January finally ended! I’m ready for spring, personally.
Aldi had a lot of Valentine’s Day goodies in last week’s ad and I am sure some might still be in the stores but not a lot Valentine’s Day content this week so I hope you are prepared!
Produce: Grape tomatoes (organic) are $1.99/pint which isn’t a bad price. Out of season cherry/grape tomatoes are normally a better bet than slicing tomatoes. Oddly, plums, nectarines, and peaches are on sale for 99¢/lb but I can’t imagine they are very good. If you try them, let me know! More seasonally appropriate mandarin oranges (cuties) are on sale for $2.79/3 lb bag. The first of the Florida strawberries are in for only $1.49/lb so they are worth checking out.
Meat/Seafood: 2 4-oz (frozen) lobster tails for $12.99 and $12.99/lb filet mignon for the at home surf and turf of your dreams. $6.99/10 oz gets you a fresh salmon and zoodles primavera, something I haven’t seen before and quite a bit cheaper than other take and heat supermarket options, for $6.99 you can also get a pork roast kit.
Frozen foods: Don’t get the sushi. $4.99 will get you a real simple roll somewhere. Chicken and pork potstickers are $2.99 which is a solid price, especially if you do not have a Korean, Thai, Filipino etc grocery near you with a better selection, there is some frozen takeout Chinese options if that is your thing for $5 and under.
“International” home goods this week, bamboo utensils for $3.99, if you don’t have a spider and like to fry or make dumplings, now is your chance to get one, a $14.99 rice cooker, $12.99 wok and a $12.99 teppanyaki grill round out your best bets.
Various flowers both cut and potted are on sale starting on the 11th.
