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 and using Brookshire's Match-ups.

This week you could make:

  • Slow Cooked Cola Glazed Spare Ribs, Wedge Salad, & Nectarines
  • Grilled Ribs, Carrot Salad, & Grilled Onions
  • Sausage & Peppers, Roasted Onions, & Garlic Bread
  • Hot Dogs, Mac & Cheese, and Peaches
  • Pigs in a Blanket, Green Grapes, & Chips
  • Tuna Pasta Bake & Cantaloupe
  • Italian Pork Chops, Sauteed Mushrooms, & Green Beans
  • Spaghetti w/Italian Sausage, Salad, & Breadsticks
  • Burgers, Carrots & Hummus, and Chips
  • Chicken Fajita Salad
  • Beef Fajitas & Refried Beans
  • Individual Tomato Pies (using biscuits instead of pie crust) & Salad
  • Hummus Wraps, Red Grapes, and Chips
  • Sausage Sandwiches, Onion Rings, & Strawberries
  • Broccoli & Tuna Alfredo w/Leftover Breadsticks
  • French Onion Soup & Salad
  • Pork Chops, Biscuits w/Red Eye Gravy, & Eggs
  • S.O.S. (Sausage & Gravy over Toast)
  • Chicken in a Cloud
  • Southwest Chicken Pasta
  • Chicken Nuggets
Leftover Recipe:  Use any leftover meat and veggies to make lettuce wraps.
