How I Save at Publix + Creamy Alfredo Garlic Chicken Pizza

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of RAGÚ® Pasta Sauce.  All opinions are entirely my own.

There are a lot of things that make me happy, but Thursdays and saving money are two things that are at the top of my list.  I look forward to Thursdays because that is when the new Publix shopping ad comes out and that means new BOGO (buy one get one free) offers!  I get so excited about this and can't wait to create my meal plan and grocery list for the following week.

I have a couple of days to plan it out since I do my grocery shopping on Sunday afternoons.  It's so much fun to see how much money I can save and the deals I can get on some of my favorite products, including RAGÚ® Pasta Sauce, which goes BOGO now through Wednesday, October 11th.   

I love how easy Publix makes it to plan my meals for the week and this week I will be making Creamy Alfredo Garlic Chicken Pizza using RAGÚ Cheese Creations Classic Alfredo Pasta Sauce.  My toddlers can be a bit picky sometimes, but they love this!  It's seriously a big hit in our family.

RAGÚ Cheese Creations Classic Alfredo Pasta Sauce now comes in family size, so I can make an additional pizza to freeze. Mom Win!

What you'll need:

Start with your dough.  Sprinkle flour on a flat surface and roll out your dough.  It's best at room temp.  I love that I can just grab this at my local Publix and it's ready to go!

Mix together the RAGÚ Classic Alfredo Pasta Sauce with parsley and spices.  Spread evenly over the dough.  This makes the perfect white pizza sauce because it is thick, creamy and packed with Parmesan and Romano cheeses full of flavor!  It is made with real cheese and fresh cream.  It can be found on the pasta sauce aisle at Publix and comes in 16 oz. or 21.5 oz family size jars.

Now, my favorite part...adding the toppings.  Sprinkle shredded chicken and cheese over the sauce.  This would also be great with spinach layered on the bottom and I added red onions to the top.  My girls will eat any vegetable if it's baked into a pizza.

{Mom hack --> Cook 3-4 chicken breasts on low in a crock-pot.  Use a hand mixer to shred the chicken when cooked through.  You'll have chicken on hand for easy week day meals or you can freeze for another time!}

Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes!  I'm not going to lie, as soon as I finished taking photos, I inhaled two slices of this pizza in record time.  So good!

"Mommy, it's so Magical" | Disney on Ice Frozen

This post was written in partnership with Feld Entertainment & Disney on Ice. We were provided with complimentary tickets for review. As always, opinions are 100% honest and my own.

My husband and I had the opportunity to take our girls to see Disney on Ice Frozen over the weekend and let me tell you, my girls' reactions were priceless.  I honestly was so busy watching the look on their faces that I'm not sure how much of the show I actually caught.

It started with Mickey, Minnie and Goofy, which our girls loved.  Emma was in awe when all of the princesses came out and Charlotte couldn't quit clapping!  Once Frozen began, Emma didn't move.  Her mouth literally dropped open and stayed that way for a good five minutes! Ha!  She looked at me and said, "Mommy, it's so magical".  My heart melted into a giant puddle right there on the floor.  It was the sweetest moment because it truly was a magical experience!

I was afraid that Charlotte might be too little for the show, but she absolutely loved it.  I can safely say that her favorite part was when the snow monster came out.  She said, "Wow", and couldn't take her eyes off of him.  Emma's was hands down getting to sing "Let it Go" with Queen Elsa.  I'm pretty sure the entire audience, including myself, was singing.  I had so much fun watching them sing and dance throughout the entire show.

It made it even better that they both were able to wear their Elsa and Anna dresses (not that they don't wear them on the daily as it is).  Disney on Ice Frozen is such a magical experience for every little girl and boy.  It's something that I will always remember and hope they do too.
