Aldi Sales Ad weekly Menu Plan

I hope everyone is having a great week! Hopefully, this menu planning is helping everyone plan their week and staying more organized while saving money!

The Mediterranean food on their sales ad makes me so excited!!

Meal 1: Mediterranean Sea Bass Fillets with Mediterranean Bean Salad

The Mediterranean Sea Bass is already ready and frozen at Aldis, just have to go pick it up:)

Mediterranean Bean Salad (this is a great side, or you can fix it as a meal, its also great as leftovers)

1 or 2-15 ounce can of black beans

1/4 cup of kalamata olives halved pit free

1/4 cup black or green olives (whichever you prefer)

1/2 of a small red onion

1 cup cherry tomatoes halved

1 green pepper chopped

1/2 to a full english cucumber (depending on how much cucumber you want)

For the dressing:

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tbl red wine vinegar

1 lemon, juiced

2 garlic cloves, mined

Instructions

Slow Cooker Instructions

  1. Add uncut chicken to the bottom of a 6 qt. slow cooker, followed by vegetables. Add all of the remaining ingredients except for the tortellini. Give the top ingredients a stir. Cover and cook on low heat 6 - 7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours OR just until the chicken is tender enough to shred and the vegetables are tender.

  2. Remove chicken to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, add tortellini to the slow cooker (turn to high heat if on low) and cook approximate 15 minutes. (DON'T add tortellini if you are not serving immediately, rather wait 15 minutes before you are going to serve).

  3. Shred chicken and and add back to slow cooker with tortellini. Tortellini should be about cooked by this time. When tortellini is completely cooked, taste and add additional salt and pepper if desired (I like quite a bit more salt). For a less chunky soup, add additional chicken broth. Serve warm.

Stove Top Instructions

  1. Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a large Dutch oven or stock pot over medium high heat. Once hot, add onions and cook 3 minutes. Add carrots, celery and garlic and cook an additional one minute.

  2. Add chicken and all remaining ingredients EXCEPT tortellini and simmer until chicken is cooked through and tender, approximately 20-25 minutes.

  3. Remove chicken to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes then shred.

  4. Meanwhile, if your veggies aren’t fork tender, then continue to simmer the soup. Once tender, add tortellini and simmer just until tender, about 3-5 minutes. (DON'T add tortellini if you are not serving immediately, rather wait 5 minutes before you are going to serve to add and simmer).

  5. Taste and add additional salt and pepper if desired (I like quite a bit more salt). For a less chunky soup, add additional chicken broth. Serve warm.

Meal 5: Leftovers :))

Hopefully this meal plan helps save some time and money:) Enjoy!
