Menu Ideas From the Brookshire's Ad

A meal plan is a great way to save money and not waste food.

I want to show you that as long as you are intentional in your shopping and cooking, you will save money on your grocery bill regardless if you use coupons or not. Generally, the cost of the whole meal will be less than or equal to the tip you leave at a restaurant.

These menu ideas are based on a family of 4 and taken directly from the Brookshire's circulars.

This week you could feed your family quite a lot of soups and salads:

Pizza & Carrots w/Dressing (6.66+.99+1.5)(6.66+.99+.5)
Use:  Tombstone Pizza x 2, Mini Peeled Carrots, Wish-Bone Dressing

Tuna Salad Sandwiches & Chips(.69+1.5+2.99+1.5+3.49)(.69+1.5+2.99+1.5+2.74)
Use:  Green Onions (save tops for later), Chicken of the Sea Tuna x 2, Mrs. Baird's Bread, Calidad Tortilla Chips, Hellmann's Mayonnaise

Baked Chicken, Black Eyed Peas, & Cabbage (5.99+.69+.69+1)
Use:  Deli Rotisserie Chicken (pull off leftovers and save for later and use carcass and onion tops to make stock), Food Club Black Eyed Peas x 2, Cabbage 1lb.

Chicken Salad Sandwiches & Grapes (2.5)
Use:  Leftover Chicken, Leftover Onions, Leftover Bread, Leftover Mayo, Grapes x 2lbs

Tomato & Okra Gumbo w/ Toast Points(2.38)
Use:  PictSweet Frozen Tomatoes & Okra, stock made earlier, and leftover bread

Baked Potatoes & Salad (1.98+3+1.25)
Use:  Idaho Baking Potatoes 2lb., Fresh Express Salad, Wish-Bone Dressing, Food Club Cheese (e-deal this week)

Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese (.69+.69)
Use:  Food Club Tomatoes x 2, leftover onions, leftover bread, leftover cheese

That's around $40.18 or $5.74 per meal or $1.44 per person per meal if you are not using coupons.
If you are using coupons then your totals will look more like $38.43 or $5.49 per meal or $1.37 per person per meal.
