Class is back in session, and when the kids get home, we all know they’ll be ready for dinner. This list of Back To School Dinner Ideas is full of recipes that are perfect for those busy weeknights!
BACK TO SCHOOL WEEK
Can you believe that the summer flew by so quickly and now we are back to packing lunches and sending the kids off to school again?! Time flies when you’re having fun, and I swear these kids are growing like weeds. With all the preparation that goes into getting the scholastic year started, having dinner on the table can seem a little daunting. Take a recess from your stress and use my Back to School Dinner Ideas as your guide for family meals this week. This list is full of hearty and healthy meals to keep you and your kids engaged and energized.
EASY DINNER IDEAS
I picked some of my favorite meals that are balanced and have a good combo of protein, veggies, and carbohydrates for dinners that satisfy and sustain. Oven Roasted Chicken and Veggies is one of my top priorities on back-to-school week. Lean chicken breast and healthy vegetables baked to perfection for a hearty homemade meal at the end of a long day of learning.
Dinners should also be fun, and that’s why my Taco Pizza is on the list. It’s a delicious and easy meal to celebrate this new chapter of the year.
And we can’t forget the ultimate back to school and post meal treat, Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies. These cookies are definitely the way to your kiddos hearts when they get home from their first day.
One of the best aspects of this week’s recipes is that they all make for amazing leftovers the following night. The Taco Noodle Skillet was built for leftovers. It is fabulous fresh off the stove top, and after resting overnight it tastes even better the next day!
My Teriyaki Chicken Casserole is another one that tastes even better reheated for dinner the next day!
