Now that school is back in session, our nights are busier than ever! Between the after-school activities, homework, and impatient hungry kids…it’s hard to find the time to prepare a meal that they will love and is good for my family.

And to be completely honest with you, on some of those busy nights, I’ve relied on McDonald’s! I know, I know, brutal right?? Lol!

 

 

That is why I love a good sheet pan dinner! So easy to prepare, fewer dishes and it’s puts smiles on my family’s faces! I only had to grab 3 ingredients from the store and the rest was in my pantry.

Plus, does this recipe just scream Fall? I’m ready!!!!
