Tons of easy, 30-minute meal ideas for back-to-school busy weeknights!My kiddos head off to school tomorrow and they are really excited! (Momma is too 😉 ) With them going back to school that means loads of homework, laundry and busy evenings are coming. I don’t know about you all, but the last thing I look forward to is dinner time on those crazy nights. I need it to be quick and simple yet something my kids will actually eat. And NOT the same boring old things. I want something new and semi-healthy to feed my family, so this is where my list of Easy Back-To-School Dinner Ideas comes in handy!

All these dinner ideas are tried and true, delicious recipes. Each of them take around 30 minutes to make, so it gives you extra time to help with homework, prepare lunches for the next day, and to spend time with the little ones you haven’t seen all day. So in no particular order- here they are. Enjoy!
