Today's Grocery Shopping

October 20th, 2022 at 04:46 pm

It's my grocery shopping day -- third out of four this month. I spent $29, unintentionally going over my $27 limit. I'll make that up next week. I'll have to count more carefully -- not in my head!

Here's what I got at Aldi for $29:

5 lbs. of potatoes

Flour tortillas

Worcestershire sauce

Hot sauce

Canned crushed pineapple

12 oz. hot dogs

Hot dog buns

Crescent rolls


1 lb. hot Italian pork sausage

1 lb. butter

1 dozen eggs

I didn't intend to get hot sausage! Totally picked up the wrong package. I hope it is not TOO hot.

I bought crescent rolls because the can I had on hand popped in the fridge and turned to cement. What a waste! I'm going to have to check this one every day; can't let that happen again. I like to use up leftovers in homemade "hot pockets" made out of crescent rolls.

I also bought paper plates for $7. That is tracked in a different category.

Possible meals on tap this week:

Hamburger Stroganoff

Mac & Cheese

Cottage Cheese & Pineapple

Sausage Gravy & Biscuits


Hot Dogs

Barbecue Beans & Sausage

Loaded Potatoes


I also have four servings of cannelloni in the freezer. So there's going to be more than enough to eat. Next week I'm going to have to get chicken and ground beef, so that might be the whole order. Oh, and I will have to get creamer next week, too. Can't do without that!

    Wow you did great for $29! Some of those items seem like they would be expensive like the honey and sausage. I think I need to revisit Aldi even though it is a little bit of a drive for me. Might be worth it.

    You did quite well for your money. Sorry about the hot sausage.

    I wonder if you had told the folks at Aldi about the crescent rolls popping open if they would have given you a refund. You would think they would do that.

    It didn't occur to me to tell Aldi about the rolls. It should have! I just tossed them out.

    The sausage is indeed hot, but I used it in sausage gravy & biscuits today, and the dairy & carbs kind of cooled it down.
