New York Strip Steak is featured on the front page of Brookshire’s ad this week. I’ve already suggested to Karen that she pick up a couple of extra packages from the meat department when she goes shopping tomorrow.
This particular cut of meat is great for grilling, pan frying and broiling. Karen is always eager to let me do the outdoor grilling, and so far I’ve never ruined a piece of strip steak from Brookshire’s. Strip steak seems to come off my grill flavorful and perfectly tender every time.
Honeycrisp apples are my favorite apples; when fall rolls around I am always looking for them in the store. Honeycrisp apples are sweet but yet a little tart too. They make the perfect apple for slicing for a salad or using to bake. Honeycrisp apples are on sale at Brookshire’s!

I love the change that Autumn brings; nice weather, beautiful colors and fall cooking! This year, my daughter and I are going to attempt to make caramel apples and mini-candied apples.

Have you tried Brookshire’s Best Bread? If not, you should because it is really good! You can get Banana Walnut Bread, Blackberry Cobbler Bread, Blueberry Bread, Carrot Spice Bread, Cranberry Orange Bread, Lemon Poppy seed Bread Peach Praline Bread, and Pound Cake. These breads make a tasty dessert with a cup of coffee.
From personal experience, I highly recommend the Blackberry Cobbler bread. If you have not tried these breads, pick up a loaf while they are on sale!
Have you tried a Fall Squash yet? Today is the first day of fall so pick up either a butternut squash, acorn squash, or spaghetti squash. My favorite is spaghetti squash.
To cook the squash, pre-heat your oven to 375°F, cut the squash in half, remove the seeds, place the squash in a baking dish with water, and bake for 1 hour. Rake the squash out of the skin with a fork and add a little butter and salt. It’s easy, delicious, and low in calories. One cup of cooked spaghetti squash has 42 calories, 10 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, and 1 gram of protein. Pick up any fall squash while they are on sale this week at Brookshire’s.
When I was in grade school, I loved it when my mother would pack “really cool stuff” in my lunchbox! Now as a mom, I am more concerned about packing a healthier lunch for my daughter, than giving her all the “cool stuff” she would like.
