4 Meals To Easily Cook This Week: Back To School

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.

As much as we eat food, you’d think it would be easy to come of with meal ideas- it’s not. I always find myself putting it off until the last minute and then we end up going for fast food. This week we are cooking at home.

I’ve found that keeping certain foods in the pantry and refrigerator makes it easier to come with my meals during the week, especially since school is back in session. This year, all three of my girls are in school so I have to be able to make meals quick and simple so that we can stay on schedule.

Here are 4 Meals to Easily Cook This Week: Back To School Edition:

Homemade Pizza

My kids love pizza! They can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack. Keeping Jus-Rol Pizza Crust in the refrigerator makes it easy to make for whatever meal they want it for- I prefer lunch or dinner. Jus-Rol products are made in the USA, Non-GMO, vegetarian, and include no artificial flavors, colors, high fructose corn syrup or bleached flour.

Jus-Rol comes in a variety of packages. You can choose from the Jus-Rol Round & Thin Pizza Crust, Jus-Rol Family Size Pizza Crust, or the Jus-Rol Puff Pastry Dough.

The crusts are also rolled on baking paper for simple prep and even easier clean up. Find Jus-Rol near you here & have a pizza night this week.

French Crepes

French Crepes are perfect for a school day breakfast. It only takes 5 minutes to make them and the whole family will love them. You need to grab some Farin’UP French Crepes Mix and keep it in your pantry. The only other ingredient you need for this is milk and fruit if you want to add that. My girls like to top theirs with strawberries & blueberries. The Farin’UP French Crepes Mix comes in a resealable pack so that you can pour out what you need and safely store the rest for another day. It also comes with easy to follow recipes on the back of the pack.

Fruit Protein Balls

If you’re looking for a no-bake meal option, this is for you! Farin’UP has a Protein Balls Mix: Fruit that is plant based and gluten free. It also comes in a resealable pack like the French Crepes Mix for easy pouring and safe storing. Even if it falls over in your pantry, the resealable pack prevents any spills from happening. One pack can make up to 30 servings & the easy to follow recipe is on the back of the packaging.

You can order both of the Farin’UP French Crepes Mix and Farin’UP Protein Balls Mix: Fruit here and use code BTS22INF01 at checkout for 15% off sitewide (Valid from Aug 20 till Sept 22, 2022)

Chicken & Rice

Now if you haven’t learned anything from me so far, you already know that I like quick & easy meals. At least once a week we have chicken and I always cook extra to have for left overs. When you pull out that left over chicken this week, pair it with Minute’s Chicken & Herb Seasoned Rice Cups. Minute Rice Cups are fast and easy mealtime solutions that bring any meal together!

The Minute’s Chicken & Herb Seasoned Rice Cups have carrots, onions, and garlic in them so that covers the vegetables too. The best part is it cooking in only 1 minute. This is one of the few things that I always keep stocked in my pantry because they can be paired with a protein, eaten as a snack and be an on-the-go breakfast for those days that I am running a little late. You can find Minute’s Chicken & Herb Seasoned Rice Cups here.

I hope these meal ideas can make your meal prep time a lot quicker. If you are going to try one of these, comment let me know which one.
