Back to school. I can’t believe it’s already here.

Back to school hasn’t been a big deal around out house. Until this year. Abbi will be starting school soon, and although it’s just pre-school, I’m realizing how much our routines are going to change. Now starts the drop off and pick up. And the activities. We are normally homebodies, so venturing out several days a week is going to be a new thing for us.

I’m seeing some simplifying in our future. Especially when it comes to dinnertime.

Thank goodness for some great ideas from friends. You see – I was talking with my partners in crime, Carrian from Sweet Basil and Kristy from Sweet Treats and More were talking about doing another blog party. (I think I’m loving these blog parties – this might become a monthly thing around here!) We were throwing out ideas, and Carrian had the great idea to do a back to school dinner theme. And let’s face it – when it comes to simplifying, it often means taking some help from the store. We pulled together a group of our favorite blogging friends, and decided to do a back to school dinner party with our favorite Pillsbury products. (Who can resist a crescent roll?)

Back to School Dinner Party with Pillsbury

I’m excited to be partying with Christy from The Girl Who Ate Everything, Ashton from Something Swanky, Nikki from Chef in Training, Kristy from Sweet Treats and More, Carrian from Sweet Basil and Jocelyn from Inside BruCrew Life. I have actually been lucky enough to meet every one of these amazing ladies, even though some of them are across the country from me.

So make sure you click the links or pictures below to see what everyone is bringing to our virtual party. This is a meal I wish we were having in person, because I’m pretty much in love with everything on the menu!

I decided to add the side dish. And after I committed, I realized – I am the worst at side dishes. Seriously. We will usually do a simple green salad, or steamed or roasted veggies. But let’s be honest – the kids usually are not all about the veggies. At least mine aren’t. So that got me thinking – what could I do to jazz up a vegetable side dish? Wrap them in crescent rolls!

Seriously, I think you could wrap anything in crescent rolls and it would make it better. And luckily my idea wasn’t too crazy, because they actually ended up delicious!! I added gouda because I had these green beans on the mind, but I really think you could add your favorite cheese here and it would totally work. And hey – with this side dish, you don’t have to worry about a bread side dish – you’ve got both in one!

I hope you enjoy our virtual dinner party and get some great ideas for making back to school a little easier!

    I’m having a Halloween party these will be perfect to make and set on the buffet. I’ve already tried them and hot and cold and they are very good.

  12. Nannette says:

    could you assembly the Bundles ahead of time cover them and them bake them just before for your dinner party? I would like to take them to our family Thanksgiving Dinner

    • Deborah says:

      I think it would depend on how far ahead of time – the rolls may dry out a little bit, but I’m guessing it would be fine.
