My kids start back to school next week, so long lazy summer days! I’ll definitely miss the slower pace and flexible schedule and to be honest I know they will too. With our schedules immediately becoming more structured I’ve started planning out how I can feed my kids quick and easy, yet protein filled meals.

Some afternoons are just so busy after school that we hardly have time to eat a full dinner before heading out the door again. Hectic doesn’t even begin to describe our schedules between having kids in preschool, elementary and high-school…and those are just the kids still living with us. Our calendar is a rainbow coded explosion of activities here, there and everywhere.

As much as I being able to provide my kids with a homemade meal, some days you just need some help. I discovered Sandwich Bros. Flatbread Pocket Sandwiches while shopping at my local Kroger store and just had to give them a try. I purchased the Chicken Melts variety and I’m happy to report they were a HUGE hit!

Sharing a tip for those extra busy dinner times. Make a quick side dish that can be refrigerated such as pasta salad on Sunday. Pop this into a resealable bowl and for the next couple of days you have a simple dish to serve alongside something quick and easy such as a Sandwich Bros. Flatbread Pocket Sandwich. These sandwiches are microwaveable and ready in just a minute, you can easily serve them and be back out the door.
