Easy Dinner Recipes with Mushrooms

August 1, 2019

Getting back into the swing of things after a summer of fun is never easy. As your schedule picks back up with school, sports and fall activities, finding time for family dinners gets tougher too. Keep cooking simple and your weeknight family time intact with these helpful tips and easy dinner recipes.

  • Plan your meals and grocery trips. Get everyone involved in weekly meal planning by asking each member of the fam to contribute a dinner idea. This speeds up the brainstorming process and ensures everyone will get a meal they enjoy. Then, create a focused grocery list to guide your shopping and plan which dinner you’ll cook each day, keeping all your commitments in mind. When it comes time to make the meal, you’ll know you have all the ingredients you need.
  • Keep it simple. On busy nights, getting food on the table is a victory itself. It doesn’t need to be fancy. Simple meals like stir-fries, soups and skillets are easy ways to provide a healthy balance of various food groups and nutritious ingredients. If you struggle to get your kids to eat their veggies, try creative strategies like The Blend.
  • Turn cooking into family time. Crank some tunes and make it a party! Give your kids simple tasks they can do to help. Or, have them work on their homework at the counter while you cook so, by the time you’re ready to eat, everyone can focus on enjoying the time together.
