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.

I thought this week was particularly good for feeding your family on a budget.

This week you could make:
  1. Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, & Greens Beans
  2. Chicken in a Cloud w/Fries
  3. Spaghetti, Salad, & Garlic Bread
  4. Chicken Noodle Soup & Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
  5. Corny Dogs, Tater Tots, & Broccoli
  6. Sausage & Sweet Potatoes and Stewed Apples
  7. Sausage & White Bean Cassoulet
  8. French Onion Soup
  9. Hopping John & Cornbread
  10. Spaghetti Carbonara & Salad
  11. Bacon, Avocado, Ranch Sandwiches & Tomato Soup
  12. Breakfast for Supper:  Muffins, Bacon, Yogurt, and Apple Slices
