Summer is winding down, and back-to-school weeknight madness is right around the corner – or it may be here already for some of you (sigh). 'Tis the season for more activities, homework and picking up the kiddos from school.

Here's a way to take one headache off the table: plan ahead for what's for dinner. Start simple by preparing one Tastefully Simple meal on Tuesday nights the whole family will love.

Why not try the Bayou Chicken Lettuce Wraps? It comes together in a flash and everyone will love it! This dish offers maximum flexibility with a minimum of fuss. Kids don't like mushrooms?
