Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy.
Good morning! How is it going today?
Yesterday I shared a recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp! Originally posted in late April 2013 the recipe is perfect if you’re harvesting rhubarb from your yard or you can pick some up at a local Farmer’s market. You may also be able to find frozen rhubarb at your local grocery store.
Thanks to a good friend we picked up a 44 pound box of organic Bartlett pears yesterday for just $25. AMAZING deal. And they are delicious. Tonight we plan to make pear sorbet with the kids and I’m looking for pear recipes – thinking a batch of pear sauce (like apple sauce) might be in order. And I need to pick up some blue cheese – because a pear, blue cheese and candied nut salad sounds like a good dinner idea, don’t you think? What are your favorite pear recipes? Remember I haven’t master canning yet (boo-hoo), so I’m looking for pear recipes that are relatively healthy and preserve the pears. Can you freeze pears?
Did you see all the new grocery deals that rolled out yesterday? QFC sure is impressive with it’s Buy 4, Save $4 sale. If you live near a Kroger-affiliate store, you should have similar deals. The promo is set to run for two weeks!! We’ll add more deals as we find them.
