“Real Food Meets Reality” Menu Plan: August 22-28


August 22-28, 2016: A FREE healthy, easy meal plan that the whole family will love every Friday at Thriving Home (thrivinghomeblog.com).

Sponsored by Hy-Vee (Columbia)

With soccer and baseball practices already in full swing for fall, I’m whipping up quick week night meals like Baked Nachos, Ham and Cheese Sliders, and make-ahead Bacon and Spinach Quiche. And, then, I’m taking it somewhat easy this weekend by utilizing the grill, some leftovers, and my slow cooker. I hope you can find some recipes your family will love this week on our menu plan, too!
