BEST SHEET PAN DINNER RECIPES – a gathering of the most easy & incredibly delicious dinner ideas. Saving you time while keeping your family happy & fed.
The start of the school year is always a brutal transition for me in our home. Some of it is that it is difficult to get back into the grind. Waking the kids up early, the fights over showers and what were packing for lunch. The carpooling, sport schedules and homework. With all that said, I love the school year. While it is hectic some days, over all everyone does better with some sort of routine, especially me!
This year though we will have 5 different kids in 3 different schools. Oh my! Survival tips are much appreciated, if you have any. Our oldest son, Aiden is headed into high school, Jojo our daughter is headed into middle school and then our three youngest, Madden, Jersey and Cannon are all in elementary. My driving routine will be crazy because of all the different start and finish times, sports and clubs. And while I hate the car – there is a bright side. This will be the first year that I have an entire block of 6 hours to myself. Literally first time in history since I became a mom, no one will be home with me for an entire 6 hours. I am not sure what I will do with myself, oh wait yes I do – A Dash of Sanity will keep me busy and of course a few lunch and gym dates.
Even with my new found time I know that dinner will still be insane and that I will need a plethora of easy & delicious, ideally 30-minute meal recipes. That’s why I decided to hunt down some of my favorites and share them with you. Because I can’t be the only mom out there feeling the pressure of the start of the school year and the lack of time we seem to have. Enjoy all of these ideas friends. XOXO San
My favorite kitchen utensils to make sheet pan meals.
Sheet Pan: I love using a larger sheet pan while cooking because I am feeding my family of seven. I love aluminium for when I do sheet pan meals. I would start with this 13 by 18 half sheet pan. You can get all of the asparagus on one sheet!
Knives: A good set of kitchen knives is essential for preparing any meal. I just recently invested in some Cutco knives and I have not regretted it one bit. These are hands down my favorite knives I have owned. Great to break up the garlic and cut the bottom of the asparagus off.
Cutting Board: For me this is a kitchen must-have and kitchen counter saver. While we have counter tops you can cut on, I find that this extra step will preserve my counter. I also find that using a cut board makes for less clean up afterwards. I love this cutting board because it has a groove all the way around the board preventing any juices that might run off and create a mess.
