15 Quick Weeknight Meals for Your Family

15 Quick Weeknight Meals for Your Family

Fall is here and back to school is in full swing. My must have at this point in a list of quick weeknight meals that use ingredients I have on hand.

Our evenings are not overly busy (yeah, I am THAT mom who is super happy my kid is not into sports) but I know that for many of you the evenings are a drag race to bedtime. While we don’t have THAT issue, I am only cooking for Evan and I so I don’t want to make a big fancy dinner every night. Instead, I find myself making these easy, delicious, family-friendly quick weeknight meals over and over again.

Since I know you have busy evenings too, I thought you might be interested in these recipes. I promise that they are easy and use ingredients that are easy to find or may already be in your pantry.
