Shopping Paleo at Aldi + the Weekly Menu

I was trying to keep it simple and get everything at Aldi for this week (along with some beef, milk, and eggs from the farm).  Aldi was having some specials that I decided to take advantage of to get a couple gluten free convenience items to have on hand for packing meals.  I spent $73 on the following-

  • gf chicken nuggets
  • raw cheese
  • gf chips
  • fruit leather
  • cream cheese
  • bananas
  • grapefruit
  • pineapple
  • yellow onions
  • chicken breasts
  • grape tomatoes
  • bell peppers
  • ground turkey
  • sweet potatoes
  • canned salmon
  • sirloin
  • apples
  • diced tomatoes
  • ro-tel
  • tomato sauce
  • peas
  • green beans
  • broccoli
  • california veggie mix
  • carrots
  • zucchini
  • cottage cheese
Of course I forgot/couldn't find a few things - or we ate them already! :) - so I need to go back early this week and get-
  • romain lettuce
  • clementines
  • bananas
  • ground turkey
  • sweet potatoes
  • marinara sauce
And now the menu plan....

coffee, raw milk

five spice beef kabobs
sun butter apple sandwiches
cottage cheese
gf chips & raw cheese

Monday - taco salad
Tuesday - meat sauce over zucchini spaghetti
Thursday - chicken nuggets & veggies w/ homemade ranch dip
Friday - salmon burgers & sweet potatoes
Saturday - shepherd's pie (w/ sweet potatoes) my directions found here
Sunday - korean beef & broccoli

Yikes, that seems like a lot of cooking.  I plan to do it all in the evenings, though.  I guess it is not really so bad to cook once a day and eat 3 times, huh?  {insert whiney voice: "OMG, you mean I have to spend time COOKING my FOOD?!..."}  It is so ridiculous that we would even dare to complain about that, right?  I will mention it no more :)

Have a good week!

P.S. I added a few pages to my blog, tabbed at the top.  Mostly just categories of stuff I've already posted.
