Easy Summertime Meals with #GrabGoWow

Easy Summertime Meals with #GrabGoWow



Summertime, and the living is easy! Unless you have kids, of course. Then you’re just as busy as ever!


The lazy days of Summer no longer exist for me. As my four kids grew and changed, our lifestyle changed with them. Sports and activities started to sneak their way into the Summer months, and my kids want to do things now, instead of hanging out at home all day. Although I long for the lazier days that once were, those days are no longer feasible!

I’ve learned to embrace the busyness, and go with the flow. One day, in the not too distant future, I will have my lazy Summer days, and I’m certain I will be wishing back every single moment of the chaos! The thing about time is there is no stopping it. The Summer months fly by, and the years fly by even quicker.

Despite my acceptance of the busyness of Summer, it can still be overwhelming at times. Add in all the Summer picnics and parties to our already chaotic schedule, and I am one tired mama!


Although I have the best intentions to create delicious recipes for the picnics we attend, my attempt always fails. I have the most Pinterest-ing recipes at my fingertips, but I either forget to pick up an ingredient, or I simply run out of time. Most of the time, I’m the hot mess of a mom showing up at a picnic with a container of store-bought cookies or store-bought drinks.

Thankfully, Walmart can help me out now with their new Grab Go Wow program, featuring Kraft-Heinz products! You can access the easy recipes online, head to your local Walmart store to purchase the popular Kraft-Heinz products that you probably already buy at the great Walmart prices, then quickly whip up the delicious recipes at home.

This is a fantastic new approach to meal planning! The recipes are PERFECT for any Summer picnic or party, or even your weekly family meal plan. I am open to any idea that saves me time (and money), so I was thrilled to hop on the Grab. Go. Wow. bandwagon! It truly is “Meal Planning Made Easy.”

With the 4th of July just a few weeks away, I wanted to try out a few recipes that I looked like crowd-pleasers. #GrabGoWow was the perfect place to start!


I visited the website, saved my list of ingredients, then headed to my local Walmart to purchase the items. I quickly found everything I needed! Every item was in stock and priced lower than other stores in my area.

The recipes I chose did not disappoint! The directions were very easy to follow. My 10 year old daughter, Lexie, who loves to cook, did most of the work. Five year old Lily even stepped in to assist. Most important, both recipes were a hit with my entire family. I can’t wait to try more #GrabGoWow recipes!

Here’s some inspiration for your next Summer picnic:

Wave Your Flag Cheesecake was quick (and fun) to make! (Who doesn’t love licking the spoons and the bowls?) My kids just wanted to decorate the cake and dig in! The end result was absolutely perfect for any patriotic holiday, and so tasty that my family already requested that it be made again soon!
