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.

Pizza, Breadsticks, & Apple Slices
Use:  The Real Big Deal, 5lb. bag Apples

Garlic & Herb Pork Roast, Stewed Apples, Roasted Potatoes
Use:  Hormel Garlic & Herb Pork Roast, Leftover Apples, 5lb. bag Potatoes

Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Mac & Cheese, Tangelos
Use:  Hormel BBQ Pork Roast, Nature's Own Bread,  Country Crock Mac & Cheese, 3lb. bag Tangelos

Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Tomato & Cucumber Salad
Use:  Hormel Refrigerated Entree Meatloaf, Leftover Potatoes, Grape Tomatoes, Seedless Cucumber

Beef Tips, Rice, Orange Salad
Use:  Hormel Refrigerated Entree, Country Crock Rice, 1/2 bag Fresh Express Salad, Leftover Tangelos, Dressing from TRBD

Lasagna & Strawberry Spinach Salad
Use:  Stouffer's Lasagna, Leftover Salad, 1lb. Strawberries

Chicken Chow Mein
Use:  Tei Pei Chicken Chow Mein Entrees

Pancakes & Sausage
Use:  Food Club Pancake Mix, Food Club Syrup, Hormel Little Sizzlers

Shrimp & Mushroom Pasta
Use:  Skinner Pasta x 2, Sea Best Shrimp, Food Club Cream of Mushroom Soup, Food Club Tomato Sauce x 2

That's 9 meals for around $70.52 - $80.52 or $7.84 - $8.95 per meal.
