Another few weeks here in NY before back to school, but I have totally pinned this to refer back to when the time comes now. Thanks!! 🙂
This is a good list! Time is always scarce on weeknights even without sports to worry about.
Jennifer Ostroski says
Oh my gosh. We don’t have sports nights yet, but these for sure work with crazy 2 and 6 year old nights!!! I’m excited to try some.
Love this!! We aren’t even old enough for sports yet but there’s piano lessons, dance, library activities, kinder-music and the list goes on. Not to mention meetings for myself and my husband. Every night seems to be crazy. This is such a great list of easy meals because I seriously doubt my budget can handle any more take-out!
