Olive-Garden-Zuppa-Toscana-Soup-recipe

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.

Crockpot-Pumpkin-Turkey-Chili

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.

Best-Halloween-Candy-Deals

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). :)

Good morning! Today is one of those slow-motion-sorta-days. I woke up with a sore throat and I’m keeping my sweet boy home from school because he’s not feeling well either. I knew he was fighting something last night when he came home from school complaining his legs were tired (this coming from the kid who runs everywhere) and he grabbed his lovey Curious George and camped out on the couch. We have big plans this weekend – including a fall festival tomorrow night – so I’m hoping the restful day will be just what the doctor ordered. I suppose it’s that time of year – and I’m hoping everyone is healthy and well in your home!

Yesterday I hit up my local QFC (Kroger store) and didn’t use even one coupon. Crazy, right? Even my favorite cashier was shocked. :) But I really didn’t buy much packaged food – and nearly everything in my cart was a manager markdown.

  • Two 5-pound bags of red potatoes – $0.99 each (reg. $3.99)
  • Bananas – $0.49/lb (reg. $0.69)
  • Fancy tomatoes on the vine, clamshell – $1.99 (reg. $4.99)
  • Fresh salsa from the deli – $1.49 (reg. $4)
  • Baby bella portabella mushrooms – $2.19 (reg. $3.99)
  • Italian sausage – $2.99 (reg. $5.99)
  • Extra, extra lean ground turkey – $4.29 (reg. $6.99)
  • Marked down pork chops
  • I also found Kroger non-scented dryer sheets $1.49/box (reg. $4.99), method hand soap $1.49 and lots of frozen food markdowns.
  • Grapes – $1.68/lb, no markdown, just sale price?

I came home and used the marked down mushrooms and sausage to whip up some of this Slow Cooker Tortellini soup – but because I didn’t have all day, I made it on the stove top. I cooked the sausage (whole) and sliced mushrooms in a little chicken broth, until they were golden brown. Then I added the rest of the ingredients. I didn’t have tortellini and substituted frozen ravioli, then left out the cheese from the recipe and it was perfect.

Slow-Cooker-Crockpot-Potato-Soup-Recipe

Today I’m going to try a crockpot recipe today for Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana soup! I’m really excited to give it a try. Yesterday I shared this Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup – it’s like having a bowl full of the creamy inside of a twice baked potato. It’s delicious, incredibly filling and very frugal to make.

Good morning! How’s it going today? So yesterday I tried a random slow cooker recipe. I had brussels sprouts in the fridge and bacon. Generally – if you cook the two together, it’s a thing of beauty (see my Brussels Sprouts with Bacon recipe here). So I lined the bottom of the crockpot with uncooked center-cut bacon, tossed in my washed/trimmed brussels sprouts, and turned it to high. I was foolish to think it would be so simple. Not only does my house smell DREADFUL but the result was a vat of greasy cabbage. ;) My husband, at first, thought it was delicious – and had a bowl. He regrets it today. :) So today I’ll be adding a few extra layers of clothing so I can open the windows and air out the nastiness. I took out ground turkey from the freezer last night and will try and come up with a new recipe for today.

Slow-Cooker-Crock-Pot-Ranch-Pork-Chops

Yesterday I did share this recipe for Slow Cooker Ranch Porch Chops. It’s ain’t pretty. I’m not pretending it is. But it is so easy and it really is delicious. I hope you like it as much as our family does.

temporary-tatoo-mustaches

Good morning!  How was your weekend? We had a fun-filled and busy weekend. My son had a little costume party this weekend and went as a Knight in Shining Armor, with a mustache. Ha! I found these temporary tattoo mustaches and it looks so real, it was hilarious. My daughter had a play date with another friend during the party and she wore this cute little fall dress (it has wings in the back). We found both “outfits” at Goodwill last weekend and my kiddos love them. :)

Pumpkin-Patch-Field-Trip-2014

Good morning! How are you doing today? I’m glad it’s Friday! Yesterday was a glorious day – sunshine, sunshine, sunshine and warm temps – making my daughter’s pumpkin patch field trip EVEN more fun. She picked out the perfect pumpkin and was all smiles, all morning. We’ve gone to Schilter’s Family Farm every year since my kids were born – and I adore it! Back in my freelance writing days, I wrote this article for the Washington Farm Bureau, Schilter’s Family Farm: Cultivating pumpkins, Christmas trees and family traditions (PDF). They truly are a family-run business and Jeff and his wife were leading our field trip yesterday. A petting zoo, a hay maze, a hay ride (plus lots more on the weekends) – this place has a lot to offer!

We picked up some BEAUTIFUL pumpkins for our front porch yesterday – at $0.29/lb they are slightly more than the cheapest price I’ve seen (WinCo $0.18/lb) – but it’s going right in the pockets of a local family – and really, on a 15-lb pumpkin that’s just $1.65 more – plus you get the experience of their beautiful farm and family helping you! As frugal as I am, I actually ENJOY paying more for things like this – it really does make a difference, I believe. Do you have a favorite family-run pumpkin patch? 

Pizza-slice-Trader-Joes

Last night we made homemade pizza for dinner, using refrigerated pizza dough from Trader Joe’s! Although I love making my grandma’s homemade pizza dough recipe, the refrigerated pizza dough from Trader joe’s is $1.29 – $1.50 and it is incredibly easy on busy days. Between the field trip, taking the car into the shop (check engine light again!), picking up our Zaycon bacon and blogging – it was a busy day and I was able to pull dinner together in less than 20 minutes (Rachael Ray would have been proud).

Good morning! How’s it going today? I’ve been slowly moving my bedtime up so that I can work toward getting up earlier this winter. As the deals pick up, I like to get things published earlier than normal so that you can take advantage of the best deals. I feel so much more productive waking up early but it can be tricky when I stay up too late! Michael Hyatt, one of my favorite authors, speakers and leadership experts, shared an article “How to Become a Morning Person” and it has some great tips in it! Are you a morning person?

Southwest-Quinoa-Salad

My husband had a potluck today at work, so I made this Southwest Quinoa Salad. Make the quinoa in a rice cooker and this is an incredibly easy recipe to whip up. I really modified it because I didn’t have all the ingredients – I used red quinoa (not regular), left out onion, spinach and feta, used a bag of frozen corn with edamame instead of regular corn and used a red and orange pepper. The dressing is so delicious (in my humble opinion) that you can pretty much toss anything you like into this salad and you can’t go wrong. :)

Good morning! How are you today? Yesterday I make the trek back from Post Falls, Idaho. As I mentioned in yesterday’s Rise and Shine, I spent the weekend over there visiting family. While driving back over, I stopped at Thorp’s fruit stand and was able to pick up boxes of Washington Honey Crisp apples for $12.50 each! Each box has about 23 pounds and they are DELICIOUS. :) Definitely stop in next time you’re driving by on I-90, near Ellensburg.

I’m still waiting to turn it on for the fall, this mild weather means our house has been sitting around 68-70 degrees without the furnace. :)

Costco-Price-List

Yesterday we rolled out a freshly UPDATED Costco Price list! I’m so excited, it now has 850+ items and all are listed with per unit prices. I used it this morning – thinking I found a good deal on rice over on Amazon, I compared the price to Costco, per pound and realized it wasn’t nearly as good of a deal as I thought! The new list has MORE prices, more meat and produce prices and more gluten-free foods. A lot of work went into this list – and I have Stephanie (or Fred Meyer guru) a big thank you for the extensive work she did to update it! Grateful for the amazing people on my team.
