#myBlogSpark Italian Days – Taste the Tradition event at Publix - February 11th through March 1st

 Enter to win a 25$ Gift Card to Publix below. Ends 3/15.



  Publix is my favorite grocery store!!! Publix has a clean store, friendly employees, great sales, everyday prices and lots of BOGO offers. I love that their deli is fantastic, fresh and fast. They have the biggest organic section of any store I have ever seen that is not a store specializing in organics. They even carry grass fed beef, which I only eat, and no other store local to me has. Impressive.

  I love Publix because they always have fresh (free) coffee, the bathrooms are always immaculately cleaned. Gosh there are so many reasons. My daughter loves them because she can go to the bakery and get a "free cookie". They have brands no one else has, and they even have hard to find varieties that no other stores have. For instance they have some varieties of Campells soup I have never seen at other stores.

  It's easy to get in and out too. If you have a local Publix and don't shop there, your missing out. They can take a boring stressful shopping episode and make it fun! They obviously can't stop your babies from crying, but they take away all of the other stresses that accompany shopping, that is for sure. They have great coupon policies too. I have never been greeted with anything less than fabulous at our local store here in Kingsland. I will choose our store over all the grocery stores in this area, which include a Winn-Dixie, WalMart, Commissary, Harveys...


Italian food is always a huge crowd pleaser. Whether you’re feeding your hungry family or hosting a household of friends, everybody loves the taste of al dente pasta, a rich sauce or a delicious pizza.

At the Italian Days – Taste the Tradition event at Publix® from February 11th through March 1st, you can get great prices and coupon savings* on some of your favorite General Mills brands like Green Giant and Progresso. Plus, get great savings on many ingredients for great Italian recipes like Alfredo pizza and stuffed chicken manicotti.
And that’s not all! During the event shoppers will be able to enter for a chance to be 1 of the 500 shoppers that will win a $100 Publix® gift card! To enter for a chance to win and to download great coupon savings and delicious recipes, look in-store or visit www.clickcallmail.com.**

I used the 25$ gift card they sent me to make 2 dishes!!!
The Italian dish was Italian Sausage Spaghetti. (Double Italian!)
Here's how I make it:
I prefer Angel hair pasta
any Italian sausage will do, but I especially love the polka kielbasa pre-cooked kind.
I use 2 jars of pasta sauce
I cut the sausage in slices and/or dices of varying sizes, some big and some small. I stir it into my sauce on medium, I will add onion, mushroom, bell pepper, and seasonings  usually garlic and parsley or basil. Boil the noodles to desired firmness/softness.
Drain, I like to stir a spoonful of olive oil into the drained noodles before mixing the sauce and noodles together in a big bowl.

 Prep time: 10 min.
Cooking time 20 min.
Total time from start to table: 30 min.

The second recipe I made was  8 ingredient/can chicken taco soup.

I use:
2 cans of diced tomatoes.
3 Chicken legs, boiled, de-boned and pulled. The original recipe I saw called for canned chicken, which I think has a funny texture.
I used 1/2 a jar of salsa, instead of the recommended green enchilada sauce.
1 can Cream of Chicken soup.
1 can of Black beans
1 can of Pinto beans
1 can of whole kernel corn
1 can of chicken broth.
1 package of Taco seasoning.

Instructions? Well mix it all together! Easy peezy lemon squeezy. We used fritos and tostitos scoops to dip and crumble into our soup. It made a huge pot, and we are actually eating it's leftovers tonight!~

Prep Time 5-10 min.
Cook time 20 min.
Total time from start to table 30 min.


You can enter to win a 25$ gift card here on this blog by placing ONE comment (with your email address please) stating desire to win!
The other entries include (in any order)
This giveaway will end on March 15th at NOON Eastern. The winner will receive the exact prize a I received, a 25$ Publix gift card, that you can use to buy anything in the Publix store. Fabulous, no?
