Weekly Menu Plan + Top 5 Hy-Vee Sales (8.9.19)

By Polly

The theme of this week’s menu plan is, “Stock your freezer for back to school.” Every recipe we’ve selected can easily be doubled and frozen for a meal down the road. Make sure to follow our Facebook and/or Instagram accounts for more ideas all month long!

Our free Weekly Menu Plan is here to help you save time and money, eat healthier, and bring your family together around the table. Even if you don’t live near a Hy-Vee, you can still use our plan for the meal ideas. Here’s what you’ll find…

  • Recipes You’ll Love: Our family-friendly recipes are simple and made with recognizable, real food ingredients. Pick and choose what works for you.
  • Top 5 Weekly Sales: Don’t waste time scouring the sales. We’ve done it for you! Our menu plan is based around the Top 5 real food (no junk!) sale items we find at Hy-Vee that week, so you can save money by shopping smartly. If you don’t have a Hy-Vee, no sweat. Our plan will still work great!
  • Stock Up and Save: To save even more money, stock up on those Top 5 hot Hy-Vee deals and store them for later using our instructions.

    I don’t have an Instant Pot, so what else can be used instead? And we don’t eat pork! What substitute can I use instead?

      I just added in a link to our slow cooker chicken and cheese taquitos in the menu plan, so hopefully that helps. Some ideas instead of the pork: You could substitute in ground beef taco meat using our Homemade Taco Seasoning or make our Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Sandwiches. I hope that helps!
