    We are thrilled to bring you our this ALDI Meal plan! The first freezer cooking plan was so popular that we decided to bring you another one!

    We listened to your feedback and made the following improvements:

    • Many said that the last one took longer than the 3 hours, so we made sure that this one can be done by one person in 3 hours. Using the gluten-free modifications, it took me 2 and half hours with NO help from Mark (and he’s the one familiar with all the recipes).
    • Many of you wanted more beef – so we have more beef in this one!
    • Instructions are SUPER detailed and should help you make quick work of these 20 meals.
    • Gluten-free adaptable!
    • Shorter shopping list – you can be in and out of the store in no time! In fact there are 2 shopping lists – a standard one, and a gluten-free one.
    • You do NOT need to go out and buy a new freezer to do this! In our standard side-by-side freezer, these meals took up less than half of the space (see the pic at the bottom of the post).
    • We have a physical book available!

    All of the meals in this plan will be easily assembled and placed into freezer bags (with the exception of the chicken enchiladas).  Then when the day is ready for it to be cooked, you will defrost in the morning or the night before, then either put in the slow cooker or sauté on your stove top.

    I had one problem with the last freezer cooking one – I could only eat half of the meals because I eat gluten-free.  I made this plan easier to adapt to gluten-free, so I provided an asterisk next to eat item containing gluten – and they are VERY easy to substitute. ALDI has an amazing liveGFree gluten-free line, so we took that into account when we were designing this new plan. There are only four ingredients that you will need to swap out for the ALDI gluten-free version. The price will be a little more if you adapt it to be gluten-free, but it will be well worth it!

    These recipes will feed 4 – 6 people. We have 4 small children and all of these meals feed us just fine.
