Walmart Holiday Meals...

With the current economy a lot of people are struggling this holiday season. Some are cutting back on gifts, others are cutting back on traveling, but Walmart wants to make sure what you don’t have to cut back on is those great holiday Family dinners this Christmas.

The economy impacts at least 80% of people’s holiday plans and right now everyone is looking for the best ‘bang’ for their buck. Enjoying holiday meals with families is one of the most important things of the holiday and with the majority of people planning to entertain 7 or more people, Walmart’s fresh and affordable holiday meals help those entertaining eliminate at least part of the stress associated with holiday entertaining.

Walmart has come up with two great deals: Christmas Dinner for Eight for only $30 and a New Year’s Eve party for 10 for under $40. Who can’t use budget friendly help like this during the holidays?!

Walmart's Christmas Dinner for Eight under $30 provides all the ingredients necessary for a traditional meal, including a 10-lb Spiral Cut Half Ham, three cans of Del Monte green beans, one 10-lb bag of russet potatoes, Sara Lee dinner rolls, and a pumpkin pie. The New Year's party basket for 10 for under $40 includes a Shrimp Tray, Vegetable Tray, Hillshire Farms Little Smokies, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, Land O'Lakes Egg Nog, and a Red Velvet cake.

If you’re in need of some new and fresh ideas and recipes, Walmart has teamed up with Aarón Sánchez of Food Network to share some cooking tips, recipes and unique ideas he’s created with Walmarts basket of holiday and New Year’s Ingredients.

So don’t stress out, don’t even fret about how you’re going to afford to feed all these people this holiday season, head out to Walmart for some great, inexpensive ideas just right for your budget. You can visit www.walmart.com for more information.

I'll just be making a nice dinner for my family this year. We prefer relaxing together rather than having parties or entertaining in any big way.

barbara.montyj said...

This holiday season my only entertaining is having neighbors over.
Having veggies, chips with dip.
BBQ cocktail weinies and guests bringing the rest.
Pretty easy.

Courtenay said...

We are going to our parents' homes to see family so since we aren't hosting anything we are baking and bringing lots of cookies!
