We are just one week away from Christmas you guys! Can you believe it? I've been prepping for the Holidays and shopping for presents has been so overwhelming! I've been super busy the past two weeks that I haven't had much time to cook. We all need to make time for family and cooking can be so time consuming during the Holidays!

Today, Savannah and I went to Safeway to grab some groceries and we ended up getting our favorite Red Baron pizza for dinner. Frozen pizza is such a lifesaver especially on Mondays when I haven't had time to prepare a homemade meal. I love pairing my pizza with a healthy side salad and a nice cold Coca-Cola™. nofollow.

My absolute favorite salad to make is a spinach and arugula blend topped with fresh veggies or fruits. Since it's almost Winter, fresh berries are hard to find so I used cucumbers and avocado instead. Savannah is obsessed with avocados!! She loves eating what I eat and I'm so happy that she is not picky. We also love dipping our pizza and salads with dressing! I made a cilantro avocado dip with greek me, it is so good and takes less than 10 minutes to make! I just throw all the ingredients in a blender. Here's the recipe:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 cup of cilantro 
  • 1/2 cup of greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt 
  • dash of cayenne pepper 

This recipe can be adjusted to suit your taste and preference. You can add more olive oil or lemon juice to make the sauce thinner. Since I'm pairing it with pizza, I think this is the perfect consistency. It's nice to take a break from cooking and Red Baron and Coke products go so well together. We found the cutest glass bottled Coca-Cola™ at Safeway...Savannah kept wanting to hold them because they had Santa on the packaging. :)

Now until December 31st, head to your local Safeway, Albertsons, or Vons to get $5 towards a movie ticket with a $10 purchase of participating products in one transaction.  You'll receive a code on the Catalina receipt and will be directed to the Fandango site to redeem the movie ticket reward. Be sure to look out for the signs in store for the offer! Savannah found them pretty quickly! Hope you mamas will get to sit down and relax this Holiday season!
