Rise and Shine November 9 – Our kid’s make our Thanksgiving menu, Black Friday ad scans, Gymboree FREE shipping, BOB stroller, cold weather gear, gummy vitamins, more

 

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! We so close to the weekend. . .I can’t wait. The kids have a 3-day weekend and we have some fun things planned. Last night the kids “homework” was to come up with our Clarke Family Thanksgiving meal. They selected their favorite appetizers, sides, main dishes and desserts.

They put their initial next to the item if they wanted to be “in charge” of that item. Deciding how we should make it, making a grocery list, and then helping make it.

We started this tradition while we were traveling full time in our travel trailer and had a less traditional meal and I love how it involves them in the process.

Appetizers – Caesar salad and cheese/crackers
Sides – Mashed potatoes and asparagus
Mains – Ham, steak and shrimp
Dessert – Apple pie with ice cream and a cherry on top. 🍒

I think for being 10 and 7 they did a pretty good job. They are really excited. I’ll supplement – like a green bean casserole, a turkey, and my grandma’s amazing rolls! But I love how it gets them excited for our special meal.

Here is a post I did last year with my family’s favorite Thanksgiving recipes! What are some of your favorite holiday recipes? I’d love for you to share your favorites.

Thank you veterans, active duty, military spouses and children, and reservists who serve our country – thank you, thank you! In honor of your service and all that you sacrifice there are many businesses offering free-bees and perks for you on November 11!  Some of the following offers are only for veterans, some are for veterans and active duty personnel. A few are extended to family members of active-duty military. Please read the fine print for each offer and make sure you know what kind of ID they require (i.e., wear uniform, I.D., photo of you in uniform, etc.). Also, watch for which day the offer is good for – most are Saturday, though some are on different days. Finally, it’s a good idea to call the store you plan to visit to make sure they are participating in these offers.

That’s enough to feed eight families of four three meals a day for a whole month.
