Many places held a bit of a Christmas shopping night this past Thursday, with nibblies, bubbles, free gift wrapping, live music, and an atmosphere of happiness. We dropped into a local shop, and then to Aldi to pick up mushrooms for a late pizza dinner.
We are hosting Christmas this year in our delicate nirvana. While in the first shop I had mentioned to The Other Half that I wanted a cheese board. The first shop did not have one, but Aldi had.. well.. something quite unusual.
I rarely buy anything glass but this was quite special and just $24.99.
If you like it maybe drop into your local Aldi – they had a few other awesome things. I wish I’d seen the marble knife set, might have to drop back and grab that.. I get the Aldi catalogue delivered to my email address, so I can always search it to find out what time last year they had certain things I am wanting to get.
The food covers which went on sale Dec 24th 2016 – which we did not need back then but definitely need now – should be placed out in special buys on December 23rd, if they stick to the schedule. I bought some teal ones for my Mother last year. I hope they have teal again this year!
The box has already been repurposed as a Kitty Haven.

I do like that glass cone on top of the cheeseboard. Sigh, our local Aldi has been shut for renos and only reopens this weekend I think. Better get in soon. I’m planning on getting a turducken for Christmas day.
I like those food covers and may drop into my local Aldi next time I’m out that way. We get a catalogue only when whoever delivers them remembers.
