Quick Appetizer Ideas and an ALDI Giveaway

This time of year or really any time of year it’s a good idea to have some quick appetizers on hand for when those unexpected visitors drop by. What a simple and quick idea, a nice bottle of PINOT GRIGIO paired with Havarti cheese and a cracker assortment. And don’t forget about the sweettooths, some airy cream puffs will do the trick.

To help you accomplish this ALDI has released its 2011 online holiday catalog, where you can get all the holiday essentials for less, including everything from these appetizers, to main courses, side dishes and desserts.

During the holiday season, ALDI stores also carry an additional line-up of more than 100 seasonal items at unbeatable prices. Be sure to use their Store Locator to find the store nearest you to take advantage of more than 1,400 of the most frequently purchased grocery items for up to 50 percent less than traditional supermarkets.
