It’s crazy to think that we’re already transitioning into the fall season! Where has the time gone?!
The arrival of fall and start of back to school seems like a new beginning. A new school year means many little details to iron out, and sometimes it seems like there are too many pieces to keep track of. Loads of homework, laundry, and busy evenings. I don’t know about you all, but there are days when the last thing I want to worry about is dinner preparation. Having an easy and quick dinner option definitely makes life much easier while we are getting used to the new schedule again.
Gorton’s Seafood makes back to school meals stress-free. @gortonsseafood has an awesome selection of frozen seafood- great for a speedy lunch or a fuss-free weeknight dinner. It comes in a resealable bag to lock in freshness. It’s high quality- no fillers, no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, no hydrogenated oils, and no antibiotics. The Crispy fish sticks from Gorton’s Seafood is our favorite. Love that it can be used in varieties of recipes for a wholesome satisfying meal.
With no fuss at all, (you don’t even have to thaw them!), and the kiddos can help place them on top! Just preheat the oven to 425°F. Place the fish sticks on a baking tray. In just 15 minutes crunchy and tasty fish sticks were ready.
We all know it’s a struggle to feed kids a satisfying meal—especially when you’re in a time crunch. Sharing these easy to make recipes that can definitely save your sanity in a pinch.

- Make the creamy dressing by combining all the ingredients together into a small bowl. You will need sour cream, mayo, chopped cilantro, sliced green onions, fresh lime juice, and a few seasonings.
