Now that the 4th of July is behind us it’s time to start thinking about back to school. I know, all you teachers are trying to find other things to think about. I was a teacher for 6 years and I remember watching the days go by way to quickly until we were right there starting another school year again. For many of you parents though, you may be counting down the days until you can send the kids back to school!
As the school year begins our lives get crazy busy and it’s so easy to just swing thru a drive thru or call the pizza place when you’re too tired to cook. So today we have a list of easy back to school dinner ideas to keep you away from the golden arches! You’ll definitely want to pin this post (use our easy share buttons along the top) to come back to it throughout the school year. While you’re at it, be sure to follow us on Pinterest for all our recipes and other posts!
