Easy Weekday Meals

Easy Weekday Meals

Make family dinners simple with these unique meal options!

August is quickly approaching and what schools will look like is still a mystery, but whether kids go back or are online, it adds additional stress to our already busy schedules. Between kids' schooling, working (especially if you are home with the aforementioned distracting kiddos!), prepared lunches, family dinners, and after-school activities, life is about to get a bit hectic. Well we can help with one thing: Easy Dinners! My favorite part about being young was the themed dinners my mom made for us. She did theme nights throughout the week. This method adds a sense of fun for the family while helping you easily answer the daily question of "What's for dinner?"

I put together my favorite themes for each weekday as well as some of my go-to dinners and my favorite recipes to help you start planning your week. Click here to download printable recipe cards.
