It’s been three years since Americans were pushed to the edge. With all the hardships we have endured, jobs lost, homes foreclosed, we’re due for a turnaround. And as with everything it all begins at home right in our own backyards. The loss of manufacturing jobs has been the worse effect on the middle class. But we’re fighting back!
It’s true that America is a melting pot of cultures and it’s just as true that we are a nation of entrepreneurs. Our work ethic is second to none and when given a chance we rise to the occasion. Walmart has been focusing on American jobs in order to create them. Walmart has promised to invest $250 billion in products that will support American jobs for the next 10 years. This includes getting more products from manufacturers right here in the U.S.
Walmart already gets about two-thirds of their products from here in the U.S. according to manufacturers. By increasing what they already buy here in categories like sporting goods, apparel basics, storage products, games, and paper products; they will help create more jobs needed to manufacture these products.
Here are just a few examples;
Doug and I have worked hard to succeed and have had the good fortune to see all our hard work support our business and family goals. It hasn’t been easy, there are sacrifices that needed to be made but in the long run it pays off. Building our business has always improved when we join forces with other like minded companies. Check out a few of the companies that Walmart has helped with their commitment to bringing more opportunities to Americans.

Cheesy Garlic Bread - Sariachi – Chicken & Waffles – those are the flavors of the three finalist in last year’s “Do Us A Flavor” Contest held by LAY’s. Flavor inspiration can come from anywhere and you don’t have to be a foodie, flavor expert or chef to be inspired.
What inspires you? To be inspired myself, I recently visited the Frito-Lay headquarters with other Walmart Moms and had the chance to see first hand into the kitchens of their headquarters.
To show us how easy it is to be inspired by different flavors, the Frito-Lay executive research chef used our blogs for inspiration himself and came up with our lunch menu.
Hoosier Homemade with all of our cupcake recipes, inspired Chef Stephen to come up with an appetizer for us, Savory Chiliquille Muffins. with layers of pancake batter, a combination of chicken and sauteed vegetables with a little kick from TOSTITOS Chunky Salsa, made a delicious twist on a savory cupcake. We had the opportunity to create the recipes in the Frito-Lay Test Kitchen.
Next we enjoyed Speed Scratch Beef Stew Fritos Pie inspired by Frugal Upstate and her love for slow cooking. And then for dessert, inspired by Classy Mommy, a delicious Summer Berry Granite Parfait with layers of Fruit Granite and topped with yogurt.
Last year chip lovers were jumping up and down with excitement for the LAY’s “Do Us A Flavor” contest! Fans offered nearly four million potato chip flavor ideas in hopes of winning the contest and the $1 million grand prize.
Three finalist flavors were selected and LAY’S Cheesy Garlic Bread flavored potato chips were voted America’s favorite and the flavor’s creator Karen Weber-Mendham took home the grand prize.
That was just the beginning because once again this year, the “Do Us A Flavor” contest is back and bigger than ever! Not only do fans have the chance to once again submit their flavor ideas for a chance at a $1 million grand prize, but they’ll be able to choose from three potato chip forms as well, LAY’S Original, LAY’S Kettle Cooked or LAY’S Wavy. Also new this year, LAY’S and a panel of experts will pick and launch into market four finalist flavors instead of three, giving consumers even greater odds at winning the contest grand prize.
Submissions are open from now through April 5. Walmart shoppers can submit their flavor suggestions on www.walmart.com/dousaflavor. To submit, fans will be asked to provide their name, flavor name, up to three possible ingredients, chip style(s) and a 140-character description or inspiration for their flavor.
A judging panel made up of chefs, foodies and flavor experts will narrow down the contest and the four finalist flavors will then be fully developed by Frito-Lay’s culinary experts and unveiled in Summer 2014. From there, it will be up to fans to vote for the finalist flavor they want to see stay on. The winning flavor, determined by fan votes – will be revealed in November 2014.
What inspires you? Would it be yummy as a chip? Visit www.walmart.com/dousaflavor to enter for your chance to win now!
Family matters a lot to me, and that includes our dog Rocky who has been with our family for a whopping 17 years! We like to treat our family right, so it was nice to hear about Walmart’s new line of Pure Balance dog food.
They gave us the chance to try out this new food, and I was impressed. The food prides itself on being all natural with no corn, soy, wheat or grains. This was especially nice for our dog because grain doesn’t sit well with him. It makes his old skin irritated. Now he can get all the flavor without being itchy.
But what’s even more important than what isn’t in the food is what is in it. With real salmon as the first ingredient, and vitamins and minerals added in, this will be a meal that no dog will want to miss. There are no fillers, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives or artificial colors, and it helps support food sensitivities, helps support healthy vision and helps support heart health, which is perfect for our older dog.
Our dog always has an extra spring in his step whenever he smells the food. I would recommend Pure Balance dog food to any dog owner looking to keep their pet healthy and happy.
You can find Pure Balance exclusively at Walmart stores, cost may vary by store, average retail price 4lb. $7.27 11lb. $16.88 24lb.$32.83. Available in-store and online.
Doug and I wanted to take a few minutes to wish you and your family the very merriest Christmas ever! We feel so VERY blessed to be able to share what we love with all of you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for continuing to read and support our work!
We will be taking most of this week off to spend time with our family but will be popping in occasionally with a new post. Enjoy your holiday and we will see you all in 2014!
