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

 



Shop the Sale: Ground Chuck


This week the front page of the Brookshire’s ad is covered up with more fresh items than normal, most of which are at their best prices of the season.  I’m glad to know Brookshire’s is featuring fresh produce and fresh meat items to feed my family. 

Ground chuck is prominently highlighted on the front page of the ad, so I’ve already asked Karen to add “ground chuck” to her shopping list.  I want to grill some burgers this weekend because for me, ground chuck is the best kind of ground meat to choose for juicy and flavorful burgers.  Ground chuck comes from the shoulder and neck area of the cow and usually has an immense amount of flavoring.   Ground chuck is also great for mouth watering meatloaf if you are planning to stay indoors on these hot summer days. 



Shop the Sale: Russet Potatoes


Do you love eating fries with your hamburger or sandwich? We all know that fries are not the most nutritious food, but we love them so much. Have you thought about baking homemade fries instead of buying deep fried French fries? It’s very simple, preheat your oven to 350°F, cut up some russet potatoes, add a little seasoning and oil, and then toss them in the oven for 20 minutes.

Russet potatoes are on sale at Brookshire’s, so pick up a 5 lb bag and enjoy some fries!



Shop the Sale: Sunnybrook Farms Fresh Cut Fruit


Sometimes you have very good intentions on eating healthy, you buy a bunch of different fruits and you are so excited to eat it.  You take the fruit home and then what happens to it? The fruit ends up just sitting there and you never eat it.  A solution to this is to buy fresh cut fruit. At Brookshire’s, Sunnybrook Farms’ fresh cut fruit is on sale.

When fruit is already cut and placed in a container for you, it is so much easier to just grab the container and eat the fruit. Fresh cut fruit is perfect to take to work with you for a healthy lunch or snack. With fresh cut fruit there is no messy cutting or peeling involved; just grab and eat. Another neat thing about Sunnybrook Farms’ fresh cut fruit is that you can get a variety of fruit; you can get grapes, honeydew melon and cantaloupe all in one bowl!



Shop the Sale: Cheerios


Most of the time I cook breakfast for my kids because I’m a fanatic about starting the day off with a good breakfast. However, there are mornings when I just cannot get it together…the back up plan…Cheerios with local honey on top. Good thing Cheerios is on sale, I foresee a busy week coming up!



Shop the Sale: Hormel Pork Baby Back Ribs


As a father and a grandfather, I’m looking forward to Father’s Day coming up this Sunday.  My family makes sure I get lots of extra attention on my special day.  Typically our family enjoys a big Father’s Day dinner at home after church on Sunday afternoon. 

The menu is carefully chosen with my tastes in mind and everyone else is eager to make my meal special.  But when it comes to cooking the meat, the job of grilling outdoors is still Dad’s job no matter what day it is.  

So, for Father’s Day this year I’m glad to see Brookshire’s is featuring Hormel pork baby back ribs on the front page of the ad.  I love baby back ribs!!!  Unfortunately for years I settled on paying sky-high “restaurant prices” when I wanted to enjoy ribs because I was afraid to try my own hand at grilling them at home.  But all that has changed now that I found a great recipe our family really likes.  

Why not try cooking your own baby back ribs this year?  If you need a recipe, there are several to choose from on the brookshires.com website.  And this week’s ad special on ribs will make your Father’s Day even more special.

Shop the Sale: Angel Food Cake


Angel food cake is so versatile; you can add anything to it. Since it is just like a sponge, it will just soak up the flavor of whatever you added to it. Since angel food cake is so low in fat, it is a healthy dessert to just add fruit to. While you have the grill all heated up this summer, go ahead and toss on a slice of angel food cake. Place the angel food cake on the side of the grill that has the least amount of heat. Grill for 1-3 minutes on each side and just add some fruit.  Angel food cake is on sale this week at Brookshire’s.
