It's that time again!
Well, easy enough, right? LOLZ NO, get out of here! No, seriously, get out, Susan. This is not the time to brag about how your brilliant children gobble down their organic, vegan, made-with-love-and-locally-sourced-herbs meals each night, then thank you in the third language they're currently learning just for fun.
For the rest of us, meal planning means negotiating picky eaters, a time crunch, and balancing your desire to feed your children healthy and creative meals with your need to serve dinner before witching hour.
We got you.
Below are six kid-friendly dinner recipes that parents will also enjoy eating, are fairly healthy, and are quick and easy to make.
