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.
There are two great recipes and step-by-step instructions to create your own apple masterpieces in the October issue of Celebrate Cooking. Also in this issue, there is a coupon for $1.50 off Apples (Granny Smith – 3 lb or Red Delicious – 5 lb bag) when you buy TWO 4 oz bags of Kraft Caramels.
I am excited to see that this week’s ad theme – back by popular demand – is the Brookshire’s One Cent Sale. This week’s penny ad is packed with lots of popular items – all priced at just 1 penny when you buy the first one at regular price. Come to Brookshire’s this week and stock up on your favorite “One Cent” items. Now that’s a deal you’ll find is hard to pass up!!!
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.
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).
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.
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.
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’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!
