As much as I love this season, every year fall shows me just how much more challenging it is to find quality time with my kids than summer. Between the rush of breakfast and packing lunches in the morning and activities, sports and homework after school, when does that leave to just hang out and enjoy each other?
For us, it is mainly during family dinnertime. No phones, no television, no bickering (hopefully), just time spent chatting about our day and eating a tasty meal. I'll admit, however, that the planning, prep, cooking and cleaning before and after dinner usually ends up taking far more time than I wish it did in an otherwise already-busy day. But what's the alternative?
It is the convenience and dependability found now that Coca-Cola and Walmart have come together to create Effortless Meals that families love!
With a variety of affordable meal options available – take ‘n bake pizza, flavorful sandwiches and ready-to-serve rotisserie chicken – these Effortless Meals result in less time working in the kitchen and more time connecting as a family (while still providing a delicious meal). Yes, please!
These Effortless Meals couldn't be much easier and I love that there are so many options available to suit everyone's tastes and preferences.
Simply visit your local Walmart Supercenter (you're doing that anyway, right?)...
...and it only takes a few steps in the door before you are popping one or more Effortless Meal options into your cart.
Rotisserie chicken fans in your household? Then you'll want to start with the 29 oz chicken, a 2 lb side of potato salad, macaroni salad or cole slaw and a 2-liter of your favorite Coca-Cola product!
Or maybe sandwiches are more of a hit? Then pick up a Sandwich Meal for each member of your family that includes one of six varieties of 6" sub sandwich, a bag of Kettle potato chips and a 16-oz Coca-Cola!
As for us, we're a pizza family. How can you go wrong with pizza? Especially when it is a fresh Marketside pizza, size extra large, that only requires me opening the package and tossing it into the oven and pairing it with our favorite Coca-Cola product!
Talk about an easy, convenient way to have dinner on the table in a snap so that you can spend more time with your family and less time cooking!
But along with the delicious taste, great value and time-saving aspects of these Effortless Meals, there's one more reason to pick one up today: My Coke Rewards!
If you aren't a My Coke Rewards member, then you've been missing out on all sorts of offers, sweepstakes, rewards and more that are easily acquired just by drinking Coca-Cola products and entering in the codes that are found under their caps or on their packaging.
If you are a My Coke Rewards member, however, then you'll love that picking up an Effortless Meal for your family can unlock bonus points to help you get just a little closer to your next prize!
As the fall season becomes even more hectic, make sure to spend quality time with your family whenever you can... and let Coca-Cola and Walmart make that more convenient with their variety of Effortless Meal options! Which meal would you like to bring home first?
