Ziploc® brand Space Bag® – Triple Your Storage Space & Save Big At Publix!

July 31, 2014 


space bag publix Ziploc® brand Space Bag®   Triple Your Storage Space & Save Big At Publix!Have you loaded and used your Publix digital coupon for the Ziploc® brand Space Bag® yet?

A while back I told you guys how much I love Ziploc® brand Space Bags®. Since sharing the coupon, I have had several folks email amazed at how great these bags work. I really wasn’t kidding when I told you guys that I loved these bags, I depend on them for my storage needs constantly.

I am always finding ways to put them to use – so whenever I can get a discount, I take advantage of it. I had a couple of folks ask which size I used most. Honestly I go for the larger bags. I like the combo packs as they offer a variety of sizes. I like to be able to store as much as possible so I tend to use the larger bags more often. Now, I think having a few of the smaller bags is important too.

I tend to use them for times when I need a bag away from home. Most often I use them when I need a change of clothes for the boys. Days we are at the water park, after baseball games, etc. The bag allows me to pack more in a smaller area that will fit in my bag AND they stay dry!

With the kids going back to school soon, these would be perfect for kids headed off to college. With the size of dorm living, these bags will allow them to triple their storage space. Plus, they offer protection so that all their belongings stay safe and protected.

ziploc space bags Ziploc® brand Space Bag®   Triple Your Storage Space & Save Big At Publix!The vacuum seal bag design is perfect for storing soft, bulky items like blankets, comforters, pillows, sweaters and winter coats. The bags form an airtight, watertight seal to keep your items clean and safe – protecting against bugs, moths, dirt, moisture, allergens, mildew and odors. That’s very important to me, since I store many of my items in an unfinished storage area in my basement. I don’t monitor that storage area like I might a closet, so I want to be sure that the items I have tucked away stay protected.

What’s great is that the bags are so simple to use – you just need your vacuum. The bag’s one-way air valves work with any vacuum that has a hose attachment. Simply attach the hose, flip on your vacuum and in no time the air is pulled out and you are left with bag that allows you to store up to three times as much in a given area. This is important in my world as there never seems to be enough space to store everything at my house.

Don’t forget about seasonal storage. My holiday linens are safe in the Ziploc® brand Space Bag® and I can easily move them in and out as I need them. Plus, they are great for holding all your clothes that you may not use day to day. You can easily swap out your summer and/or winter items when they are not in use, and save that much-needed closet space!


In addition to the vacuum-seal bag design that I use at home, there are also roll-up storage bags for when I travel. These are super simple as you remove the air by simply rolling up the bag – allowing you to pack up to twice as much. Surely I am not the only one who ends up coming home with more than I left with. That extra space sure does come in handy!

For you guys who plan to do any flying this summer, these little bags can also save you a pretty penny! Space savings can mean money savings when families travel since the airlines like to charge extra for each suitcase you bring. In addition, the bags are transparent, which makes for speedy airport security checks.

I just used them on my trip to Virginia. I got everything in my carry on with room to spare…which worked out nicely since I had to bring the boys back some souvenirs.

The bags come in a variety of sizes so be sure to check them out. I think you guys will love them as much as I do.

Crispy Sweet Chili Shrimp

July 31, 2014 

Crispy Sweet Chili Shrimp Crispy Sweet Chili ShrimpI love Asian food for so many reasons. Often the recipes are very quick and simple to put together. That means you spend less time in the kitchen…which is a good thing in my book. Plus, you get such a punch of flavor with that effort – that makes it a winner in my book.

I have been making this recipe for a while. At my house we call it sweet & sour shrimp but that is completely inaccurate.  If you have tried my Sweet & Sour Meatballs - that has the sauce that you guys would recognize as a traditional sweet and sour sauce. Now, I have done that particular sauce with my crispy fried shrimp…but here at my house, the recipe I am sharing today is the preferred sauce with the shrimp.

So last night I was trying to come up with a name. I went round and round and even had my husband helping me. Let’s just say…I probably won’t have him help again. He comes up with the weirdest ideas– tee hee. Now, I probably didn’t do much better but Crispy Sweet Chili Shrimp is a much more accurate description of what this dish is all about.

First you have that delicious crispy shrimp then it’s tossed in a sauce that is sweet and sticky with a slight amount of heat. Don’t be scared of the heat…it comes from chili paste which adds more flavor than it does heat. You get just enough to make it super tasty!

If you have any fear that your little ones will not be able to eat this one just do what I do…serve them the crispy shrimp without the sauce. I have one that will not touch the sauce and the other thinks it is amazing. I generally pull out a handful of shrimp before I toss them in the sauce so I know the boys will eat without grumping.

While the shrimp hikes the price up a bit, the fact that the ingredient list is short evens out the final cost.  Give this one a try, I think you’ll love it!

This recipe is part of the Publix Menu Plan For The Week Of 7/31. Here are the other recipes that I have shared so far -

shrimp ingred Crispy Sweet Chili Shrimp
Author:
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon corn starch, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of oil + oil for frying
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon roasted red chili paste
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 2 -3 green onions, sliced
Instructions
  1. Mix the flour with 1 cup of corn starch and salt and pepper and place in a large bowl or zip top bag.
  2. Dip the shrimp in the flour mixture and shake to remove any excess breading.
  3. Next, dip the shrimp in the beaten egg then return the shrimp to the flour mixture for a second time.
  4. Be sure to shake off any excess breading.
  5. Add about a cup of oil in a large pan or wok and heat over medium high heat.
  6. Once the oil is hot cook the battered shrimp for 2 -3 minutes per side until golden brown and remove to a paper lined plate - I generally cook the shrimp in 2 batches so I don't over crowd the pan.
  7. Dump the oil and wipe your pan then add 2 teaspoons of oil to the pan and heat it to medium low.
  8. Cook the garlic and ginger for about a minute.
  9. Add the soy sauce, lemon juice, chili paste and brown sugar to the pan and whisk until combined.
  10. Mix the water and 1 tablespoon of corn starch then add to the pan.
  11. Cook for about 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
  12. Toss the shrimp in the sauce.
  13. Serve over rice and top with sliced green onions

Pick up some of the Medium White Shrimp, Easy to Peel, Previously Frozen, Farmed, 41 to 50 per pound, $9.99/lb at Publix and grab some items from your pantry and put the whole meal together for much less than you’d spend at your local Chinese restaurant!
