Menu Ideas From the Brookshire's Ad

After taking the summer off, I thought it was about time to get back to making a menu plan from the sale 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.

  1. Chili Dogs, Mango Slaw, & Baked Beans
  2. Fried Chicken, French Fries, & Cantaloupe Slices
  3. Fried Chicken Salad w/Garlic Bread
  4. Rotisserie Chicken, Ranch Roasted Potatoes, Green Beans
  5. Black Beans w/Pico de Gallo Guacamole Salsa 
  6. Taquitos, Mexican Corn, & Refried Beans
  7. Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Tater Tots, & Mixed Veg
  8. Grilled Sausage Sandwiches, Broccoli Rice, BBQ Beans
  9. French Bread Pizza & Strawberries
  10. Baked Potatoes and Cabbage & Sausage
  11. Nachos and Peaches
  12. Beanie Weenies, Garlic Bread, & Grapes
  13. Sausage Biscuits, Scrambled Eggs, and Yogurt
  14. Sausage Omelet and Steamfried Potatoes
