Here are my top go-to, easy, family-friendly weeknight meals!
Our kids will be back to school in a week or so, which means that schedules fill up, activities start, and weeknights become a little more hectic. And we all know that there’s nothing worse than having nothing planned for dinner by the time 5 o’clock rolls around. And it can happen so easily!
Full disclosure…I’m not the best at meal planning. In fact, I suck at it. I have the best of intentions, but never actually do it. And if I do, it lasts about a week and then falls by the wayside. So, I’ve stopped beating myself up about it, and instead have found a mealtime strategy that works for me. I have a weeknight survival supper list that includes our favourite, easy, 30-minute meals–you know, the ones that you can throw together at the last minute. All that I have to remember is to take meat out the night before, and have some essentials on-hand at all times–things like coconut milk, chicken broth, cheese, ground beef and turkey, canned tomatoes, beans, and corn, quinoa, pasta, and some fresh veggies.
I find that having a go-to list of healthy, easy weeknight dinners (that my kids love) is a life saver, and I love sharing them too! Here are my favourite busy weeknight suppers for you to try out with your family. Make sure to make extra for leftovers for school lunches!
