Uhm, can I just tell you, this is the store to shop for inexpensive produce! Do you see those prices? The majority of that stuff would have costs me DOUBLE at Publix or Winn Dixie ...
I've already chopped up one head of lettuce for salads, cleaned 1 container of tomatoes, sliced one package of shrooms (which have already been snacked on and all gone by the Princess boyfriend), cleaned 1 container of strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. Gave away 1 container to blueberries ... and used some of the almond milk for my recipe testing (Cold Brewed Coffee for those of you who are curious ... recipe coming this week and yes, I will be making AGAIN!) ...
And, there you have it ... my grocery trip for the week.
What have YOU bought this week? AND do you shop at Aldi's?
*Yes, I did stop at Whole Foods Friday morning to pick up a container of salad stuff, Tessemaes dressing, a chicken breast, some cold brewed coffee (to compare to my recipe) and, of course, honey crisp apples $22 spent that day but should have been for my lunch that day and a few more days as well*
Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
