Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The countdown until school starts is happening at our house. We have been SO busy getting ready. My oldest is starting Jr High! I just can’t believe it. Even when I was registering him I remembered walking down the halls of my jr high like it was yesterday. It is so weird to be a parent and watch your kids grow up so fast. And then you remember that you are just getting old. 😉

With school starting I am all about easy and delicious weeknight meals. Swedish meatballs are such a classic perfect meal!

And the best part… my entire family LOVES them!
