I used to be one of those people who went to the grocery store 484,304 times a day. Whether it was for personal groceries, work groceries, or an emergency grocery run because I forgot the most important item of all.

I guess toilet paper just isn’t that important. But thanks to the new partnership ALDI has with Instacart, I haven’t really felt the need to leave home anymore!

If you don’t know what Instacart is, it is a same-day grocery store delivery service app. You can simply grab all of your groceries with the use of your fingers and your phone or laptop. Just type in your ingredient and add to cart. That’s it, guys.

Then a real, live personal shopper gets to work, choosing all your ingredients and delivering them to your door. They even text you if an item on your list isn’t available to suggest substitutions.

You can even schedule out your deliveries if you know you won’t be home by a specific hour. I have even scheduled my groceries delivery as much as one week out so I can have fresh groceries on my doorstep after a week long vacation.

Genius, I know.

And as you can see from my shopping cart above, I had ordered a ton of cheese, fruit and deli meat. Because I really needed to make myself a pretty banging cheese board.

You know I love a good cheese board. And I love it even more with ALDI prices.

I’m paying for so much less, yet, it looks equally fabulous.

I also basically ate the entire board myself during Game Day Sunday. I’m sorry but the prosciutto wrapped melon wedges had my complete attention.

  1. I love Aldi. I often tear up when I get my total. They have saved my family so much money. These cheese boards are so much fun to put together and eat. Thanks for your suggestions. I’ve never had prosciutto wrapped cantaloupe, but I’m willing to try it.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    How fun! My husband and I have been enjoying eating like this. 
    I think we’ll add a tin of smokes oysters and a couple different smoked cheeses (he has been making his own and it’s wonderful) We also bought marinated mozzarella Fresca balls for the first time and they would be a nice addition.

  3. Thank you for sharing this unique recipe.

  4. Hi! LOVE your site and love Aldi! I’m attempting this for a party. Looks like the goat cheese in rolled in some herbs? Maybe? Which did you use?

    Thank you! Happy New Year!

  5. wow! This is pretty and looks pretty dam good too thanks for the awesome idea for christmas

  6. I made an executive decision today that this is going to be the pre-Thanksgiving appetizer while we’re waiting on dinner to cook.

    So. Excited.

  7. Wow, THS looks amazing.  I love everything on this tray.  I know what will be on our island Christmas Evening

  8. HI CHUNGAH!!! I love your food blog!! I follow you on instagram as well!! I love the way you organized everything on the sheet pan. Do you have any suggestions on how to arrange all the items … I feel like it never looks as good as I had hoped … thanks again for any suggestions!!

  9. Hi Chungah,

    Your a lucky girl, having Aldi there.
    When we still live in Holland, we always went to Aldi.
    They have great stuff and even greater prices.
    We’re still waiting till Aldi comes to Thailand.

    we love your food and everything is damned dilicious.

  10. I love olives! Could they be added to this beautiful board?

  11. This is one beautiful cheese and charcuterie board! Pinning this right now! Thanks for posting!

  12. I love that you show a sheet pan as your serving board. Now no excuses for any of us!

  13. Who says a serving dish needs to be fancy?  Heck, it’s about what’s on the plate, not the plate itself.  I LOVE that you used a sheet pan for this, never would have thought of that.  It looks perfect and easy to transport to the party.  Thanks for all your great ideas, whether edible or not.

  14. I just love your appetizer/cheese boards- always looks so beautiful.  This is great inspiration for what I’ll do when family comes for the holidays.  Thanks a million!!
