Aldi’s offered some lovely deals including shrimp for $3.69 and White Albacore tuna for $.99 per can, We grabbed several of each. Produce included fresh mushrooms, cabbage, celery, carrots, lettuce blend, red- yellow- and green peppers, cukes, apples and tomatoes on the vine.

A few things I’d like to share : With so many fruit options last week, the kids didn’t even come close to eating it all. Mid-week I made frozen banana bites (dipped in semi-sweet chocolate) and tossed those in the freezer for fast frozen snacks. Since we’d had cantaloupe several times in the last few weeks due to sales, it wasn’t being munched very much for snacks. At the beginning of the week I cut the cantaloupe into chunks and froze half of it for use in smoothies this week.
