Soon the warm days of summer will turn into cool, windy light-jacket weather. Your monthly planner will fill up with carpools, school project due dates, and PTA meetings. Weeknight cooking always starts off strong at the beginning of the week, with planned meals and pre-packed lunches; however, once hump-day hits, you start to loose some steam and the weekend ahead is calling your name. But you still need to get dinner on the table. This is when one-pot dishes, the Instant Pot recipes, and sheet pan dinners really come in handy. Any recipe that allows you to sort of throw everything together and stir occasionally to yield delicious results is exactly what you need. Here are some of our best weeknight dinners to help you finish even the most hectic weeks strong—with family-friendly, easy, and satisfying meals.
