With the busy school year ahead and kids needing shuttled from one activity to another, parents can often be found picking up dinner in a paper bag through a drive thru window. However, if you don't want to hit the drive-thru every night, Hy-Vee will be holding classes for freezer meals. They're cheaper, healthier, and practically just as easy.

Registration is underway for Simple Fix (freezer meal) classes at the Hy-Vee on Harrison in Quincy. You must be registered by July 29, so time is running out. These classes are designed to create convenient freezer meals, with Hy-Vee's registered dietitian.

Each meal will cost between ten and fourteen dollars and serves four to eight people. There are several meals to choose from, but you must pick a minimum of two classes to be a part of this event. This class's recipes are:

  • Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Tenderloin ($12)
  • Orange Marmalade Chicken ($12)
  • Stuffed Acorn Squash ($14) (Vegan)
  • Mushroom and Feta Burgers ($14)
  • Grilled Teriyaki Chicken ($10) (slow cooker)
