Shop the Sale: Ground Turkey


Ground turkey meat is a healthy alternative to beef; you can use it in almost anything you use beef for. With ground turkey you can make delicious turkey burgers as well as turkey meat balls.

It is getting warmer outside so you could heat up the grill, grab some ground turkey on sale at Brookshire’s, and make a delicious turkey burger.

Shop the Sale: Strawberries


Does anything say SPRING more than a bowl full of fresh strawberries? When I see berries in the store—like they are at Brookshire’s this week—I know the beautiful days of spring are upon us—at least some of the time. So while the weather may be unreliable, at least you can count on some things—like strawberries!

Ever made macerated strawberries? Macerated is a fancy-schmancy food term that means you cut them up, and let them sit so they get really juicy. So…slice up berries, sprinkle with just a tablespoon of sugar or Splenda, and let them stand 20 minutes. They’re the perfect dessert, just the way they are!

Shop the Sale: Pork Chops


Everyone loves pork chops and since they’re on sale at Brookshire’s, why not pick up a package?

If time is precious at your house, put pork chops in the crock pot with a can of condensed cream of mushroom (or chicken) soup and let ‘em cook all day. You’ll have pork chops and gravy ready when you get home!



Shop the Sale: Broccoli


Don’t let St. Patrick’s Day sneak up on you without having something green to fix for dinner! We’ve got broccoli crowns on sale this week—perfect for adding a touch of green to your plate. Broccoli is a good source of calcium, fiber and Vitamin C and very low in calories. Many nutritionists call it a super food, so take advantage of a great price on a great vegetable!

Shop the Sale: Bacon


It’s the eternal dilemma: which is best, sausage or bacon? We even ran an unofficial poll on the subject and the answer wasn’t conclusive. But you can try both and save money, as well. This week we have big 3-pound packages of bacon and sausage on sale at Brookshire’s. I think it’s time for a brunch taste test!

Shop the Sale: Oreos


Oreos are on sale!! Need we say more?! If you can resist scarfing down the entire bag, put half a bag in a zipper-top plastic bag and crush them with a skillet. Then use some of that as a crumb crust. Add in a thick layer of the ready-to-use cheesecake filling you can get in the dairy case and top with more cookie crumbles.

What an awesome Valentine’s Day cake to make! And you can say in all honesty, “I made it myself.”

Shop the Sale: Ground Chuck


There are some sales that you really look forward to, because you know you can stock up, save some serious money and not be at a loss for what to do with the product. This is one of those sales: ground chuck. 

Ground chuck, as we’ve discussed before, is the perfect type of beef for burgers. It has just enough fat to retain the juiciness, but not so much fat that your burgers cook away into little nuggets. The fat-to-meat ratio means that you get more meat for your dollar, too. 

But besides burgers, ground chuck is great for tacos, for soups, for spaghetti and lasagna and a dozen other casseroles. I like to buy it in larger lots and take it home for dividing. Some of it will be browned and packaged in 1-pound freezer containers. Some of it will be put in 1-pound packs as uncooked meat. Then I have plenty of options, all waiting in the deep freeze. It makes you feel safe and secure on a cold winter’s day, that’s for sure!



Shop the Sale: Cereal


It’s amazing how the little things really make a difference. If you go to the pantry in the morning and there’s no cereal for breakfast, it just gets your day off to a lousy start.

You can prevent that, you know, and Brookshire’s can help. We have Kellogg’s and Kashi cereals on sale this week, so this is the perfect time to stock up and save!

It’s also another opportunity to put that healthy-breakfast New Year’s resolution into practice. You know what they say about breakfast being the most important meal of the day!
