If it seems like the holidays are starting earlier and earlier each year – you’re right. You may have noticed the Halloween costumes creeping onto the shelves back in August or the Christmas decorations merrily decking the shelves of stores this month. You’re not alone if you’re wondering how the holiday season can be here. When the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade started in 1924, the Friday after Thanksgiving (aka Black Friday) was the unofficial kick-off to the holiday shopping season. However, a recent Statista.com poll shows that 43% of consumers will begin their holiday shopping in October, and another 25% will start before Thanksgiving. That means nearly ⅔ of consumers are starting their holiday shopping well before Black Friday!
So if you’re already feeling overwhelmed by holiday shopping, don’t worry – Brookfields is here to help! Whether you’re an early bird, a last-minute shopper, or somewhere in between, we’re here to help you through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season with our delicious, home-cooked food.
Sometimes a small bite is all you need. Research shows that eating smaller meals throughout the day can help stabilize blood sugar levels and provide much-needed nutrients to your body. Eating smaller, more frequent meals daily can also help your body’s metabolism become more efficient. Conversely, when meals are skipped, your body’s metabolism slows down. So when you’re out and about after a long day of shopping, here are a few of our favorite small bites to help fuel your body!
Hand-Battered Zucchini Crisps
If you love the crispy crunch of our French Fries but want something a little different, try our Hand-battered Zucchini Crisps! We always use the freshest zucchini, cutting them into long strips and battering them with our homemade beer batter. They’re the perfect way to start any meal!
BBQ Pulled Pork Slider
Our BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders are the perfect mini meal! We slow-cook our pulled pork and serve it with BBQ sauce and crispy coleslaw on warm ciabatta buns. Great if you need to grab and go, or perhaps sit and enjoy one of our happy hour drinks! (served daily from 2-6 pm) And if you love these sliders but find yourself wanting more, there’s always our full-sized Hawaiian Pulled Pork Sandwich!
These Skillet Nachos are worth taking a break for! Served with your choice of beef or Chile Verde and topped with salsa and cheese.
