Looking for a practical gift idea this holiday season?
This gift idea inspired by Cooking Light magazine is perfect for siblings, best friends and parents. It also makes a great house warming gift. If you are feeling extra generous this holiday season, give it to a low income family who could use a little extra holiday cheer.
I don't know about you, but I love using my slow cooker over the winter months. I love the smell of hot food wafting through the house, plus I don't have to prepare a last-minute meal, and we can enjoy hot comfort food as a family because it's ready when we are.
What could be better than giving a gift that can be used immediately.
I saw an amazing recipe inside Cooking Light magazine for Hearty Oats & Grains, and coupled with a gorgeous slow cooker that I also saw in the magazine I thought this would make the perfect holiday gift. All I had to do was fill the slow cooker with non-perishable items from Safeway (for the recipe) along with a gift card to purchase any other items needed to make this breakfast amazing. Couldn't you imagine waking up in the morning to the smell of breakfast wafting through the house, hot, and ready to enjoy.
Don't forget to throw in a little extra holiday reading with my favorite magazines Sunset and Real Simple.
Even if you don't buy this for a gift, go and pick up a copy of Cooking Light for the delicious recipe. It's perfect if you have guests staying with you for the holidays. If they are early birds they will have a hot breakfast ready for them to enjoy without you feeling like you need to get up to take care of everyone.
Pick up your own copies of Real Simple, Cooking Light, and Sunset magazines utilizing the $1 off coupon offer found IN select Safeway stores (Safeway, Vons, Randalls, Pavilions, Dominick’s) – where available and while supplies last. (The coupon is on a tear away pad that should be located near the magazines/bookazine.)
