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.

Manwich, Cheetos, & Strawberries
Use:  Nature's Own Buns, 3lb. chub Ground Beef (use 1lb.), 2lb. strawberries, Cheetos, Manwich

Poached Salmon, Steamed Asparagus, & Buttered Potatoes
Use:  Food Club Canned Potatoes x 2, 2lb. Salmon, 2lb. Asparagus

Pizza & Fruity Salad
Use:  Totinos x 3, Leftover Strawberries, Salad Greens

Fajitas & Beans
Use:  The Real Big Deal, Food Club Pinto Beans x 2

Beef Tips & Mushrooms over Rice
Use:  Hormel Refrigerated Entree, Mushrooms, Food Club Rice 1lb.

Hot Dogs & Chips
Use:  Bar-S Franks, Food Club Buns, Cheetos

Smoked Sausage Sandwiches & Mixed Vegetables
Use:  Eckrich Sausage, Nature's Own Buns, Food Club Mixed Vegetables x 2

Hamburgers & Chips
Use:  Leftover Ground Beef, Leftover Nature's Own Buns, Leftover Cheetos

That's 8 meals for around $61.86 - $65.16 or $7.73 - $8.15 per meal.
