It’s always a bit of a shock when our schedule changes in the fall. As much as I try to be organized and stay ahead of the game, I always feel like I’m barely treading water. I have to remember to do stuff and be places that I didn’t have to remember in the summer…like to pick up my kids from school in the afternoon. Oops. I can’t do anything about your crazy schedule and I probably can’t help you remember to pick up your kids – although if you forget, I’m right here to commiserate with you because that can happen to anyone. Ahem. I can share this list of easy weeknight meals that can help make planning dinner and getting it on the table less daunting. No matter how busy you are, your family has to eat dinner, right? And trust me, I rely on pizza and fast food more than I like to admit but I really try to plan and shop in such a way that I’ll have the ingredients on hand to make simple and balanced meals that my kids won’t declare “gross” or “disgusting.”

Ultimate List of Easy  Weeknight Meals

I’m a big fan of crock pot meals but quick and easy skillet meals like Veggie Gnocchi (YUM!) and throw-it-together meals like the Super Simple Taco Bar have a place in our lineup, too. The majority of these meals are made with basic ingredients you probably keep in your pantry paired with produce and meats that are easy to get. Easy and simple are the key words, here, people. I love to cook but on the weeknights, I just don’t have time to make fancy meals. I hope you enjoy this list of easy weeknight meals. It’s hard to pick a favorite because all of these are so good, but I really LOVE the chicken salad, mostly because it doubles as lunch the next day.
