Once a month cooking - oh yeah!

In my freezer sits 13 meals ready to feed my constantly hungry family.  It took just three hours this morning to put them all together and another hour to clean the kitchen.  My kids said it was just like watching iron chef...only the iron chef was wearing jammies!

I'll supplement the meals with other quick fix dinners, a couple of times eating out and a couple of YOYO nights (Your On Your Own), so the 13 meals will probably last three to four weeks. 

That's 13 nights of not having to figure out what to cook for dinner. 

13 nights of not having to mess up my kitchen or wash pots and pans. 

13 nights of less stress. 

Oh yeah!

Here's what's on the menu:

Tangy Pork Chops
Marinated Pork Roast
Penne pasta with meat sauce
Sweet and Sour meatballs
Swedish meatballs
Hamburger Stroganoff
2 types of quiche
Tater Tot Casserole
Cheese stuffed meatloaf
Rojo Casserole
Honey Lime chicken
Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Tomorrow I'll post a few tips for making the OAMC experience less stressful...dare I say, even fun!  Right now I need a nap...and a cookie.


  1. I'm definately impressed. I wasn't really inspired until you said 13 nights of not having to mess up the kitchen and wash pots and pans. Now that would be awesome!!!

  2. I've never frozen any dinners or done anything like OAMC, but I'm thinking I'm going to have to try a few of these.



I love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to let me know you're reading! Leave me a link and I'll visit you.
