Easy Tyson Chicken Dippers with Zesty Chili Sauce

We have been back to school for the past three weeks and for some crazy reason I have not been able to get back on track with my routine. I’ve tried to zap myself back into reality, but I think my mind and body just seriously want to stay on the laid back summer schedule I set for myself and the kids.

Sam's Club

I’ve been planning meals for the past couple of years and love that I can head into my local Sam’s Club to get meal ideas for dinner with the many samplings they offer in their stores. Another great thing I love about Sam’s Club is that I can purchase items in bulk to plan multiple weeks of meals…making my life easier.

Even with all these easy meal ideas, I’m finding that my creativity in the easy meals department is getting the best of me. I think it has left me or it could be a combination of the many hats I’ve been wearing a lot lately…

My husband has been traveling quite a bit…

Both the boys are in football…

The mom taxi service is in full force…

Maybe they are just excuses to inhibit my creativity and be inspired in the kitchen, but finding the time to sit down and plan meals seems to be impossible these days. So I’ve been doing a lot of my meal planning on the go using apps and searching my favorite sites for fresh meal ideas. After getting all of my ideas together, I jot down the ideas in my makeshift meal plan for the week using the notes app on my iPhone.
