Simple Lettuce-Wrapped Chicken Fajitas Recipe

ChickenFajitasbanner

Simple Lettuce-Wrapped Chicken Fajitas - delicious, easy, and good-for-you! #recipe #fredmeyerNow that the New Year is here, is eating healthier on your mind? If so, I’ve got a healthy – and delicious recipe to share with you today! And, you’ll save money when you recreate this recipe using Simple Truth ingredients.

Simple Truth Products at Fred MeyerSimple Truth is the Kroger Family of Store’s in-house natural and organic brand! While you’ll find these products throughout your Fred Meyer store, the greatest concentration is located in the produce and meat departments, as well as the Nutrition Center. I love Simple Truth products for two reasons: first, I feel that the brand is absolutely comparable to name brand counterparts, and second, Simple Truth foods tend to be easy on the budget! On almost every shopping trip I make, at least one or two Simple Truth items are often to be found in my cart (and sometimes more!). If you care about eating natural and/or organic foods, choosing Simple Truth label is one sure-fire way you can save money.

Today I wanted to highlight a number of the Simple Truth ingredients I found at my Fred Meyer store in an easy and delicious recipe. I came up with Lettuce-Wrapped Chicken Fajitas. These are light, healthy, and full of flavor!

Fresh VegetablesHere’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 package Simple Truth Natural Chicken Breast (about 1 lb)
  • 1/3 cup Simple Truth olive oil
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, plus more for serving
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 bell peppers (green, red, yellow, and/or orange), thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • Simple Truth Tomatilla Salsa
  • Simple Truth Romaine Hearts
  • Simple Truth Grape Tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Simple Truth Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, to serve (optional)

This recipe will make 4 servings.

Lime Squeeze

 

Start by preparing your marinade. Squeeze the juice of one lime into a small bowl. Whisk in the olive oil, cumin, garlic, cilantro and salt and pepper.

Fred Meyer: Crazy Toy Closeout Deals – Save up to 70% on Baby Alive, Little Mommy + More!

homecoupon

I’m working up a recipe post for Fred Meyer this week, and of course, I had to browse around the store to see what else I could find. This is a particularly good time of year to watch for discounts in the toy department. So that’s where I zeroed in today! Many people love watching for Target’s 70% off Toy Clearance sale, but I much prefer Fred Meyer’s discounts this time of year. They tend to be on better, name-brand toys and often the discounts are just as awesome. I found a few toys today priced 70% off with stacked coupon offers.

homecoupon

Worth noting, there is a 10% off Home Extra Bonus coupon found in the ad that’s good through this Saturday (1/17/15). You can use this on the toy department (it just won’t work on Priceblaster, Lego Toys, and clearance). If you don’t have an ad, you can pick one up at your Customer Service department, or the kiosks that they keep in the front of the store.

Here are some of the hot deals I found today:

Wish Granted: Gifts for Children During Financially Difficult Year

ornament

A few weeks ago, I asked you a question: how would a Fred Meyer gift card help make your holiday wish come true this year? I received many wonderful submissions and am now pleased to share with you the wishes that have been granted. I’ve been sharing these daily on my blog (please scroll to the bottom for links to any you stories might have missed).

One wish that particularly touched me was an email I received from Kim. Here is the message I received from her:

Dear Angela,

My name is Kim and I am a mother of 2 and I am writing to you in hopes of getting my Christmas wish granted for my children. I wish that I could have a present under the tree for them but I’m struggling to even pay my bills right now, because I was in a rear end collision on September 30th and injured my neck and back and normally I work 2 jobs, but I have not been able to work since the accident. My husband only works a part time job and I’d barely able to keep us afloat we even had to get help paying for a rent the last 2 months because of our financial struggle, and I am going to physical therapy 3 times a week so I can get back to work unfortunately I will only have 1 to go back to because 1 has let me go since they don’t know how long I will not be able work.

My children are well aware of the Christmas is not about presents what about Christ I’m grateful that my children appreciate the even the smallest things that they get. I myself  don’t expect anything for Christmas I just wish my children could have something for Christmas because for me it’s about them, not myself. On top of this, my 66 year old mother found out she has an aneurysm and they want to do surgery in 3 weeks because it would be too dangerous to wait any longer, she lives in a broken-down motor home, and we invited her over to have Thanksgiving with us. Her birthday is on the 22nd of December she wants to have the surgery before her birthday she is at high risk of the aneurysm rupturing even during surgery so right now we have a lot of stress for the holidays. So I’m hoping that kindness will find its way and grant us a Christmas wish. Thank you have a Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Dear Kim, it sounds that you have been through so much this year – particularly recently with both your auto accident and then learning about your mother’s health. Your heart for your children really came through. I am pleased to have sent you a $50 Fred Meyer Gift Card and hope that it will make things brighter tomorrow morning in your household. I wish you the very best in 2015.

