Back to school season is HERE! What a weird summer it’s been! We still have a few weeks before Piper starts virtual Kindergarten and I’ve been doing my best to prepare for the busy season that awaits us. I’m still wrapping my head around how I’ll have time to spend hours a day schooling Piper, caring for Flora and Alice and working! One thing I know I’ll have less time for is cooking. Today, I’ve partnered with one of our favorite grocery stores, ALDI
to share 3 easy and quick dinner ideas that I’ll be using to save myself time and money in the kitchen this fall.
The best part about these dinner recipes is that they are kid-friendly and utilize my little dinner-time hack that I use to get my girls to eat anything! It’s the lazy-susan trick that works every time! Anything that I can prepare and set out on our lazy-susan at dinner and allows the girls to self-serve their food is a big win! Tacos are a go-to, but lately I’ve been searching for new ways to serve dinner this way and came up with 3 ideas that have been a hit in our home using ingredients from ALDI.
Preparing our weekly menu on Sunday and shopping for the week is the only way I stay organized with groceries and our meal plan. We love to shop at ALDI because our grocery bill stays low, and ALDI offers such a great value. I especially love all of the organic options they have.
So… let’s get on with the recipes! Most of these are semi-homemade and don’t take much prep work, making them perfect for busy weeknights!
These Greek bowls are a quick and easy meatless meal that pack in a ton of flavor and sneak in veggies!

We usually have pasta once a week and it can get boring, but when I serve it up with an easy cream sauce and broccoli, the girls devour it and it makes mealtime more fun! We use liveGfree Gluten Free Brown Rice Quinoa Fusili which is an easy way to sneak in some extra protein and I always keep a bag of the Simply Nature Organic Broccoli in the freezer!
