I’ll be completely honest and just say I’ve not been cooking near as much as I’d like to lately. It has been a busy few weeks and I guess I would call it a busy season in life, though I’m sure it’s going to get more busy as the kiddos get older. I’ve got to work on my balancing act, that’s for sure 😉
I will get things at the store that I think I’m going to prepare as a full meal and then we end up eating parts and pieces of it here and there. I will also say, while Knox & Sloane have definitely improved on branching out and eating more, they still aren’t quite on the same page as eating exactly what Brent and I prefer to eat.
And then there is me, who is gluten free. Ah, that rhymes, and while it sounds sweet, it’s not always too fun.
In general, we don’t really do much fast food or fried food. Sometimes I go through phases where I want everything in the kitchen organic and gluten free and sometimes I find a pretty good balance or what is better known as reality 😉
I don’t make it to Walmart all too often right now as it’s not as close to my house as a few other stores, but I was excited to find out that Walmart and Coca-Cola have come together to make meal time a bit more convenient for busy households with “Effortless Meals.” It’s a variety of meal options which include sandwiches, read-to-serve rotisserie chicken and take ‘n bake pizza.
Not only are there some great quick options for dinner, but for lunches and snacks, too. I kind of had a hay day when I went in, ha! Most of this, with the exception of just a few items are all of the Marketside brand, which is Walmart’s brand. The total was only around $44.
There is definitely enough fruit to last the week and several other meals and snacks. I typically do enchiladas with rotisserie chicken.
The kids had these for a snack this afternoon.
I did pizza, broccoli, carrots & almonds for dinner, with ranch dressing of course, ha! Sloane loves it. Knox does not.
When I got my big camera out, they started being hams, of course. I’ve not done a picture overload in a while 😉 Knox really wanted his monkey to eat the grapes and they love making apply smiley faces.
