Back-to-School Dinner Recipe Round-Up

September 3, 2014

Not that having my kids back in school means anything for me in terms of dinner prep…. in fact there is likely no difference. It was hard in the summer and its going to be hard once they are back in school. But I like to think of September as a new beginning. A time when I take my somewhat unstructured life and give it a little help. A plan, we’ll call it…….A dinner plan.

To kickstart this new me, I consulted with some of my favorite Philadelphia area bloggers and they’ve each given me one of their go-to, easy, healthy, family-friendly recipes and, yep, I’m going to share them with you all. I’ve also included some of my more popular recipes as well.

So here’s to September, here’s to dinners planned for the week, here’s to grocery lists made every Sunday, and here’s to hoping the members of the gallery like what’s on their plate. Admist sports practices, homework, music lessons and karate… at least we can say we know what’s for dinner. And these recipes are easy enough to help you squeeze it all in. Here it is: The Back-to-School Dinner Recipe Round-Up:
