Hi MARYANN O;
 GRANA  here;
 $.493 is our regular price for ( green) bananas other  placescharge 29 cents each (per banana)  ( about $.59 # we get marked down (ripe bananas @ $.29 # but not often enough.WhenI do I  we buy a lot [ 2+#]  & I bake  banana cake for a treat. or hubby makes banana splits; taking advantage of a good sale...
Bananas can be so pricey that the ice cream stand will giveyou abanana split for $.50 ifyou supply your own banana
Money mouth

I love "my" Aldi's!  You got lucky on the bananas.  I had the same sort of luck with avocado's a week or two ago got them for .49 each.
I was at one of my other local stores and checked out the reduced produce rack and got a bag of the little mini peppers.  A variety of red, yellow and orange peppers.  It was marked down to $1.00. I was looking for peppers for pasta sauce so I got it. One in the package was soft. Used most for my sauce and had a few with some hummus and will nibble on the others later.

gale-------------did you know that you can freeze bananas?---------i peel them and put them in bags for the amt needed in recipes i make------------when thawed they look really nasty---slimy----------but the banana bread/muffins etc you make are much more flavorful-------you could get another 10#'s------because you bake with bananas a lot

Went shopping late Thr. Saw 14 oz creme brulee coated whole almonds on sale buy 1 get 1 free ($ 5.99 each so 2 for $5.99) exp. dates of Sept & Dec. so I decided to buy 4, but store just had 3 & I asked about the cinnamon ones (they rang up at $ 5.99 for 1, but the manager said I could take the 1 cinnamon for the B1G1F).  $23.96 reg. price on sale for $11.98 (for 3 & 1/2# flavored coated almonds). The store was busy & the manager happened to ring me up, we were both surprised when the creme brulee ones rang up at $1.99 each & not B1G1F, so I ended up paying $7.96 for for the 3 & 1/2#s. I decided to open a bag while typing this (big mistake, they are good  ). I "might" get brave & try to dodge the raindrops & first Fri. of the month payday crowd & go back & get a raincheck.
Kroger had a great deal on their 12oz (16 individual wrapped cheese slices) 10 packs for $10.00. I like the pepper jack, & hubby likes to use the swiss along with the good swiss (the singles melt better) & the 3 cheese blend is good to mix with shredded cheese for melting, I planned on buying 6, but since the exp. dates were Feb. I bought 10 (last time I bought them on sale they were 3 for $5.00). Another nice bargain was finding a gallon GLASS jar of baby dills for 40% off (exp. 2014). I have an old glass gallon jar I like to use for pickled eggs & I had another one that  I used to marinate kabobs in, but lost the lid. Now I can marinate in the old one this summer (the whole skewer fits in & laying the jar on its side, I can keep rotating it without using too much marinade).

When you thaw the bananas place them in a colander or sieve to let them drain a bit.  It gets rid of some of the water that will not add much flavor.  The result is a more concentrated banana flavor.  I  also sometimes will sauté the bananas to get rid of a lot of the moisture.  It makes a much richer banana flavor

I think soup is good anytime.  Homemade seems better in the winter because a large pot is cooking on the stove & the house is closed up & you can smell it.  When it is hot, a cup of soup & a salad hits the spot. 
The rare times that one can do the weekly shopping & come under budget should be celebrated Laughing, nothing big, maybe some candy, ice cream, couple fake flowers from the dollar store to brighten up your day.
