With Mother's Day winding down, but not quite over, I'm still in wanting to take it easy mode. And since it's also the end of the school year for us, things are a bit hectic around our house. So, easy weeknight dinners are where it's at for me right now. 

Keep it Simple Midweek

With only two weeks to go until the summer starts, I need to be able to throw a dinner together quickly. I mean we have recitals, concerts, kindergarten graduations (I could go on and on), so I've been collecting loads of ideas (like these pasta recipes) for easy weeknight dinners. And since I bet I'm not the only mama in the same boat, I thought I would share some of them with you!
