My must gets at Aldi

List your top 5 grocery store items.

Today’s prompt
  1. Hard salami – Sometimes I don’t know what I want for lunch. Hard salami is one of the only lunch meats I enjoy eating. So I get hard salami for days. I want to make a snack plate for my lunch.
  2. Creamer – There are only two kinds of creamer that I usually use, which is French Vanilla and Italian Sweet Cream. I went to Kroger the other day. Their name brand was a whole dollar more than Aldi’s brand.
  3. Coffee pods – I love their French vanilla pods. I get 12 for $4, which is great. I use them at work because I have a Keurig in my classroom. During the fall, they had a maple pecan flavor that was phenomenal. My room always smelled great after I drank the coffee.
  4. Cottage cheese – One of my favorite quick breakfasts is cottage cheese and jam. I get both of those at Aldi. I enjoy eating cottage cheese with blueberries, almond slices, and honey for another breakfast. So good and easy.
  5. Blocks of cheese – When I decide not to use shredded cheese, I shred my own. The blocks of cheese are $2. We shred them, make cheese cubes, and use them for grilled cheese. The two kinds I get are Colby jack and sharp cheddar.

Snack plates –

I have included a list of foods I enjoy in my snack plate.

  • Meat or nut butter
    • Hard salami
    • Peanut butter
    • Cashew butter
    • Chicken
    • Tuna
    • Etc . . .
  • Cheese and/or dip
    • I’m not saying you can’t have both. You do you.
    • Use those block cheeses to make cheese cubes, or get fancy and try goat cheese. Aldi has some great ones.
    • Hummus is a great dip. You can buy it or make your own.
    • Salsa
    • Ranch
    • Etc. . .
  • Pickles and/or olives
  • Veggies
    • Cucumber
    • Carrots
    • Mini bell peppers
    • Tomatoes
    • Etc . . .
  • Crackers/ Chips/ Popcorn
    • I eat a gluten-free diet. My favorite crackers are the Farmhouse Cheddar ones from Simple Mills. They remind me of a Cheez-It. I also like the entertainment crackers from Schar. Those remind me of a Ritz.
    • Tortilla chips
    • Skinny Pop is good popcorn.
    • The corn chips from Aldi are just as good as Fritos. Cheaper too.
  • Some sort of sweet. You need to enjoy your food. I love the Albanese gummy bears and sour bears. They are certified gluten-free. I pack a few of those, and my sweet tooth is satisfied.
