Thread Details

The PUBLIX thread is IMHO the best grocery store thread around heart
Here's a little chat area for us all to share info, recipes, rant's, raves and whatever else we want without clogging up the regular weekly deals thread for PUBLIX. If we want to share super deals we find in other stores or whatnot that's ok too heart

I think we all are such a great family that it's a good to have our own special place Grouphug


You can post basically anything you like in here but let's keep deals info in the actual PUBLIX thread. All are welcome and basically no major rules except be kind and courteous of other's and treat each other with respect. Other than that let's all have some fun! Also you don't have to shop at PUBLIX to share in the chat or whatnot... we like everyone.

I'll start it off...
Today I made a wonderful lunch compliments of really cheap stuff from PUBLIX.
I used 1 package of the Knorr Thai Noodles (roughly .50c) and simmered it in the College Inn Coconut Curry Chicken Stock, mixed in 1 package of the Asian Medley Birdseye Steamfresh, Squeezed a little lime juice, cilantro and a sprinkle of soy sauce & powdered ginger and finished it off with some Contessa shrimp that were tossed in the Franks Sweet Chili Sauce. It was just as good as Thai Takeout!
Oh also I stirred a tablespoon of the Honey Nut Crunch Peter Pan in the noodles when I was cooking it. It gave them more of the peanut flavor.

Sometimes it's fun to chit chat about nothing...

I'm irritated that I over slept today and didn't get more 10 off 20 Kohl's Q's Sadwalk

When I was looking for papers I even walked into a Sweet Bay EEK!
I haven't been in one of those forever! I figured noone who coupon shops would go to Sweet Bay anyways so they probably have tons of papers I could buy with the Q"s on front. Guess I was wrong though Frown

Thanks for the advice - appreciate it (will rep when I can again)! I know I've been spoiled by the deals on SD, but I have to keep telling myself that sometimes just a BOGO can be worth it!

If I can avoid buying extra food storage, I definitely will, but I'm probably most nervous about the turkey. Our fridge door opens into the kitchen wall (we're renters - I never would have designed the kitchen that way) and even if we take the side shelves out, I'm not sure we'd fit a turkey. And to buy frozen would mean dedicating like 1/3 of the freezer to stand it up in there I bet. This may be the temporary insanity talking, but maybe I need to buy a turkey the morning of?

To make things more complicated, DH brews beer and wants to make a special match for Thanksgiving - unfortunately those bottles have to stay refridgerated AND have to stay upright. laugh out loud It's definitely going to be a game of Refridgerator Tetris!
This is what I would suggest. It involves brining a turkey and using a cooler. You can also defrost it in the cooler. We have done this especially when traveling long distances and spending the holidays with family. It will avoid the needless headache of making room in your freezer/frig if the buy the turkey the day before. Plus this recipe tastes great.

Do turkeys need to thaw in the fridge or can it stay on the counter?
For food safety issues you need to thaw at a temperature that is at least what a fridge would be. Honestly, I have a really small fridge (painfully small for 6 people) and I still manage to get a turkey in there. We actually have gotten fully cooked smoked turkeys a few times, and those things are FANTASTIC. And, yeah, I know we get lots of deals on Turkey...but the inlaws always seem to want to buy it to make it 'easy' anyhow.

I would say start buying things now. Every time I tell myself I'll wait until another sale or coupon, it never happens. And, personally, I'd rather start checking stuff off the list so there's less to deal with by the time all your personal space gets invaded laugh out loud
OMG, I can't believe it's so close!!! OMG I've never gotten used to the seemingly non-changing seasons down here so it doesn't feel like we're approaching fall to me! I definitely agree, if you're going to plan everything out, write things out and start now. I'm guessing some people are going to also want to bring a few dishes (I hope so, don't do everything yourself Wink like I do usually).

You can see why I don't cook- I'll inadvertantly kill people by keeping the stupid turkey on the counter. Sigh.

As soon as September hit, I was ready for all the fall stuff. I was dying to have Target put out Halloween and all the fall/harvest stuff.

Well, you're smart...if you needed to thaw a turkey you'd likely read the label, read up online or ask someone with experience. All of us had to be taught somewhere, if our parents didn't teach us we either have to get buy everything fully cooked and reheat or depend on others to cook. Or even better....learn to cook. It's never too late! nod

My mom never cooked, so I never picked up anything substantial about it. I can bake a mean cheesecake, but that's about it laugh out loud

Speaking of cheesecake, I am dying to make these http://www.skinnytaste.com/2011/0...ogurt.html
