10 Back To School Dinner Recipes


I can hardly believe it’s back to school time again! We have less than 2 weeks before we start, but I know most schools are back in session!  Can’t wrap my head around having to start homework and making lunches everyday, lol!  I’ve got 13 days to prep myself.

It’s a big transition to start making dinner most of the week so I’ve put together some of my favorite back to school dinner recipes to get you motivated :) Happy back to school time!

    My favorite back to school recipes aren’t dinner, Jenny. I think gourmet lunch for one (or two!) while the kids are gone is the best!

    I’ll need to try the chili tortellini.
