Back to school time is a little rough for me in the dinner department. It used to be my toughest time of day. It’s that time of year of summer/fall and the fading sunlight. Then there are hungry pets, hungry kids, and a limited amount of time to focus on homework, snack, cleanup, quality time together before dinner. Scarlet had the awesome idea to write up a meal plan so that we’d at least have an idea of what we wanted at any day of the week. For example, Saturday is always pasta night because we have a pasta maker at home and we need time to make that fresh pasta! Mondays are always some sort of salad, Tuesdays involve soup, etc. And we get creative.
If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know I thrive on everything that makes kid snacks and meals easier. Every back-to-school season is filled with changes in the air, no matter what stage you are in. Not only is this year no exception, but it’s a bit of a doozy! Ok, it’s a major doozy. This is my last year of two kids in the same school until high school! Scarlet is in fifth grade which seems like a big grade to me. She no longer talks about pink princesses all of the time. Instead, she often has her nose in a book, or is talking about sloths, basketball, or theater. Des started second grade and I’m still not sure how much he likes it – but he does look forward to going back every morning. (free breakfast might have something to do with that)
Now let’s talk about family dinner ideas and deals!
Getting a nutritious meal on the table, that the WHOLE family will love, can be a challenge. We all know and love that Boston Market has given time back to busy families and individuals for more than 30 years now! They do that with quality, home-style meals at a convenient value in more than 370 U.S. locations. And one of those locations is near us! So I’m feeling lucky.
Family Meal Deal!
For this back to school season, if you purchase any Family Deal between now and October 27th, you can receive a whole rotisserie chicken for just $1.99! You can purchase in store, as takeout, or have it delivered. And as a bonus, you’ll receive a free Pecan or Apple pie with the purchase of a Family Meal from September 3rd – 30th! Here’s your coupon! I recommend the Apple Pie.
So, what did I order?
I’m super glad you asked! We got our rotisserie chicken, and the extra one of course, and ordered a few sides – macaroni and cheese, steamed vegetables, and mashed potatoes. We also got corn bread and gravy with our meal. I placed my order online and it was hot and fresh and ready for me! We also took advantage of the pie deal, as one does, and chose Apple Pie.
