Dinner last night

I bought a pork loin last week at Aldi. I cut it up into nice sized pork chops!! We have enough for four meals for the five of us!!

Last night I baked five pork chops with some onion powder, garlic powder, and Aldi "beef and pork grinder spices". I made a nice sized salad (lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion) and had two various dressings offered. We steamed some green peas, corn, and green beans to serve with our meal.

It was pretty good! We have some veggies left over to have with our meal tonight.

Tonight's meal:

I had chicken drumsticks in the freezer bought on clearance a while ago. Five legs for 2.02 total at Aldi. SCORE!!!! Well, I finished up the last of the Aldi herb and garlic marinade and used it to marinade the chicken drumsticks. They are sitting in the fridge defrosting, soaking up all that good marinade. We will have the last of the steamed veggies from last night, a large salad (tomato, cucumber, onion, pickle, lettuce), and I have some left over "fried rice" from our adventures on Friday evening that needs to be used.


  1. It's hard to find meat on sale. Way to go! I hardly shop at Aldis, one, because I am an early bird and usually do my grocery shopping by 7:30 am on Sundays, and second, Aldis doesn't take coupons (not like I have a whole lot of coupons I ever use). LOL! Looks like I may need to make a trip thru the week to check out Aldis items.

    1. The Aldi we have in Winchester is very nice. I like going there. I find some meat specials or clearance deals, but it's few and far in between. They have ground beef 85% at 2.99 a lb, cheaper than the local stores, and ground turkey for 1.69 lb. The beef is expensive. I can find pork loin for 2.99 lb and slice it myself.
