It is back-to-school time, which means it is time to return to a mealtime routine. Our family has a tradition where we allow each child to pick out a special back-to-school dinner.

My son requested Chicken ‘Sketti. That is what he calls an old favorite recipe of ours: Chicken Patty Parmesan served on top of spaghetti. My daughter usually requests sushi.

I do not want to make it from scratch, taking the time to bread the chicken, so I use frozen chicken patties. I also used a jar of spaghetti sauce. There is no shame in making things quick and easy in a limited amount of time. Plus, it makes everyone happy!

I serve it with fruit and a side salad. You can also mix vegetables into the tomato sauce or serve it over a different type of pasta.

In addition to preparing back-to-school dinners, I have lunches to pack.

My daughter brings lunch from home every day. She enjoys meat and cheese sandwiches. See tips for packing lunches for teens.

This lunch consisted of a whole wheat sandwich with turkey and cheese, dill pickle, and lettuce. Carrot and celery sticks accompanied by a ranch dip in a little container. There were also fresh raspberries and mango. A cheese stick topped off the lunch.
