Easy Weekday Dinners For A Busy Day

Eating a bite of cheesy macaroni and cheese

As school goes back into session, the homework will pile up, the calendar will overflow, and mealtimes will become complicated. Instead of hitting a drive-thru or resulting in sub-par frozen dinners, there are plenty of 30-minute meals that will be a treat to your family’s tastebuds. Both of these dinners, whether you choose to whip up the Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas or Five-Ingredient Macaroni and Cheese, will soon be a part of your weekly meal rotation.
