Quick and Simple Back to School Meal Time Ideas

Back to School Meal Ideas

Back to school season this year has had me thrown for a loop.  The kids are starting their second school year in Florida and the school year starts very early down here.  

Going into this summer, I assumed this year wouldn’t be as bad after hustling through last year, I was wrong!  After living my entire life in New England, I guess it is still a habit to think of August as a summer month.  When school supplies started popping up in stores before the 4th of July, logically I thought “wow, I guess we have to start shopping” but did I? No!  I am so accustomed to the 4th of July being the kick off of the summer festivities not the time that the summer fun starts to wind down.  So, I procrastinated and procrastinated and as you can surely imagine, the first few weeks of school this year had me frazzled, pus to add to the stress, the youth sports season started at the same time.

There were several nights that I spent trying to squeeze through the school supply isles of my local department store with all the other stressed out mothers, after already spending hours on a practice field.   Luckily by day one, the kids had their new school clothes on and their backpacks packed, but once they got on the bus, I realized I hadn’t even thought about dinner, or lunch for the second day.  I excitedly thought about how I could now stroll through the grocery store without any kids attached to my carriage, but the last thing I wanted to think about was cooking.  Luckily Boston Market saved my sanity!

Boston Market Family Meal

I love Boston Market because I can run in and get a complete meal for my family that is not only affordable, but it also feels like home cooking.  We are still sitting around the table passing the mashed potatoes and vegetables at the end of the day talking about how school was, and this makes my heart happy and my brain a whole lot less frazzled.

Boston Market Family Meals feed families of three, four or more.  I usually get the Family Meal for 4, because my husband works the night shift and isn’t a big eater at dinner time, so it is always more than enough food for us.   With a main dish of rotisserie chicken, meatloaf, roasted turkey, or BBQ ribs, plus 4 sides and corn bread, this family dinner is an easy way to get everyone to the kitchen table without any complaints!

How I used my $1.99 Fresh Never Frozen Rotisserie Chicken

Breakfast:

Omelets!  I love mixing up the usual cereal or waffles quick breakfasts that happen in my house during busy mornings.  Omelets are a perfect option when I have cooked chicken in the fridge waiting for me.  My kids love eggs, and I love being able to add some nutritious chicken breast and veggies to their breakfast.  With the help of Boston Market’s $1.99 meal deal, I can have a hot breakfast on the table as quickly as it takes my children to pick out which cereal they’d want.

Lunch:

Chicken Salad is a lunch time favorite for my family, the kids love it as a sandwich, while my husband and I can eat it by the bowl full.  Using Boston Market’s Rotisserie Chicken makes my normal chicken salad a lot more flavorful, plus there is no cooking for me!  Lunch is ready in a few minutes.

Dinner:

For a third meal, I used what was left of our rotisserie chicken in a quick Ceaser Salad mix to add some protein to flavor to it.

For $1.99, this Boston Market Meal Deal, saved me time while feeding my family 3 delicious meals in addition to the original family dinner I purchased.
