Easy Dinner Recipes for Busy Nights & Weekly Link Party

Looking for quick and easy dinner ideas for your busy weeknights? Here are some delicious options to serve up! These recipes are bursting with fresh ingredients and flavor, but they are simple enough to pull together even on your busiest evenings. And many of them are perfect make-ahead meals!

We started back to [home]school last week! I think I forgot over the lazy days of summer how much of a time suck homeschooling can be. Don't get me wrong! I love our home school journey, and I wouldn't make any other choice during this season of life. It can be time-consuming and exhausting being both mom and teacher, though.

When the day has exhausted me, the last thing I want to think about some evenings are dinner preparations. Can anyone else relate? I want my family to enjoy the benefits of nutritional, homemade meals, though. The solution? Well, these recipes are a good place to start. Featured below you'll find 10 delicious recipes that are quick and easy to prepare. I can't wait to start trying some of these for our weeknight meals! Which do you think your family would enjoy most?

3. Italian Pasta Salad / Simply Stacie

4. Mediterranean Chicken and Rice Bowl / Simply Stacie