Wish Granted: Gifts for Daughter Struggling with new Breast Cancer Diagnosis

A few weeks ago, I asked you a question: how would a Fred Meyer gift card help make your holiday wish come true this year? I received many wonderful submissions and am now pleased to share with you the wishes that have been granted. I’ve been sharing these daily on my blog (please scroll to the bottom for links to any you stories might have missed).

One wish that particularly touched me was an email I received from Sherry. Here is the message I received from her:

I would like to submit for my daughter Jen who was diagnosed with breast cancer in October of this year.  She is going through 4 months of chemo and is unable to work but 2 or 3 hours a day for only two weeks of the month.  Her family includes her husband and 6 year old daughter.

Jen started having moles removed from her body about 5 years ago, and the Dr. said they could be cancer.  In fact three of them were melanoma.  In total she has had 40 moles removed, and will have 2 more removed when she has her double mastectomy in the spring. She has fought that battle, now fighting this battle.  I think she is a warrior!!  She is only 42.

With the reduced income they tell me they don’t “want anything for Christmas”, but a gift card to a grocery store would be great.  So a wonderful gift card would help them during this terrible time in their lives. Thank you for considering my daughter and her family.

jen2

Dear Sherry,

My heart goes out to you and your family during this Christmas season. I can only imagine how difficult it must be, watching your daughter go through this. On behalf of Fred Meyer, I am pleased to have sent you a $50 Fred Meyer gift card. I hope that in some small way, it will bless your daughter and her family this Christmas and help them enjoy the holiday.

– Angela

PS, upon hearing that Sherry was a winner, she responded:

I’m so happy you selected Jen as someone who needs hope during this time.  As her Mother, I only want the very best, and as you said this is an extremely challenging time for all of them.

Wish Granted: Gifts for 2-Year Old Girl with Leukemia

A few weeks ago, I asked you a question: how would a Fred Meyer gift card help make your holiday wish come true this year? I received many wonderful submissions and am now pleased to share with you the wishes that have been granted. I’ve been sharing these daily on my blog (please scroll to the bottom for links to any you stories might have missed).

One wish that particularly touched me was an email I received from Nancy, about a special little girl. Here is the message I received from her:

Would you please consider my grand niece, Addy for a gift card? She is an adorable 2 year old spitfire who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia this summer. She is getting treatment at <<name removed>> Children’s hospital. She is currently in isolation and has been for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and will also be there for Christmas, which means no visitors. Her mother has had to quit her job to be with her, so finances are a little tight right now. Addy loves anything Minnie Mouse, and her brother Jerry loves Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Thanks for your consideration, Nancy

Nancy,

I am pleased we were able to send you a $50 Fred Meyer Gift Card this year to make Addy’s Christmas a bit more bright! I can only imagine how difficult this holiday season has been being away from the people and places she loves most. I hope that Addy will make a complete recovery! I hope that some of the gift card can be used to buy her something extra special, as well as a gift or two for her brother as well, who has undoubtedly experienced a hard time through this as well. With thoughts and prayers for Addy and your family,

Angela

I received many wonderful submissions and am now pleased to share with you the wishes that have been granted. I’ve been sharing these daily on my blog (please scroll to the bottom for links to any you stories might have missed).

One wish that particularly touched me was from Arien. Here is the letter I recived from her:

I would like to win the Holiday Wishes contest for my family. As a large, hardworking, yet low-income family, providing a Christmas for our five children is incredibly challenging. We would be exceptionally grateful for any assistance in making our Christmas a magical one for our children, ages 15, 12, 6, 4, and 3.  We haven’t been able to get a tree yet, that would probable be first on our list! My Holiday Wish this year, is that we are somehow able to create a magical Christmas for our children and that the happy memories of it will last a lifetime, regardless of how much, or little, is under the tree.

**********

Dear Arien:

I believe that you are a hard-working family, just as you’ve stated. I know that sometimes the money just doesn’t stretch as far as you want for “extras” like Christmas. When you particularly mentioned your number one goal would likely top your list, I really wanted to extend you a $50 Fred Meyer Gift Card!

DSCN3973 (539x800)

I found fresh cut trees for just $16.99 at my store a couple weeks ago. I’m hoping you were able to find a similar deal with your card! DSCN3974 (599x800)

 

I also noticed that lots of trimming such as ornaments and tinsel were priced 50% off too. And always remember to look for extra bonus coupons and Savings Certificates you can use on top of the sale.

