Safeway: Make Your Holidays Even Happier (And Tastier) + Reindeer Cupcakes Recipe

The holidays are upon us.. are you ready for it? 

These past few days had been nonstop busy for me preparing for the holidays.  My husband and I just had our company Christmas party last night (which him and and I hosted) and it turned out really great!  I’m glad that was over. Now  I can finish up my Christmas shopping and start planning on dishes to make for our yearly family holiday dinner party. Good thing, Safeway has given me a lot of helpful ideas to make the task of putting our holiday dinner together easier and more affordable! 

I really do love shopping at my local Safeway grocery store. I love that I can just do one stop and get just about anything I need for our family meals and more in one place! 
Safeway has all the holiday essentials at great prices! From a wide assortment of turkeys (including fresh, natural, frozen and organic), fun and innovative baking items and every type of wine, Safeway has them all!
I love that I can also go online and check out their Holiday Weekly Specials page before I head out to the store or decide what to get, or check my Safeway phone App to see the current coupons or deals, or even track my gas rewards!  And with my Safeway Club Card, I save even more money while shopping for everyday food essentials!
I am excited about some of the holiday recipes from Safeway!  I’m thinking of making this mouth-watering recipe for BACON AND SMOKED MOZZARELLA HAM.. yummm! 

I love this Reindeer Cupcakes recipe that I’ll be making with my kids this weekend. So fun and festive! 🙂
