Weekly Menu Plan + Top 5 “Stock Up and Save”


Sponsored by Hy-Vee (Columbia)

Eggs are on a killer sale this week.  You’ll notice that they are listed in the “Stock Up and Save” section of this post.  While eggs don’t have a very long shelf life, you can find some great recipes that use eggs that are freezer friendly, like Spinach and Bacon Quiche, Mini Bacon and Spinach Quiche, Instant Homemade Breakfast Sandwiches, or Baked Egg Cups…just to name a few.  These would be great to load up your freezer.  And even if eggs aren’t on sale in your area, we hope you can still put a few things in your freezer this week.

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.

(FF) = Indicates a freezer-friendly recipe. Save time and money by doubling and freezing this recipe for another dinner later. Read Freezer Cooking 101 to learn more about this helpful strategy.
