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.

Lasagna & Salad
Use:  Food Club Lasagna, Kraft Dressing,  Fresh Express Salad

Spaghetti & Salad
Use:  Food Club Pasta, Hunt's Pasta Sauce, Fresh Express Salad, Food Club Parmesan, Leftover Dressing

Breakfast for Supper - Sweet Rolls, Yogurt, Sausage, Broiled Parmesan Tomatoes
Use:  Pillsbury Sweet Rolls, Yoplait Yogurt Cups x 4, Hormel Maple Sausage Links, 1lb. Hot House Tomatoes, Leftover Parmesan

BBQ Chicken, Beans, Baked Potatoes
Use:  The Real Big Deal, Food Club Cheese

Pot Roast w/Vegetables
Use:  3lb. Rump Roast, Mini Peeled Carrots, Leftover Potatoes

Corny Dogs & Mixed Vegetables
Use:  State Fair Corny Dogs, Food Club Steamin' Easy Frozen Vegetables x 2

Cheesy Dogs & Mini Carrots
Use:  Jennie-O Turkey Franks, Food Club Buns, Mini Carrots, Leftover Cheese, Leftover Dressing

That's 7 meals for around $49 - $51.95 or $7 - $7.42 per meal.
