Here's A 7-Night Dinner Plan That's Perfect For Busy Families

Everything you need to make this back-to-school season the easiest and most delicious one yet — from grocery lists, to dinner guides, to simple recipes your whole family will love.

Ready or not, it's that time of the year again: Back-to-school season.

And whether that means you're rushing off to night classes, scurrying to get out the door, or simply trying to keep track of your family's complex schedule — everyone could use a little help. Especially during dinnertime.

So we put together a cheat sheet of seven easy and ultra-practical dinners that you can dress up or down to make everyone in your family happy.

The recipes were designed to be easy to put together, convenient, and crowd-pleasing — because we totally understand how hectic back-to-school season can be.

We assumed you had a few things already hanging out in your pantry. (If not, just add these things to your grocery list.)

So go ahead: Make one recipe, make them all, or simply use this guide as inspiration. We want you to own this back-to-school season — and making yourself a delicious dinner is a great place to start. ✓
