Large family meals made easy. Try this chicken gumbo recipe when you need to feed a crowd.

Easy Weeknight Dinners That Can be Prepped Ahead

School officially starts here next week so it is high time to start thinking about easy weeknight dinners.

School this year looks different than it ever has before. Hezekiah and Jubilee will be doing Running Start through our local community college. Mordecai will continue with home-based learning provided by the school, Avi will be doing distance learning through the school. Tucker and Apollo will be straight up homeschooling…and for the first time ever we will be having two extras join us this year…former classmates of Apollo’s whose parents work fulltime.

Easy weeknight dinners the entire family will love.

I anticipate that next week will be fun/exciting/stressful/busy and all the other things. So I am working now to put together some easy weeknight meals to at least cut down on one area of stress.

If you have any great ideas for easy weeknight meals, please share them in the comments!
