Dine In: Dinner at home

Eating dinner together at home on Friday evenings is such a great way to reconnect with your family after a hectic week. With some planning and input from your family you can get everyone involved and prepare a nutritious homemade dinner together at home. When you regularly sit down for a meal with your children you can learn so much about what is happening in their lives and discuss other things that are going on in the world around us. I was lucky enough to grow up in a family that had dinner together almost every night.

We talked about our day, made lots of jokes, picked on each other and sometimes laughed so hard that one or more of us almost got choked. Oh, the memories! These and other memories like this from my childhood and the times we spent around the dinner table made a lasting impression on me as I am sure they will in your family as well.

Dine-In: Refrigerated Pasta

Refrigerated PastaI have never really been a big fan of pasta, when we would have spaghetti growing up I would always opt out for a sandwich. One day I was at an Italian restaurant and my friend wanted me to try her dish. When I would go to Italian food restaurants, I would always just get a salad because I really did not like pasta; well I thought I did not like it.  So I tried her dish, it was tortellini and oh it was so good. I had noticed in the grocery store that they had refrigerated tortellini and other pastas. After a month of eyeing this pasta, I finally tried it and loved it.  Now when I want some pasta, I just run to the store, grab some refrigerated pasta, like tortellini or ravioli, and either pesto or Alfredo sauce and enjoy.  It’s quick, economical, and delicious.

Dine In: Time With Our Family

Dining in on Fridays does not necessarily require a tremendous amount of time in the kitchen or time away from your family. What most of us want these days is some help in pulling together meals.

We all value our time with our family and especially at mealtime. Most of us will agree that dining-in is healthier than eating out and the best way to connect with family on a regular basis.

We have many meal solutions throughout our stores with ready-to-eat, ready-to-heat and ready-to-cook options. These items are not only easy but affordable so stop by your local Brookshire’s store, grab some dinner and enjoy a Friday night at home with the most important people in the world…your family.


Dine In: Vegetable Topped Sandwich

When summer comes around, you always just want a light lunch. You want a lunch that is nothing heavy, just something light and refreshing. Sandwiches are always great in the summer but bread, meat, and cheese can get really old really quick. Making different kinds of sandwiches will help with this, like adding different vegetables to your sandwich. You can grill or sauté vegetables to add to your sandwich.

Vegetable Topped Sandwich
Serves: 2
Prep time: 15 minutes

4 slices pumpernickel bread
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 cup onion, sliced
1 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 Tbs olive oil

1 cup shredded lettuce
1 cucumber, sliced
4 slices turkey breast

Toast bread.  In a foil packet, add bell pepper, onion, garlic and olive oil. Add foil packet to the grill for 5 minutes. Once vegetables are tender, take bread and add grilled vegetables, meat and other vegetables.

Dine In: Creating Memorable Moments

One of my favorite memories from childhood is remembering my Mother’s weekly shopping trip to our Brookshire’s store in Greenville.  As part of our weekly ritual my three brothers along with my sister and I would all help in putting away the items that she purchased.  After we put away the weeks supply then we would all start to prepare the evening meal together as a family. Mother would make the patties and fry them in a cast iron skillet while my sister and I would cut up the lettuce and tomatoes and put out all the other fixings for our old fashioned burgers. She would always brown the buns in the skillet after all the burgers were cooked. I am not quite sure what my three brothers were doing but I am certain that they were helping somehow.

In today’s world we are all trying to live more healthy lifestyles, so a new twist on this same type of family dining tradition would be to gather your family around the kitchen on a Friday evening to assemble homemade shish k-bobs and grill them as a family.  We are all looking for ways to eat healthier, have more family time, cook together more and eat out less.  So whether you are pressed for time or just looking for a fun way to kick off a memorable weekend, preparing and assembling meals together is a great activity.  While school is out for the summer it may be more important than ever for kids to learn to eat a nutritious diet while having fun. It is also a perfect time of year to visit the produce department where all sorts of bountiful fruits and vegetables are at their freshest right now.  Assemble K-bobs with a variety of fruits, veggies and proteins allowing each child t o create their own individual skewer. They will be more eager to taste the foods they helped make. Family meals are the perfect opportunity for parents to expose children to different foods and expand their tastes. A red pepper cut in small portions and pushed onto a stick may not as intimating as it would be served in larger portions.

I sincerely hope that you and your family can create some treasured memories that mean as much to them as mine do to me. Have a great summer.
