Thank you Amazon Fresh for sponsoring this post. Regardless all thoughts and opinions are my own and I only recommend products and services I truly love.
Summertime, and the livin’ is easy. At least that’s how we like it to be over here. Summers are for nights at the pool, easy schedules, and grilling out in our backyard as much as possible. And let’s get real – we can only eat plain old burgers every so often. If we don’t mix up our dinner options occasionally I’ll go crazy! That’s why last week we decided to get fun and creative with our grill out meal.
And with a toddler and a preschooler whose moods are unpredictable it’s really difficult to get to the grocery store to grab ingredients for our cook out nights. Okay I see it more as being impossible to make it to the grocery store. Who has time or the patience for that? That’s why I’ve become an Amazon Fresh addict. With Amazon Fresh I simply pick out what Fresh items I want. There’s all the food items I could want, and also things like diapers, wipes, sunscreen, etc. And several items I can only find on Amazon Fresh. Then I pick when I want them delivered. Depending on when it’s ordered it can be the same day or the next day. You pick the time slot you want your items delivered, and whether you are okay with them leaving them on your doorstep if you aren’t home or whether you want them to ensure you are home when the items are delivered. If you’re like me you don’t want to risk the delivery interfering with your kids schedule. All your items arrive packaged nicely in Amazon Fresh bags. The frozen items are packed in bags with dry ice to stay frozen, and the refrigerated items are packed with ice packs to stay cold as well. Everything is fresh, delicious, and ready to go.
I made sure I ordered pizza crust, shrimp, Alfredo sauce, and of course mozzarella cheese, as well as the ingredients we needed for burgers but with fun toppings like fried egg and avocado. Maddie Grace helped me assemble the pizza. We brushed the Alfredo sauce on the crust, sprinkled mozzarella on top, and then MG decorated the pizza with pre-cooked shrimp (she wanted one big circle of shrimp around the edge of the crust which I actually thought was a cool idea). And here is where you are probably wondering why I was talking about grilling out while also talking about making pizza. Well because we took this pizza and put it directly on the grill. We let it cook around 10 minutes then took it off and dug in.
And because this kid can’t wait for food to cook and has to have his Wickedly Prime Pea Crisps…
We got those six packs of wipes. They are actually the Amazon brand which work amazing. They smell good, are textured, and go a long ways. They were a serious life saver on this awesome day.
My Amazon Fresh order had the ingredients for dinner this night, snacks for the whole next week, wipes, swim diapers, and even sunscreen in it. You can basically get all the essentials you need for summer fun delivered to your doorstep quick! I will definitely be using Amazon Fresh frequently in the future. Have you tried this service? What were your thoughts? Tell me all about it below!

Amazon is life! Also, the pizza she made looks delicious!
So we are getting ready to move back near a big city, and I’m not kidding, Amazon Fresh is one of the things that I am most excited about. How did we do life before Amazon?
I wish we could get it here! And I’m definitely trying grilled pizza!
