Rise and Shine May 8 – Tomato Avocado salad, FREE 8×10, Clinique bonus time, Crayola sale


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! TGIF sweet friends! How are you doing? Glad it’s Friday? I am! Do you have any fun plans? I’d love to hear about them!

I don’t know what’s going on with my sweet boy – but he woke up yesterday again with an upset stomach. Glad I kept him home from school another day – he was in the bathroom most of it. He stayed home Tuesday for the same thing and I’m keeping him home again today since he was still sick last night. Hoping it passes quickly, I hate seeing the little guy under the weather.


I threw all this into the crockpot yesterday morning for slow cooker quinoa chili and I’m glad I did. My handsome husband had parent/teacher conferences until late last night and with a sick kid at home – this was an easy solution for dinner! I left out the chicken and used red quinoa instead of regular – since that’s what we had.


I also had some tomatoes and avocados that needed to be used up – so I made this Tomato, Avocado Lime salad yesterday for lunch. It turned out awesome. I think it would make a good relish for a burger or a salsa, too.


For those of you with Safeway stores, don’t miss this HOT promotion on gift cards. Patrice shared with me how you can get a $50 JC Penney card for $30, after e-coupon and promo – makes it as low as $30 out of pocket. Plus there is a $10 off $25 JCP coupon and a $5 iBotta offer when you spend $25 at JCP. It’s like a quadruple DIP deal – which is a RARE event these days. 🙂 Let me know if you’re able to get it!
