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.

This week you could make:

  1. Chicken Fajita Salad
  2. Black Eyed Peas w/Cornbread
  3. Breakfast for Supper - Sausage, Eggs, Cinnamon Rolls, and Yogurt
  4. Pizza & Salad
  5. Pork Chops, Black Bean & Corn Salad, and Mexican Rice
  6. Quesadillas & Vegetable Soup
  7. Nachos & Pear Slices
  8. Roast, Rice, & Gravy & Bacon Salad
  9. BBQ Baked Potatoes and Mixed Vegetables
  10. Chicken Nuggets, Mashed Potatoes, & Green Beans

  1. Thanks for posting this!

    Question: If I purchased the Real Big Deal last week, since it is the same one this week, I can't get it again, can I?

    1. As far as I am aware, there is no limit on purchasing The Real Big Deal. I have purchased two in one transaction before and it worked just fine. Usually if there is a limit, it will be stated in the ad or on the tag in front of the item. :)

  2. Oh wow, I guess I just assumed that it was 1 per household!
    Thanks so much for clearing that up for me! Looks like I'm headed to the store then, because my husband can eat his weight in mexican food. :)
