Why I bought produce at Publix

Love Publix?  Then enter to win a $25 Publix gift card!

This week at Publix was not all that exciting for me.  I bought pasta and sauce, yogurt, more of the new Kraft products, and produce.

What?  I never buy produce at Publix.  It's very expensive there, and the prices at ALDI and Western Beef are much better.  But this week, I had a $2 off produce coupon that I wanted to use.  So I picked out some of the sale-priced produce items.  I'm really happy to have some fresh herbs in the house - I'll be making Tabbouleh with the parsley and Cilantro Pesto with the cilantro.

Here's what I got:

Way to work that produce coupon. Actually was going to do the same with the produce coupon since those herbs freeze well. Nice work as always.

I was so disappointed that we did not get this coupon here....

I have cilantro growing in my small yard, and I love being able to cook with fresh herbs.
