Having said that, Hy-Vee is having a great sale on chicken breast, beef roast, and pork tenderloin. Be sure to check out the “Stock Up and Save” section at the bottom of this post for these items and more. And as an added bonus, we’ll give you practical ways to use and store each item. For now though, enjoy the weekly menu. Our goal is to help you on your journey from the freezer to the table and everything in between.
