was a no brainer to add to my list:)

Meal 4: Curry Chicken Salad

This is one that takes a little more time to prep, but you can do it throughout the day when you have time, and it makes for great leftovers.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cut-up cooked chicken

  • 3/4 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise

  • 1/3 cup unpeeled apple, chopped

  • 1/3 cup celery, chopped

  • 1/4 cup seedless raisins

  • 1/2 tsp. curry powder

  • 8 slices whole wheat bread or cinnamon raisin bread, crusts trimmed, if desired

    Method

    • 1 Combine chicken, Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise, apple, celery, raisins and curry powder.

    • 2 Spread evenly on 4 bread slices, then top with remaining bread; cut each into 4 triangles.

    • 3 Garnish, if desired, with thin apple slice.

Meal 5: Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast burritos are also a meal I through into the mix quite a bit. It’s easy, and everyone in the family likes them.

The eggs are on Sale! I then just add some type of meat and cheese along with any kind of vegetables you may like. I usually saute some green onions, and green pepper before cooking the eggs. I then just add cheese and a little salsa.
