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.

Marinated Baked Chicken, Baked Potatoes, Baked Beans
Use:  The Real Big Deal, Kraft Cheese

Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Mac & Cheese, Cilantro Slaw
Use:  Brookshire's Deli Fried Chicken Deal, Fresh Express Cole Slaw Mix, Kraft Ranch Dressing, Cilantro

Ribs, Corn-on-the-Cob, Steamed Veggies
Use:  Hormel Country Style Ribs x 5lbs, Yellow Corn x 4, Kraft BBQ Sauce, Steamfresh Frozen California Style Veggies x 2

Chicken Fried Rice
Use:  Leftover Chicken, Steamfresh Rice/Veggie Mix x 2

Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
Use:  Hormel Refrigerated Entree, Country Crock Side Dish, PictSweet Green Beans x 2

Beef Tips, Rice, Peas
Use:  Hormel Refrigerated Entree, Country Crock Side Dish, PictSweet Peas x 2

Sausage, Biscuits, Steamfried Potatoes
Use:  Hormel Little Sizzlers, Food Club Biscuits, Leftover Potatoes

Chicken Pasta Salad
Use:  Leftover Chicken, Sizzling Salad x 2

Pot Pie & Mac & Cheese
Use:  Banquet Pot Pie x 4, Kraft Mac & Cheese x 2

That is 9 meals from around $64.58 - $68.58 or $7.17 - $7.62 per meal.

This is a great week to stock up on mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire Sauce, and bbq sauce with coupons.
