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. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning! Happy Friday! Yesterday I had slow cooker success and made the most delicious Olive Garden (Copy Cat) Zuppa Toscana soup. It was a big hit and I’ll be sharing the recipe hopefully later today.
As I mentioned yesterday I kept my son home from school because he wasn’t feeling well. He ended up taking a nearly 3-hour nap yesterday afternoon – something that he hasn’t done for a LONG time! Mr. Queen Bee sent me a text around 5 p.m. offering to pick up dinner on the way home – as he knew it would be a busy day with the kids staying home unexpectedly. BUT thanks to the slow cooker – we not only ate at home but it didn’t come out of a box, package or freezer. Gotta love that.
Yesterday I shared this Slow Cooker Turkey Pumpkin Chili. It’s really delicious and you really can’t taste the pumpkin. It’s a fantastic fall dish packed with lots of nutrients from the pumpkin puree.
We continue to update this week’s Best Halloween candy deals with prices at our local stores. We even include Costco and we list the prices per ounce so you can find the BEST price in your area. We do all the hard work – you just need to decide if you’re going to buy candy you like (so you can enjoy leftovers) or candy you don’t like (so you don’t enjoy leftovers).
