Publix has another one of thier awesome promotions coming up called "The Best Meals Happen at Home." Some of my best family memories are the meals that we prepared and ate together. Today it can be hard to get a homecooked meal on the table with all that we have to do. A fast meal does not have to mean fast food or frozen meals. That's what Publix's Best Meals Happen at Home is all about. Fast, Easy, Delicious food you can make at home in 30 min or less!

So what fun things can you find as part of "the Best Meals Happen at Home" event?
