These 31 back to school recipes are perfect if you are always in a hurry to run from one place to another. They can serve at room temperature for breakfast, backpack lunch, hold-you-over-until-dinner snacks and/or dinner.
I share the same headache like many parents. Spring and fall is always the time that I always tell other people, "I run like a headless chicken".
In the morning, I make sure to get my son and my lunch bags ready for school and work. After the drop-off at school, I hurry back to work. Take a 30-minute lunch time and try to squeeze in a short walk as an exercise for the day. Get out of work and pick up my son. Head back home to complete his homework and head out to the door for sport practice or game. Come back home very late in the evening for a quick dinner before going to bed.
Does that sound like your hectic daily routine? (Man...I feel like running out of breath by getting this all out.)
Throughout the years, I found that it is very difficult to pack a perfect lunch for my little one. Even with a freezable lunch bag, cold food becomes warm food when lunch hour rolls in. Hot food in thermostat faces similar issue. There was once that the steam from the food locked the lid of his thermostat so tight, he couldn't find someone to help him to open it. At the end, he gave up and brought the entire lunch back home with an empty stomach for an entire afternoon.
Because of all those challenges I described earlier, I specifically picked up these 31 back to school recipes which will overcome your crazy schedule and food temperature headache. Even if you only have time to cook one meal a day, multiply the size of it. Then, you will have leftover for other meals during the week. So, check them out with my tips.
Wait, there is more.
