“Real Food Meets Reality” Menu Plan: Nov 28-Dec 4


Real Food Menu Plan for November 28-Dec 4: Easy and delicious meal ideas that the whole family will love. Posted every Friday at Thriving Home.

Sponsored by Hy-Vee (Columbia).

Our family enjoyed the holiday respite and over-the-top good food, but it’s time to get back to the “real food meets reality” basics. This week, I’m focusing on some leaner dinner options like Hearty Vegetable Soup and Baked Chicken, but also throwing in some old family favorites like Beefy Baked Ravioli and Taco Bar.
