Here is this weeks Aldi Menu, items are purchased from Aldi unless I indicate otherwise, for instance Aldi doesn’t sell Coconut Oil and that is the only oil we use.
A while ago my Mum (Terry) gave me the Cook Book, Cooking with Aldi, One Family, One Supermarket by Bronwyn Cameron. Its a no frills kinda cook book, easy to use, and pretty much anyone could cook from it. The best thing about the book is all the food items in the book are from Aldi.
I set most of my Main meal Menu plan from this book for the next 2 weeks, I thought that would give me a great start as I kick of this Challange. You can either go buy the book which is only $9.99 or for those just following my Menus I will be posting the recipes also.
I am also going to share what we do for Lunches and Breakfast, Most but not all of which is brought from Aldi.
I will also post my Grocery list, this will make life alot easier when your going to buy the items for the recipes. (yes I am nice doing all the hard work for you!)
This week I am just getting in to the groove of working with a Menu so just cut me some slack, as I work at this I will get faster and things will follow better.
