Recipe Tuesday-Back to School Recipes

With everyone back to school, the question on your mind might be, "What do I feed my hungry hoard?"  NEVER fear, Mami Thyme is here! I have found some tasty, easy to put together recipes for you that you can get even the pickiest of eaters to eat: breakfast, lunch & dinner.

Let's start with breakfast.

Quick Dish by has a wonderful Breakfast Fondue idea. This recipe calls for cinnamon rolls and crushed Trix , which may not be your idea of a nutritious breakfast, but the idea is a brilliant one.  Instead of cinnamon rolls, use cut up muffins.  Instead of Trix, try crushed Honey Nut Cheerios

I also like this recipe, also from Tablespoon.comBacon And Potato Breakfast Pizza uses Pillsbury Crescents and Green Giant® Frozen Roasted Potatoes with Garlic & Herbs.  This recipe is quick and easy and to save a little of time you can precook the bacon and defrost the potatoes in the fridge overnight.

How about lunch?

These Spaghetti Nests from would be a fantastic surprise in your kiddo's lunch box.  This site also has Project Lunch Box with many clever ideas for fun, exciting, healthy meals your little angel will be proud to tote to school. had these wonderful recipes for Kiddie Kabobs that I thought were BRILLIANT!

They also had a wonderful list of delicious Fun Finger Foods that were all easily portable.
Personalizing your child's lunch was another sweet idea I found that might brighten up you little one's day. had these really cute  Printable Lunch Stickers , best of all they are free of charge!

Now for dinner?

By the time you get back from picking the kids up, running them here or there from one activity to another, who wants to make dinner, right?  But we also don't want our kiddos to eat anything less than a healthy meal. So, what a busy Mami to do?

Cooking Light had these wonderful Chicken Recipes, I especially liked the Quick Chicken Corn Chowder and the Three Cheese Chicken Penne Florentine.  I love that you can prepare it the night before and then all you have to do it pop it into the oven and 25 minutes later, DINNER!
What about surprising your kids with this colorful pasta recipe from Quick-Dish at

The possibilities are endless. For ever more ideas, you can take the Eating Healthy Start for Back to School Challenge.  It has seven days of healthy recipes for lunch and dinner that are yummy and easy to make.

Hope you found this post helpful.  Go forth and COOK!
