Beefy Skillet Dinner
School is back in session which means afterschool activities are too. My daughter is only in pre-k but between dance and Awana, we are already on the go two nights a week. I’m always looking for something easy that I can throw together for dinner. This Beefy Skillet Dinner is one of my go-to meals when I need something quick that my kids will love. Just add a fruit and veggie and dinner is served!
