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!
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.

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.

When you buy fresh produce does it spoil too quickly? If so, frozen vegetables would be a better alternative. Frozen vegetables are a great idea to keep in your freezer. They are handy to have in case you cannot think of an idea for dinner; you can just pull them out of the freezer and cook.
Frozen vegetables are delicious added to pasta or stir fry. When vegetables are frozen they last longer than when they are fresh, therefore you could store them for a few weeks. When certain vegetables are out of season you can purchase them frozen. This week on sale at Brookshire’s is Food Club frozen vegetables. This would be a great time to stock up on them.
