* A confession - I technically cheated on my ALDI-only challenge. My husband bought steaks from Sam's Club and I had a bite or two at dinner last night. I don't think he's in the spirit of the challenge yet? I have yet to find him a steak that is as thick of a cut as Sam's Club or our local meat shop.
