Shop the Sale: Brookshire’s Best Bread


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!



Shop the Sale: Spaghetti Squash


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.



Shop the Sale: Lunchables


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.

While I’m not a fan of Lunchables, every now and then, I’ll sneak one into her lunch box to brighten her day…especially when I’m running short on time! Check out September’s issue of Celebrate Cooking Magazine for a 50¢ Off Oscar Mayer Lunchables (Fun Pack or Complete – Selected Varieties).



Shop the Sale: Chicken of the Sea


When planning your shopping trips to Brookshire’s this week, be sure to add canned tuna to your list.  Chicken of the Sea tuna is on sale this week and is featured on the front page of the ad. Pick up a few extra cans to have on hand.  

This time of year most families are busier than ever now that school is back in session.  Canned tuna can be a real time saver.  First, tuna sandwiches are always a big hit for busy family members on the go.  And if you’re in a time crunch but still want a delicious, hot meal, a can of tuna added to Tuna Helper makes a great main dish.



Shop the Sale: Keeping Hydrated


It is important to stay hydrated especially in this hot weather! If your son is heading out to football practice then make sure he has a drink to keep him hydrated. Dasani water, Gatorade Thirst Quenchers, and Propel Fitness Waters are all on sale at Brookshire’s. Pick up your child’s favorite drink to keep them hydrated in the hot sun.



Shop the Sale: Food Club Yogurt


With the kiddos going back to school this week, I need to get stocked up on breakfast, lunchbox and snack foods. If your school mornings are anything like mine, they can get a little crazy! When we are having, you know, ‘one of those mornings’ – it’s smoothies for breakfast. Smoothie are quick, easy to make and nutritious.

I start with Food Club Yogurt; which happens to be on sale this week, orange juice or milk, frozen strawberries, a banana, local honey or Stevia and a few ice cubes.

Mix in a blender, pour into to-go cups and we are out the door.  

Here are a few of my favorite smoothie mix-ins used in different combination:
Strawberries
Bananas (fresh or frozen)
Blueberries
Apple juice
Vanilla
Vanilla yogurt
Stevia
Local honey
Nutmeg
Milk
Orange juice
Flax seed
Rice protein powder
Frozen mixed berries 


Shop the Sale: Food Club Large Eggs


Here’s a money-saving tip:  Food Club Large Eggs are featured as a super advertised item on the front page of the Brookshire’s ad this week.  Eggs are an essential grocery item on my wife’s weekly shopping list, so it’s always a treat when they are on sale. 

Be sure to stock up on eggs this week!

Shop the Sale: Want S’more Ideas


For several years now, when the weather is right, I take my kids camping. We pitch the tents, unpack the coolers and build a fire every night. Of course, our cookouts are not complete without the traditional s’mores! My kids love to toast their own marshmallows because they both want them toasted differently; one—lightly toasted and the other—fire charcoaled! It’s really amazing how something so simple as s’mores can bring the family fun time together. 

Now, Brookshire’s is celebrating summer and s’mores with a special offer for you. Enjoy FREE Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows when you buy one Nabisco Honey Maid Grahams and one Hershey’s Milk Chocolate. See the July Celebrate Cooking magazine for this special offer. 

If you are feeling creative, let your family make different varieties of s’mores: 

Add peanut butter to your graham crackers
Use a chocolate graham cracker
Add toasted coconut
Use cookies in place of graham crackers
Add different fruits to your s’mores: bananas, strawberries or peaches
Add pretzels
