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 ideas are taken directly from the Brookshire's circulars.

Jambalaya & Cornbread
Use:  The Real Big Deal

Barbecue Baked Potatoes & Baked Beans
Use:  Lloyd's BBQ Tub, 10lb. bag Potatoes, Bush's Baked Beans

Pulled Pork Sandwiches & Fries
Use:  Boston Butt Pork Roast x 3lb., Sunbeam Bread, Leftover Potatoes, & BBQ Sauce from Lloyd's Deal

Pork Wraps & Corn on the Cob
Use:  Leftover Pork Roast, Mission Tortillas, Food Club Frozen Corn on the Cob

Corned Beef & Cabbage
Use:  Leftover Potatoes, Cabbage x 2lb., Corned Beef x 2lbs., Yellow Onion

Corned Beef Hash & Yogurt
Use:  Leftover Corned Beef, Leftover Potatoes, Yellow Onion, Activia Yogurt

Lasagna & Salad
Use:  Smart Ones Lasagna x 4, Fresh Express Salad

Tomato Soup & Grapes
Use:  Food Club Tomatoes x 2, Grapes x 2lbs.

Chicken Stir Fry over Rice

Tuna Sandwiches & Kiwi Fruit

That's 11 meals for between $57.82 - $72.01 or $5.26 - $6.55 per meal.
