“Real Food Meets Reality” Menu Plan: September 19-25


Real Food Menu Plan: September 19-25--Easy, delicious, and healthy recipes for the whole week!

Sponsored by Hy-Vee (Columbia)

Killer deals this week at Hy-Vee on That’s Smart! frozen veggies ($.89!), russet potatoes ($.99 for a 5lb bag!), eggs ($.99/dozen!), and red seedless grapes ($.99/lb!). So, I’m playing it smart and planning some meals around these Hy-Vee Fuel Saver + Perks specials. Favorites on the menu this week? It’s tough but I’ve personally got to go with the Hearty Vegetable Soup and Apple Cinnamon French Toast.

P.S. Did you know you can have these menu plans emailed to you to weekly? All you have to do is sign up here.
