Can you believe the kids are going Back To School already? This will be my Fantastic 4’s first year in public school since they were previously homeschooled for 6 years. It’s such a big change for all of us where I’m pretty sure they are more prepared than I am for this big move. My kids are more than excited to hang out with their new friends they made during last summer’s soccer season. It actually wasn’t too long ago when I was in school and watched my mom handle a full time job and 2 kids in school. What I remember most was how she was able to whip up quick and delicious meals with simple ingredients. Whenever my mom wanted to buy something for us she always thought ahead and bought in bulk from BJ’s.
Now that I am a mom I am now in charge of making all the meals and yay wait for it cleaning up after those meals. Taking after my mom I regularly shop at Bulk Grocery stores like BJ’s. Finding the products you want for a price you and your wallet can agree on is super easy there. Something my family loves which is super easy to make and delicious for my family is spaghetti, and our brand of choice is of course Ragu® Pasta Sauce.
It’s very easy to find in BJ’s, you only need to venture down the Sauce aisle and look for the bright yellow boxes and tops. I usually have my kids keep their eyes out for it since they recognize what it looks like. It also is my hack to keeping the kids entertained while I shop. My daughter’s reaction to finding it every time is “BAM Found It”.
***Fun Fact! Did you know you can use Ragu® Pasta sauce for English Muffin Pizza’s??? Learn how to make this quick and delicious meal HERE***
I’m not sure how I do it either but, I managed to fit all 4 kids inside and outside of the cart perfectly lol. Ragu® offers an assortment of delicious flavors with more than a full serving of veggies in every half-cup of their spaghetti and pasta sauce. Did you know that BJ’s offers 3+ different flavors as well as packs of 3? That means you get 3 family size jar of Ragu® in whatever your families favorite flavor is. We picked up the Meat Flavored sauce since my kids are super picky. I usually get the Traditional Sauce flavor but the kids begged me to switch it up this time. After we find our sauce we venture around the store to pick up our other household necessities like paper towels, toilet paper and trash bags.
Are your kids special like mine where they HATE having meat inside of their spaghetti? They don’t even like meatballs, they seem to only like it with tons of sauce and a splash of noodles. This makes my job a little bit easier I must say. Since we got the Meat Flavored sauce I feel like they were thinking ahead with this and wanting the flavor without all of the chunky meatiness of ground beef. Something I love about these family size jar’s of Ragu® sauce is it fits my family’s preferences AND offers plenty of leftovers. This mom’s savoir on nights where I only have a few minutes to cook one the kids come back from school.
I think we can safely say my kids enjoyed their quick and delicious dinner. To help make leftover’s as exciting as the original meal I will let my kids make their own garlic bread. If you go to any bakery section you can ask for them to sell you some of their garlic spread. Buy some french bread or you can buy my favorite Sourdough bread and then let the kids spread on the garlic. Letting them control the garlic as well as helping put it in the oven is something my kids always look forward to.
