My kids are usually more willing to try new flavors in fun bite-sized portions, so I’m hopeful about this Chicken and Feta Meatballs at Ashley Munro Nutrition. Serve with some red peppers and hummus, and you’ll have an easy, light dinner. This would also make an easy dinner to pack up for soccer practice or play rehearsal, if your kids have evening plans.
This sweet and savory Mango pulled-pork recipe at Honey and Birch is slow-cooker easy. Just dump it all in and let it cook all day. Use it for sandwiches, nachos, tacos, or anything else that sounds tempting to you.
Crunchy bread and crispy Brussels sprouts make this Autumn Panzanella Salad at Well and Full hearty enough to be your whole dinner. But you could also serve up some grilled chicken or fish on the side. Or, let’s be honest, chicken tenders for the kids.
Even though it’s October, it still feels like summer where I live. So we’re craving these Cajun shrimp tacos at Honey, What’s Cooking? My kids love shrimp, but you could use the same seasonings on chicken or even tofu for a meat-free version.
We love appetizer night for dinner at our house, and I usually include slider sandwiches in our offering. I love how relaxed and easy these Ham and Swiss sliders at Small Town Woman are. They’re warm and melty with some kick from that Dijon mayo spread. I’d set these out with fruit, chips, and a veggie tray for movie night with the kids.
