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 comfort food for cool weather:

Sweet Potato Chili (I have made this and it is YUMMY!) (2.19)
Use:  2 sweet potatoes, Bush's Best Kidney Beans

Frito Pie (5)(4)
Use:  Frito's, Wolf Brand Chili x 2

Applekraut Smoked Sausage (cook with a little apple cider vinegar) & Cornbread (5.13)
Use:  Food Club Applesauce, Eckrich Sausage, 1lb. Cabbage, Food Club Cornbread

Beans, Greens, & Cornbread (4.12)
Use:  Bush's Best Beans x 2, Food Club Cornbread, PictSweet Turnip Greens

Sweet Potato Biscuit BBQ Sliders, Cabbage & Apple Slaw, and Fries (12.22)
Use:  1lb. Sweet Potatoes, Food Club Pancake Mix, Lloyd's BBQ, 10lb. bag Potatoes, 1lb. Cabbage, 1/2lb. Apples

Baked Potatoes & Caesar Salad (5)
Use:  Leftover Potatoes, Food Club Shredded Cheese, Fresh Express Caesar Salad Mix

Potato Soup
Use:  Leftover Potatoes, Leftover Cheese

Pancakes & Hashbrowns (2)
Use:  Leftover Food Club Pancake Mix, Leftover Potatoes, Food Club Syrup

That's 8 meals for a total of around $35.66 if you are not using coupons - or $4.46 per meal or $1.11 per person per meal.
If you are using coupons then your total would be more like $33.91 or $4.24 per meal or $1.06 per person per meal.
