48 meals for back to school season

I love the fall season – it always represents the start of a new “year” for me! It’s my favorite time of year and now the kids love it too. Feels so good to get back into somewhat of a structured routine – and that means making easy, delicious weeknight meals that everyone loves.

And meals that don’t take all day to make. Below you’ll find a bunch of our favorite dinners; ones I love to throw on our menu plan during the week.

I’ve shared posts in previous years with the best back to school meals and I reference it constantly for easy weeknight meals. So here’s a little inspo if you’re in back-to-school mode… or if you feel super rejuvenated by the approaching fall season like I do! As wacky and unpredictable as it may be this year – AGAIN. You can also find me on instagram cooking up all these recipes, step-by-step, just for you!
