What's for dinner mom? You hear it over and over again during the school year. And it's hard to keep answering that question without rolling your eyes. At least it is for me. After working all day the last thing I want to do is make dinner. And usually everybody's ready to pass out from a hard day of learning.
I wanted to make a collection of easy ideas to refer to for the upcoming school year. Easy things. Cute things. Things that Luka might actually eat.
This Collection of Easy School Night Dinner Ideas was made using Foodie.com, which is a unique recipe collecting platform, kind of like Pinterest. They are sponsoring this post and this collection that I'm sharing with you. You can sign up for Foodie.com and follow me as I build interesting recipe collections. I'll follow you back if you do!
