Once a month cooking
Wednesday, February 02, 2011
this summer i am taking off from work ( i work at a school) and was planning on starting to cut back, save and otherwise prepare for the two months when i will not be getting paid. I have ran the idea by my DH about OAMC and he thought it was a great idea!. i have a garden and planned it very carefully, hoping for a better growing season than last year( all the rain caused rotten potatoes) And need a few ideas and recipes that others have tried for this OAMC. I plan to shop in early June or may, and start filling the freezer, hence cutting out the grocery bill( or most of it) for July and august. I make awesome Lasagna already, killer stew and some very yummy chicken. Love recipes for OAMC and side dishes to. Just bought a used vacuum sealer and plan on utilizing that as well thanks!

freezer meals once a week
Saturday, February 12, 2011 | By leftthesanebehind
I have broken down the once a month cooking into a few meals made every weekend and frozen for a later date! I don't have a lot of space in my very small kitchen to make such a big mess in one weekend! I made a vegetable lasagna today and froze it, freezer biscuits and froze them, cookies and froze them and a bunch of muffins as well! That took up my entire day and left me with severe dish pan hands (I don't have a dishwasher. So the idea of cooking once and eating for 30 days..is no longer possible, sorry to say.
