Once the kids go back to school life just seems to get crazy! We are already near Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas are both quickly approaching! I love having a handful of quick fix dinners in my arsenal for nights that just call for something quick but yummy too! I can’t afford to order Pizza every night as much as I would like to 🙂
