I have 3 kids still at home, which means that we are constantly going somewhere. Even though we find ourselves so busy, coming together for at least one meal a day is a top priority for me. Sitting down and eating together bonds your family together. You nourish your bodies, minds and souls by sharing food and conversation. We find out about our days, ask trivia questions and discuss upcoming plans. It is my favorite part of the day.
Dinnertime is when we usually have our meal together. That means that some days it is a little difficult to get a meal on the table. Recently I discovered a great way to feed the family a good meal while on the go. This worked well for us on our roadtrips this summer and it is serving us well as the school year has started and we have activities most nights.
While walking into Walmart, I noticed several signs around the deli area featuring “Effortless Meals”. This was a perfect solution for easy on the go meals ideas. I discovered that they have delicious Marketside Rotisserie chicken, Marketside Pizza and Marketside Deli sandwiches. They also have delicious sides and bottles of coke all in the same area. This means that you can pop into the Walmart deli, grab your meal and head on out, whether it is home or to another activity. I was very interested to try these meals because it gives me fresh and healthy options for dinner on a busy night.
I keep supplies on hand in the van such has paper plates, cups, forks and napkins, so when I need a quick dinner that will not be served at home I have what I need. They stay in my handy-dandy red bag.
I have found an easy way to feed my family with the Rotisserie chicken away from home. The Rotisserie Chicken Effortless meal includes a fully cooked rotisserie chicken, a side and a 2L Coke product. For my meal I purchased.
-1 Rotesserie Chicken
-1 container potato salad
-1 bag of rolls
-1 package ready to eat carrots
-1 package ready to eat apple slices
-other in season fruit
-1 bottle of Coke
With these easy ingredients I can pull together a meal at a picnic table, at ball practice, at a rest stop along the interstate, wherever we need to eat at the time. It has become my favorite on the go meal. We serve up pieces of the succulent rotisserie chicken and everyone serves themselves the sides they want.
On busy days when I am at home a Effortless Pizza meal (which includes a Marketside Pizza and a 2L Coke product) is perfect. The pizza is fresh and hot from the oven in less than 20 minutes.
I like to buy a pepperoni pizza and then dress up half of it with diced bell peppers for my husband and me to enjoy. That way the kids can have pizza they like and we can have the version we like. It is all super simple and delicious.
This Saturday, after a fun day of hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains, it was wonderful to come home and be able to throw together a delicious, hot meal that everyone enjoyed in just a few minutes.
