“Real Food Meets Reality” Menu Plan: December 1-6


For Dec 1-7: A healthy, easy meal plan that the whole family will love every Friday at Thriving Home (thrivinghomeblog.com).

Sponsored by Hy-Vee (Columbia)

I know, I know, I know…it’s hard to think past Thanksgiving right now. I’ll be honest. I’m hosting for the first time (read more about my decision here) and I’ve only got turkey on the brain. But, alas, dinner must still come after said holiday. So, here’s my plan.

If you haven’t tried the Fried Rice recipe, it’s a keeper. So simple and kid-friendly. You can add in any meat or vegetables you like pretty much
