OAMC (Otherwise known as "How to NOT eat at the ballpark EVERY game night!")

We're back at it again! It's been far too long and my freezer is lonely. My husband longs for choices other than mac & cheese or fried egg sandwiches when I'm gone. My children are going to get tired of eating at the (very best ever) concession stand. Won't they?!
Tawnya and I OAMC'd on Saturday. It's been so long since we've done a "real" OAMC day that we both felt like newbies. Planning, shopping, and organizing wore us out before we actually began to cook. Bad sign...
Remarkably, we did great! We made lots of yummy food and got done cooking, packaging, and cleaning by 3:00. Now, for the fun part... The list of meals now tucked safely into the freezer.
  • Bangkok Chicken Satay x 2
  • Parmesan Garlic Chicken x 2
  • Grilled Rib Eye Steaks x 2
  • Honey-Dijon Glazed Ham x 1
  • Steak Soft Tacos x 2
  • Spicy Peanut Chicken x 2
  • Dijon Beef Tips x 2
  • Cheesy Chicken Bundles x 2

15 meals. Mmmmmm...

All but the last 2 recipes are from my new OAMC cookbook- Don't Panic: More Dinner's In the Freezer. Like it's predecessor (and the source for the last two recipes) Don't Panic Dinner's In the Freezer, every recipe we've tried has been great. I'm hoping for similar success. In any event, like the meals or not, we have a variety to choose from and I can save my pennies instead of personally funding Little League with our frequent financial support of the concession stand!

Your kids will not consider these fine home cooked meals to be a substitute for ball park food you know. They will still be expecting luke warm hotdogs on stale buns and flat pop.

Good job! My kids would prefer the concession stand though.