I sincerely hope that the $50 Fred Meyer Gift card was able to make your Christmas a little brighter this year!

***************

After notifying Arien that her family had been selected, I received this sweet response:

Wow! Thank you so much, I can’t even begin to tell you how much we appreciate this! Honestly, I never imagined we’d be chosen, and what a wonderful surprise it was! ….
Again, we just can’t thank you enough, this is such a blessing to us, our own little Christmas miracle!
Thank you, bless you, and Merry Christmas!

Wish Granted: Teacher Requests Books, Coats for Students

ornament

ornament

A few weeks ago, I asked you a question: how would a Fred Meyer gift card help make your holiday wish come true this year? I received many wonderful submissions and am now pleased to share with you the wishes that have been granted. I’ve been sharing these daily on my blog (please scroll to the bottom for links to any you stories might have missed).

While I received many wishes, none quite touched me the way that this email from a 5th grade teacher did. She asked that I keep her name – and those of her students anonymous. I completely want to honor her request today. With that, here’s the letter I received:

Dear Angela,

I am a 5th grade teacher at a local elementary school and we just finished our parent teacher conferences last week.  As a teacher, you learn that the holidays mean different things to different families.  For some, it’s a wonderful time of year that they are really able to enjoy and celebrate.  For others, it’s a stressful time where it’s another year where their children’s wishes won’t be granted.  From talking with my families, I have a few special wishes that would really help some of my students have a special holiday.

One of my students loves to read and I learned last week that she doesn’t own any books.  She used to have a large collection of books that she treasured, but they had to go into storage when they moved here.  When her mom didn’t have the money to pay for the storage unit, they lost the storage unit and all of her books.  My student would LOVE to be able to buy some new books to call her own.  The winter break can be long for some students and a collection of new books would help her enjoy the holiday break.  Being able to buy some new books would mean so much to her.

I have another family in my class that is also in a difficult place right now.  Mom is a single mom of twins and she’s out of work and waiting for unemployment to kick in, as she recently lost her job.  Her daughter is in my class and desperately wants an umbrella (she walks to school).  The mom would also love to be able to fill her son’s prescription as she recently lost her insurance and is in the process of getting her kids on the Oregon Health Plan.  In the meantime, that’s an important need for the family.

I can’t send you any pictures or more specific information due to confidentiality, but I would love to be able to bless these families this holiday season.

Thank you for considering making a difference in their lives,

A 5th Grade Teacher

**********************

Dear “Teacher,”

It’s clear your heart is for your students, and your email was so touching! I love that you’ve taken the time to really get to know your students and their families. What an impact you must have in their lives!

I’m so pleased to extend to you a $100 Fred Meyer Gift Card, so you can buy some books for the student who lost hers and an umbrella for the girl in your class who walks to school. I’m hoping that you’ll have money left over after that, that you can continue to just jump in and help out as you see fit.

Thank you for all that you do for these kids – and others. We need teachers – and people – like you in this world.

Wish Granted: Help for a Daughter’s Challenging Year

DSCN3963 (800x600)

A few weeks ago, I asked you a question: how would a Fred Meyer gift card help make your holiday wish come true this year? I received many wonderful submissions and am now pleased to share with you the wishes that have been granted. I’ll be sharing one a day, for the next 10 days. I hope these stories touch you, as much as they touched me.

Today I would like to share a wish that’s been granted for a mother who’s daughter had had a challenging year. Here’s the email I received from Lynn:

kaydencesnowma

My holiday wish is for my adult daughter and two year granddaughter. This past year has been very challenging for them. My daughter has been without an income since July. She hasn’t asked for any help from myself nor the state. She is a single mom of a 2 year old daughter who isn’t able to make ends meet right now. Her former fiancee and boyfriend of over five years was in an accident last year. The accident has left him unable to financially help either. If I were to win for them, I would wish for a winter coat and interview outfit for my daughter, and a snowsuit and a doll for my granddaughter. Attached is a picture of my daughter, Jamie with her daughter, Kaydence.

Dear Lynn,

There were two things that stood out to me about the request you sent for your daughter. First, that she is trying to make ends meet on her own; she hasn’t asked for any help. Second, I love that your request was for basic things! The interview outfit sounds like a lovely idea. I’m pleased to extend to you a $50 Fred Meyer Gift Card on behalf of Fred Meyer.

I would love to give you a few quick ideas, to help stretch those dollars further.

