Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – just 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! How was your weekend? We had a good weekend. Saturday ended up being a major cleaning day – we had a lot of deep cleaning to do – especially in our kitchen. It’s officially been a year of staying home full-time and I’ll tell you – cooking 3 meals a day . . . sometimes by a 10- or 13-year-old . . . we had lots of deep cleaning to get caught up on. We worked as a team and tackled wall trim, outlet and light fixture switches, cabinets, drawers, counters, walls, floors. . . and it made such a big difference! I even scrubbed my poor oven with a fine steel wool and cleaning paste – it gets used at least once a day, especially in the winter and it was long over due.

On Sunday I worked out in the shop and priced a whole bunch of vintage items for an upcoming Vintage FB live sale I’ll be having. Tomorrow (Tuesday night) at 6 pm PST, I’ll be live over here with my finds. You can do porch pick-up if you’re local to Olympia. . . or shipping is a flat $7.95 (and also includes items from my boutique, RamonaRose.com)

My sweet little girl got braces on Friday. . . so we’ve been eating a lot of soups and soft foods this weekend. We now have two kids in braces. Eek! Last night I made Pioneer Women’s version of potato soup because it was a last minute request and my kids liked this version! My daughter even had it for breakfast again today and commented about how much she liked it! The vegetables and fresh parsley added a different dimension than my traditional crockpot potato soup.
In general, I like traditional dicing and chopping and food prep (by hand, with a knife). . . but we’ve been making so many soups this winter I’ve been using this Mueller Austria Pro-Series 8 Blade Onion Mincer Chopper, Slicer, Vegetable Chopper, Cutter, Dicer, Vegetable Slicer with Container a lot. . .primarily because it makes the foods so consistently the same size and it’s wicked fast once you get the hang of it. Do you use something similar to this?
