Quick & Easy Summer Meals #ComidasFaciles #CollectiveBias

Summer is the time to slow down and take things easy, especially with meals. I still have to go to work everyday and when I get home, we like to go outside and enjoy the summer evenings. Last thing on my mind is a complicated meal, quick easy meals are the way to go in our household! We stock up on the basics like bread, cheese, juice, mac and cheese, snacks and just worry about having fun!

We like to shop "in club" at Sam's Club. I love how items are sold in large sizes so it's easy to stock up and make less grocery trips. All our favorites are available and we don't have to worry about running around store to store. 

Time to share an amazing deal!! From now to July 20th, Sam's Club is offering instant savings on the following stock-up favorites:
  • Kool Aid Jammers Variety Pack: 40 pouches, made with real fruit juice and offers 100% daily value of Vitamin C. Currently featured in the Sam's Club Instant Savings Booklet at $1.50 off for a value of $5.03.
  • KRAFT American Singles: Always made with real  milk, individually wrapped, no artificial preservatives or flavors and are an excellent source of calcium. Currently featured in Sam's Club Instant Savings Booklet at $1.75 off for a value of $5.03.
  • KRAFT Easy Mac Cups: Yummy mac and cheese in a convenient cup for an easy meal on the go. Currently featured in the Sam's Club Instant Savings Booklet at $2 off for a value of $7.68.
I bought all three for under $20. Yup, under $20 and I can make wholesome quick meals for our family anytime. A staple in our house on busy summer evenings is a classic grilled cheese. #ComidasFaciles

Classic Grilled Cheese: (makes 1)
assembly & cooking time: 5-6 minutes

2 slices of bread (whichever you prefer)
2 slices of KRAFT american cheese

Butter bottom of pan. Heat on stove at medium-high heat. Lightly butter both sides of bread. Add cheese and place in hot pan. Cook until bottom bread slice is golden brown. Flip sandwich and cook until bottom bread slice is golden brown. Remove from pan and serve. 

Easy Peasy!!!

We have grilled cheese for dinner at least twice a week. They are so good and so easy to make. 

Best thing, in my opinion, about stocking up, is that summer camp lunches have never been easier to pack:

I really do not like to complicate my life, especially in the summer! I like to serve my family balanced, nutritious, easy-to-make meals so we can go back to enjoying basketball practices:

and evening swims!

What are your go-to easy family meals? Are your family members grilled cheese fans like mine are?

  1. I am with you on the quick and easy meals during summer. Who wants to be stuck in the kitchen? I don't! Love me some good grilled cheese. I secretly do breakfast for dinner at least once a week - the kids request it all the time!
