11 Sep After School Dinner Ideas
It’s officially September and we all know what that means- After the long, hot summer the kids are back to school (finally!!!). If you are a busy parent on the go, the daunting prospect of after-school clubs and manic school run traffic is most likely looming. It’s always a tight schedule and adding cooking dinner into the mix can often become a literal recipe for disaster!
Don’t fret because More More More… is here to help you. We know how time-consuming food preparation can be at times but don’t let yourself succumb to the McDonalds drive through (those nuggets can be hard to resist!) and keep it nutritious, healthy and homemade with our great after school dinner options. Because here at more more more… we cook so you don’t have too! They involve nothing more than sticking the oven on and bunging them in, so stop helplessly staring at the slow cooker and let us step in. From Monday to Friday, here are our top 5 picks for after-school dinners…
MONDAY… Fussy Eaters!
Start the week off on the right foot and don’t enter into dinner time warfare! We all know how testing fussy eaters can be, so if you struggle to get your little ones to chow down, our tomato and basil sauce guarantees to be a fan favorite. This tasty Italian-style sauce is an authentic recipe and fail-safe option paired with pasta for the kids or chicken or fish to carry it through to adult dinner time.
TUESDAY… One Pot Wonder!
This one pot wonder is an ideal meal to feed the whole family. It’s a quickie bung in the oven job, so if you’re having a post-swimming club stress throw this simple bake in the middle of the table and tuck in!
WEDNESDAY… Midweek Munchies!
Fill up on your Omega 3 with this delectable midweek dish. Flavoursome but not overpowering, our chilli and ginger salmon is a perfect option for kiddies and parents alike. Why not try it with our peas and onions and creamy mashed potato side dishes guaranteed to keep everyone happy.
THURSDAY… Comfort Food!
Nothing beats a good old spag bol! It’s a classic dinner option that never fails to go down a treat. Why not try our homemade bolognese sauce made with steak mince, red wine, assorted herbs and more. Simply cook up a batch of spaghetti and top with some parmesan shavings- it’s as easy as that! This is also a great one to stock up on and bung in the freezer so you’re never left feeling unprepared.
FRIDAY… Stars and Stripes!
It’s nearly the weekend! We bet you’re very much ready for that Saturday morning lie in. For the last dinner of the week give our oozy, cheesy mac ‘n’ cheese a go. The kids will most likely of had something fish related for their lunch at school if they get hot dinners, so mix it up and give everyone an end of week treat with this America classic. Our take includes cherry tomatoes and a crunchy breadcrumb topping. It’s a tummy warming favorite perfect for a Friday evening of movies.
Monday to Friday these delicious after-school dinners pledge to keep you in good stead and on top of all your parenting duties.
