I'm not personally a big user of the crockpot but I know it works for many people.

Another thought....in August you could start planning dinner leftovers that can be frozen and then pulled to microwave on the hot September evenings. Pulled pork is one item that comes to mind -- just toss it with some bbq sauce and pile it on a bun. Add a quick salad or coleslaw and it's a meal (maybe some grilled corn too??).

A big batch of taco meat can be reheated quickly to use for tacos or a taco salad -- kid-friendly food.

You could make a big tortellini salad earlier in the day (before it gets too hot to boil water and cook the tortellini, LOL) then let the salad marinate in the refrigerator til dinner time. Mmmm, good.

Grocery store rotisserie chickens can be your friend too. (Costco's is my personal favorite, and they are very reasonably priced). Add a salad and you're done (Trader Joe's has some great bagged salads -- easy on the cook). Grab 2 chickens and make chicken salad or wraps or a chef's salad or a Caesar chicken salad for additional meals. :-)
