Simple Back to School Dinners for Busy Families

We spent the morning assembling and preparing meals in the kitchen on the set of Indy Style. Each of these are family tested and children can help with the lulupourpreparation! Make ahead meals, crock pot meals or throwing something together very quickly, we’ve got you covered! Katy Mann from Indy with Kids, and her daughter Lulu are using some of their favorite ingredients from Tastefully Simple & Pillsbury. Combine these easy to use extras with your favorite vegetables and meats and the delicious aromas from your kitchen will call your family to the table without a word!

Quick and Easy Chili (freeze it for cool fall nights)

Use one pot to make it all and then freeze leftovers for future busy nights. Substitute Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic and Onion Onion for the tedious chore of chopping onions and garlic. So much flavor!

Easy Sloppy Joes for Making Ahead

Only seven items needed, five minutes of prep and can be cooked in a slow cooker straight from the freezer!
