Quick Family Dinners: 8 Meals You’ll Love For School Nights

I am all about quick family dinners for school nights. I have no time and no patience for fiddly recipes with a lot of hands-on time.

If you have more than 5 ingredients, you have to be the most delicious meal I have ever had for me to bother making you on a school night. Am I right?

While I have my usual go-to meals, I am always on the look out for fresh meal ideas that are simple to make and yummy to eat.

  1. I am going to try the lemon broccoli pasta and caprese calzones soon! The look yummy and unlike what I usually make. We definitely prefer making our own burgers too and fajitas are one of our go-to’s

  2. Love your list! You just made me crave for some cheeseburger sliders. It’s midnight here and I have no choice but to wait for tomorrow.

    Thank you for these wonderful ideas. Will definitely consider this for our weekly meal plan. I am also excited to have some Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff

  3. These all look amazing and are probably a bit more healthy the other “quick” options. Also, I always need to look when I see “Instant pot”. I’m a bit obsessed.
