Serra Fleece Lined Leggings, Crofton Pizza Pans, and SimplyNature Organic Lentils: My Favorite ALDI Finds This Week!
What’s your favorite ALDI Find this week? I couldn’t decide, so let’s talk about three favorite ALDI Finds this week, shall we? 🙂
(OK, I’ll be talking mostly about these leggings, but the pizza pan and lentils deserve at least an honorable mention.)
A Serra Fleece Lined Leggings Review
In preparation for this week’s weather, my last favorite ALDI Find was a pair of Serra ultra soft socks. Today let’s continue that Polar Vortex theme (and vaguely reprise last week’s photo, even…) with my review of this week’s Serra fleece lined leggings. These run $7.99, and were available in maroon, black, or black with little hearts at my store.
I of course went with basic black, and currently wearing my pair under jeans inside my drafty, drafty house on the coldest Chicago area day I can remember. I’m extra thankful for them right now, and yes, there is cat hair stuck to my sock above. They’re being extra cuddly today, the little opportunists!
But look how lovely the fleece is on these. Fleece lined leggings of course run a little bulkier than typical leggings, so my advice is that if you are also going to wear yours under jeans, choose your oldest, loosest, most worn in comfortable pair.
These seem to be good quality leggings, and are nicely thick and warm for a lovely Chicago winter. My two small quibbles are that they seem to run a little short (I’m 5’3″ and they are hitting above the ankle on me), and that they need a slightly higher rise, especially in the back.
Oh and as a total aside: These are the first size medium leggings I have purchased in probably 20 years! I’ve been noticing all of my size large yoga leggings getting a little loose on me, and am now solidly into size 10 jeans, so went for it. These. Fit. Perfectly!

Crofton Pizza Pan
If you often buy the big take-and-bake deli pizzas at ALDI, you know that they can be difficult to get in and out of the oven. Well, check this out: A 16″ Crofton pizza pan for $3.99, to aid you in that process and crisp up that crust nicely! I actually picked up one of these last year on the same limited time sale.
Note: These pizzas are on sale for $4.99 this week for our big game Sunday — and if you don’t pick up a pizza pan, another way to deal with them is to rip the bottom of the box off and use it to slide the finished pizza onto when taking it out of the oven.
SimplyNature Organic Lentils
Our last ALDI Find of the week is these 16 oz bags of SimplyNature organic lentils for $2.29. I really have no idea why lentils are seasonal at ALDI, but, they are — so, stock up while you can! I like to use mine in recipes like this slow cooker lentil & smoked sausage soup.
