What is your go-to meal when you have a busy/stressful day? I'm trying to wean myself off the convenience of fast food, and would love to hear what you do to make school day meals a little easier. :)

I always keep yogurt, cut fruit, cheese, hotdogs, cut raw veggies, lunch meat, crackers, pretzels cut up and packed in ziplocks (not the yogurt) and they can just grab and eat at lunch time. Or leftovers. I dont spend alot of time preparing breakfast or lunch.

On stress days we do picnic dinners and everyone helps to make them and clean up. Hotdogs, grilled cheese, pbn'j, lunch meat sandwiches and such, will celery, carrot sticks, or some veggie, chips and fruit.

Everybody gets a bagel. I toast the bagels and spread with garden veggie cream cheese.
In the oven I bake sliced tomato with cheese on top just until cheese melts. Place tomato slices on bagels, top with spices and serve with a side (carrots, sun chips, something along those lines...)
Its a favorite around here!

I do a lot of crock pot meals or stuff that is short prep that I can throw in the oven and come back to dinner!!  I get all my recipes online most from allrecipes.com.

Easy school day meal for me is Taco sandwichs, kinda like a sloppy joe just with taco meat and all the fixins on top DD loves it and its a great way to use up leftovers from the night before.
