One of my favorite snacks my nana makes around the holidays is her jalapeño pepper jelly with cream cheese and a cracker. She makes her jalapeno jelly, pours it over soften cream cheese and then places a slice of cream cheese with jelly on a cracker. You can do it with your favorite jelly and use fat-free cream cheese for a little lighter snack. You can pick up some Philadelphia Cream Cheese on sale at your local Brookshire’s this week!
“What’s your favorite holiday pie?” We asked that question to our partners and friends on Facebook and sure enough, everyone had a passionate opinion. In third place, we had a tie between Buttermilk and Chocolate pie. Pecan pie took second place by the margin of a half slice, and for the top spot, the hands down winner was the classic, always delicious Pumpkin pie.
Since Pecan pie came in a close second, we thought we would give you a deal on pecans this week at Brookshire’s! Ellis Pecans – bits, halves or pieces, 6 oz bag – $3.49.
So no matter which pie you choose to bake, we’re sure there is someone in your family that will say it’s their favorite!
The “Real Big Deal” on the front page of this week’s Brookshire’s circular offers 4 free items simply by purchasing a Hormel Snack Party Tray. I’ve become accustomed to looking forward to the “Real Big Deal” when it is advertised every other week. I like the excitement of receiving my weekly ad and discovering what I can take home for free.
This week the 4 free items include a package of Hillshire Farm Little Smokies, a can of party peanuts, a bag of Chex Mix and a package of chip dip. These are all items I can use at a holiday party. And the offer is so easy – they’re free simply by purchasing a Hormel Snack Party Tray. Finding bargains like this “Real Big Deal” at Brookshire’s really helps out my food budget when it comes to party planning this holiday season.

One cup of whole cranberries has 5 grams of fiber! Cranberries can be eaten raw for a tart pop in your mouth or made into a sweet and tart cranberry sauce.
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire sure sound nice, but who has time for that? Sometimes it’s nice to spend less time in the kitchen so you can enjoy the party. Chex Cereal has always been one of my favorite go-to recipes. You can add just about anything to Chex Cereal and you are ready to go!
After the party, the leftovers make for a nice surprise in the kids’ lunchboxes. Pick up the November issue of Celebrate Cooking Magazine for a free offer from General Mills.

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!
Brookshire’s is the place to get your supplies for Halloween. Brookshire’s has an assortment of candy on sale along with non-edible treats, like spooky drink holders and Halloween rubber goods. If you need something to carry all those yummy treats in, Brookshire’s has a lighted pumpkin basket that is on sale. You can also pick up a safety flashlight to ensure a safe trip of trick or treating.
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.
