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.



Don't have a Brookshire's near you?  Well you're in luck!  Food On The Table is a menu planning website that uses store ads in your area to help you correlate your menu with your local sales.  Just click on the above image and get started with this FREE service!


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:

Mayo Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Cupcakes
Use:  Boneless Pork Chops x 4lb., 5lb bag Potatoes, PictSweet Frozen Green Beans x 2, Hellmann's Mayonnaise, Pillsbury Cake Mix

Curry in a Hurry
Use:  Leftover Mayo Pork Chops, 5lb bag Apples

Sausage & Potatoes
Use:  John Morrell Smoked Sausage & leftover Potatoes

Lasagna & Mixed Vegetables
Use:  Banquet Family Sized Lasagna, PictSweet Frozen Mixed Vegetables x 2

Quesadillas & Pantry Tomato Soup
Use:  Mission Tortillas, Food Club Cheese, Hunt's Tomatoes x 2

Baked Potatoes & Broccoli
Use:  Leftover Potatoes, Leftover Cheese, PictSweet Frozen Broccoli x 2

Chicken Pot Pies & Baked Apples
Use:  Banquet Pot Pies x 4, leftover Apples

That's 7 meals for a total of around $37.04 without coupons or $5.29 per meal or $1.32 per person per meal.
If you are using coupons, then your total will be closer to $35.95 or $5.14 per meal or $1.28 per person per meal.
