I love Once-a-Month-Cooking! I don't actually do it once a month and I don't use my meals many nights in a row. Instead, I cook once every three months or so. When I do my weekly meal planning, I just plan an OAMC meal for one of those nights each week.

When school starts this fall, I'll be using those OAMC meals on co-op nights. So... with the school year looming, I got together with Tawnya and Amber and we cooked! I have 20 meals now and 4 batches of cookie dough (all balled and ready to go into the oven). It's a great feeling!

I made:
  • roast x 2
  • manicotti x 4
  • oriental chicken x 2
  • cheesy chicken x 4
  • chicken pot pie x 2
  • meatloaf x 4
  • tomato sauce x 2
  • oatmeal M & M cookies x 2
  • chocolate chip cookies x 2
Kjersten stayed home to help us! Here she is with Tawnya.

Yum - it all sounds so good, Karen. I need to get serious and do the same. I had a good start going and then got busy and had company and ATE a good share of what I'd put in the freezer.
