Try Me Tuesday – Publix Yellow Rice

mahatma publux rice

Welcome to this week’s Try Me Tuesday. Each week I will grab a new set of products and test them out. I’ll put the Publix brand up against a national brand product and report back.

I know many times I struggle with what brand to choose. Often a sale or a coupon/sale combination make that an easier decision…but what about those times when you need an item and there is not a sale? Do you grab the house brand or pay more and get the national brand? More importantly, is there really a difference in taste?

I was so tired of cookies and snacks I chose the item this week. I opted to try the Publix Yellow Rice. As you can see I picked up the bags while the Mahatma was on sale so I am listing the regular price in the comparison below

RESULTS

  • Publix -2
  • Mahatma – 2

Well guys as you can see above – it was a tie this week. The rices were so very close in taste that it was really just a matter of personal preference.

In my opinion, the Publix version might have had slightly less seasoning than the Mahatma but in all honesty – I’d happily eat either brand!

So this week we are going to declare the Publix the winner as it is a better price. It’s almost half the price of the national brand.

Have you guys tried these? Do you have a favorite?

Easy Calzones

Easy Calzones

With the BOGO sale on pizza dough I wanted to remind you that there are dinner options besides pizza! Why not whip up an Easy Calzone for dinner?

The great thing about a Calzone is that you can customize them for each person in your family. At my house, we all like totally different things. When it comes time for dinner I take requests and build each calzone to specifically for each person.

You can also make the calzones in different sizes. So for my boys, I only need a quarter of a dough ball but I use a half dough ball for the adult versions. That means that I have to buy two dough balls. So I end up with one extra calzone that turns into yummy leftovers.

Now all of my guys prefer their calzone with “sauce in” but I like to make mine without sauce and then just dip it in the a bowl of sauce after it’s cooked. That way I control how much sauce I get per bite.

This recipe is part of the Publix Menu – Week Of 9/25. Here are the other recipes that I have shared so far –

Serves: 2

Ingredients
  • Pre-made pizza dough ball (try this recipe)
  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Variety of topping such as: spinach, pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, feta, sun dried tomatoes, etc

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400º F.
  2. Cut the dough ball in half and roll out to a large 12″ circle.
  3. Place sauce (if desired) and toppings on half of the circle leaving a ½ inch border.
  4. Fold the other side of the dough over lining up the edges.
  5. Gently push and crimp the edges to seal the calzone.
  6. Place on a parchment lined sheet pan or pizza stone and cook for 15 – 18 minutes or until the top of the crust is golden brown.
  7. Repeat the process with the 2nd dough ball.