First off, keep your eyes peeled for great sales on outerwear this month at Fred Meyer! Last week, I spotted girls’ winter coats at 60%. You could use an Apparel Extra Bonus coupon on top of this sale. This week, there is a 15% off coupon you can use. DSCN3985 (600x800)

I also noticed lots of beautiful women’s clothing up to 60% off clearance last week! Now clearance is definitely going to vary in selection and pricing, but I bet you’d be able to find something suitable without having to spend a fortune. (You might also want to read my post on Fred Meyer Makeover on a Budget for additional tips about saving in apparel.)

Finally, keep your eyes peeled for deals on dolls and other toys at Fred Meyer. These past couple weekends, we’ve seen a number of special sales – and some of these yield top discounts in toys. As always, make sure to use any applicable Home & Toy coupon that becomes available to save even more.

Best wishes to you & your daughter, Lynn!

Check out today’s Coupon Countdown at Fred Meyer. You can print a coupon good for $3 off your purchase of $5 or more of specialty cheese. The fine print reads that there is a limit of one – but that is it! At my local Fred Meyer store, I frequently spot specialty cheese marked 50% off in a special basket. Remember though, Coupon Countdown coupons are only good for the day they are issued. This means, you will need to make a trip to the store today (Wednesday, December 17th) to get it.

Here’s how to get this deal:

  • Head to Fred Meyer’s Coupon Countdown Page and enter your email address.
  • Print out the coupon and redeem today by 10 pm.
  • That’s it!

Wish Granted: Giving Blankets to the Homeless

homecoupon

A couple weeks ago, I asked you a question: how would a Fred Meyer gift card help make your holiday wish come true this year? I received many wonderful submissions and am now pleased to share with you the wishes that have been granted. I’ll be sharing one a day, for the next 10 days. I hope these stories touch you, as much as they touched me.

Today I would like to share a wish that’s been granted for a college-age gal that is planning on helping the homeless on her Winter Break this year. Here’s the email I received from Kaia:

DSCN3871 (600x800)

It’s cold outside and the holidays are approaching! A few friends and I are planning a trip to the Tacoma mission over our break. We plan on handing out blankets so that they can stay warm too. A gift card to Fred Meyer would be a huge help in allowing us to be able to hand out more than just a few blankets (because, let’s face it, we are broke college kids).

We don’t have a set number of blankets that we want to hand out, but the more people that we can bless, the better! We want to do this because we want people to know that there are people that care for them despite their circumstances. We can’t imagine how lonely this time in their life might be. We don’t know their circumstances, or where they’ve been, or why they are in the situation that they are in; but what we do know is that they are God’s children and they deserve to be loved. People are always so quick to judge others that are in need, “they need a job, they can work just like we can.” But we don’t know, maybe that can’t work, maybe they’ve just had bad luck and they’re in a season of their life where things are falling apart. We don’t know their story but we can be a light in the darkness. My heart breaks for those who are alone and cold during this holiday season, and if I can bless them, that’s what I will do! Serving others doesn’t just bless them, it blesses me. When I see that smile on their face because they know that someone cares.

Happy Holidays :)

Dear Kaia:

I was so touched by your email and request, and I’m pleased to extend to you a $50 Fred Meyer Gift Card so you can give back to the homeless this holiday season!

While I can’t guarantee you’ll find this deal right now, I thought you might be interested to see that I found throws for $4.99 recently at my Fred Meyer store. A deal like this would help your Fred Meyer Gift Card buy even more blankets.

I also want to let you know that this week, there is a 10% off Home Extra Bonus Coupon in the store ad. This coupon can be used towards the purchase of warm blankets. Make sure to use it!

Thank you for giving back this holiday season!

Fred Meyer: $2 Butter Coupon (good today only)

buttercoupon

buttercoupon

Butter is definitely one of those food items I’ve seen an increased price on this year. In years past, Fred Meyer has issued store coupons for butter at 3 for $5. I’ve not seen that price this year and my new “stock-up” price for this holiday season has been $2.50.

If you’re feeling the pinch and looking for a deal to make all your holiday treats – check out today’s Coupon Countdown at Fred Meyer. You can print a coupon good for 2 lb butter for $2 (limit 2)! That’s the best price I’ve noted this holiday season! Remember though, Coupon Countdown coupons are only good for the day they are issued. This means, you will need to make a trip to the store today (Monday, December 15th) to get it.

Here’s how to get this deal:

  • Head to Fred Meyer’s Coupon Countdown Page and enter your email address.
  • Print out the coupon and redeem today by 10 pm.
  • That’s it!

If you’re planning on making a trip, make sure to check out these other in-progress deals for the week.
