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 would 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:

Tuna Casserole and Peas
Use:  Tuna Helper x 2, Chicken of the Sea x 2, Food Club canned Peas x 2, Ruffles

Baked Potatoes & Baked Beans
Use:  5lb bag Potatoes, Van Camp's Pork & Beans x 2

Pork Roast, Cabbage, & Mashed Potatoes
Use:  Hormel Pork Roast x 4lbs., leftover potatoes, Cabbage x 2lb.

Bubble & Squeak
Use:  Leftover Cabbage & leftover Potato

Cabbage Rolls & Roasted Potatoes
Use:  Cabbage x 1lb., leftover pork roast, 5lb. bag Potatoes, Red Gold Tomatoes

Buffalo Wings, Corn, & Chips
Use:  Tyson Wings, Food Club canned Corn x 2, leftover Ruffles

Pizza, Salad, & Potato Wedges
Use:  Red Baron Pizza from Wings deal, leftover Potatoes, Fresh Express Salad

Burritos, Rice, & Beans
Use:  Patio Burritos x 4, Hamburger Helper Mexican Rice (no meat necessary), Ranch Style Beans x 2

Hot Dogs, Chips & Mixed Veg
Use:  Bar-S Franks, Brookshire's Buns, leftover Ruffles, Food Club Frozen Mixed Veg x 2

That's 9 meals for a total of around $41.14 if you aren't using coupons.  That's $4.57 per meal or $1.14 per person per meal.

If you are using coupons then your total is more like $40.39 or $4.49 per meal or $1.12 per person per meal.
