Wasn't it just yesterday that summer started and the kiddos were free for the summer? How is it that autumn is almost here again and they're already heading back to the classroom?

I'm really not sure where this year went, and thankfully my own kiddo isn't heading to school this year (can she please always stay little? Someone get me a time machine!) but I'm here to help you out with some amazing recipes for you moms to cook up real quick for dinner on school nights! C'mon, I know those fast and easy meals are some of your favorites since they take minimal time and energy, and kids love them! Especially these!
While grocery shopping at Walmart the other day I grabbed a couple different TysonⓇ products and threw them into the cart (I found the chicken in the frozen section and the lunchmeat in the lunchmeat section near the deli). Things have been crazy busy around our home lately and sometimes as a busy mom I need quick and easy, yet nutritious meal solutions for my little family. Two different dinner options, one that older kids and adults prefer, and then another that is perfect for everyone, and smaller children love it as much as adults! Tyson® Grilled & ReadyⓇ Chicken, Hillshire Farm® Farm Classics® Lunchmeats and Pesto that's nut free so your kid can take the leftovers to lunch the next day if they want and not have to worry about food allergies of their own or for their friends. These recipes are simple, convenient meal solutions and are sure winners!



Italian Sub Buns

Mozzarella Ball (for slicing)

Fresh Tomato (for slicing)


1 cup fresh Basil

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

2 teaspoons garlic

1/2 cup olive oil

Okay, let’s get the pesto ready first... Throw some basil, parmesan cheese, a pinch of salt and pepper, garlic and your olive oil into a blender and blend until you have a nice consistency and it's well blended. (*hint: it's usually easier to blend half of the basil, then add the next half once the first half is well blended). It's easy and so tasty on these sandwiches and on pasta too!

Next, heat up however many pieces of Tyson® Grilled & ReadyⓇ Chicken you want (just follow the directions on the back of the bag). While the chicken is heating up, slice your mozzarella ball and tomato and set aside. Once your chicken is thoroughly heated, put your chicken in a sub bun, top with pesto, add some tomato and mozzarella slices and enjoy! So Simple and delicious! This is one of our favorite meals!


Hillshire Farm® Farm Classics® Lunchmeats - Honey Roasted Turkey Breast

Hawaiian sub buns

Swiss Cheese Slices

Dijon Mustard

1 stick Real Butter

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F, now peel apart your Hawaiian sub buns in two, I like to try and keep all of the tops and bottoms attached until after they're done baking. Spread Dijon mustard on the inside of the bottom layer of Hawaiian sub buns. Next, layer your Swiss cheese and Hillshire Farm® Farm Classics® Lunchmeats on the bottom Hawaiian sub buns layer. Cover the inside of the top layer of Hawaiian sub buns with Dijon mustard and lay on top of the lunchmeat and cheese. Cover the top with aluminum foil and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. The cheese will be nice and gooey when you take it out of the oven, be careful not to burn yourself and take a stick of butter and spread along the top to soften the Hawaiian sub buns. Next, slice them into sliders or small subs and enjoy! This meal is always a hit with everyone who tries it!
