So, here we are at week four of our ALDI Meal Challenge, and honestly, what started as an experiment, has helped us develop a very good strategy for meal planning while saving both money and time each week. It also forced my daughter and I to sit down, take inventory of what we had and create a good variety of meal options around that. I would have been happy to simply see a savings in our grocery bill – but to also reduce waste, eat better, save time and ensure my whole family came together at the table every night, are benefits that compound in value exponentially.
This was a new recipe for our family recently. You know how those go. Sometimes putting foods together, in theory, sounds delicious…but the finished product tastes nothing like what you thought it would. This one, however, is not one of those. This one is a winner. Its hearty comfort food, stick to your ribs, make a pig of yourself, delicious. It is now on permanent rotation in our house. Easy to make, inexpensive and full of good stuff.
Are you as excited as I am about week 3 of the Aldi Meal Challenge? Well, you should be – because I know what’s coming and it’s going to knock your socks off.
This week we tried a couple new recipes – which is always an adventure – but I think there are several keepers. All inexpensive, full of flavor and good for you.
But the point of this challenge is the keep the budget under control AND eat well…Let’s see how we did.
