Sharing is caring!

No matter where you live, back to school is starting. Maybe you started last week. Maybe you start this upcoming week. May you start right after Labor Day. Nonetheless, back school is happening! Busy families need real easy recipes to help them get dinner on the table.

I have pulled together a collection of 17 simple dinner ideas that are perfect for this time of year. These are all recipes that my readers shared recently on my weekly link party and a few of my personal favorites. We have taken some of the work out of meal planning for you and given you a collection of over two weeks of dinner ideas. How awesome is that?
