We listed our home the first week in January and had to keep it staged, clean and tidy for two and a half months. Y’all, with a toddler!! A boy toddler. So, needless to say, finding easy meals has been a must.

We ate out more than usual, but I hate doing it too often for our health (and wallet). At home, I got a little creative on how to make things – by the last week before our move I made mostly meals in our slow cooker and used my favorite no-cleanup Slow Cooker Liners to make the job super easy. That, and frozen foods with foil in our NuWave.
Staging your home makes for a really tough season, especially with kiddos! Between staging and eventually packing for our move, we needed some go-to quick and easy meals. I’ve rounded up my top 20 dinners that are easy, healthy-ish and family approved.
Slow Cooker Taco Meat – one of my fav recipes we make super often
Shredded buffalo chicken – not so much for the kiddos, but if they like spicy it is a winner!
Cheesy Chicken Cauliflower Casserole – When Mi Amor BBQ’s, I always have him make extra chicken for this recipe, and the Chicken Parmesan Casserole below.20 mouthwatering and easy meals that the whole family will enjoyClick To Tweet
One pot / one pan:
Balsamic Chicken & Veggies – part of the prep can be done the day before
Million Dollar Spaghetti – one of our favorite meals. Takes a little bit of work, but feeds us for a few days so totally worth it. I substitute the beef/sausage for Italian Style Ground Turkey, and use Banza chickpea Pasta Spaghetti.
Chicken Parmesan Casserole – they key here is using easy, tasty chicken.
Pesto Broccoli Sweet Potato Rice Casserole – use riced sweet potato to make the recipe super easy.Busy season with no time to cook? Here are 20 easy meals the whole family will approve ofClick To Tweet
