OAMC: Day Three

Today was fairly mellow since I had a dr’s appt in the morning and swim lessons/playday in the afternoon. I tried not to sweat it, both in and out of the kitchen. But, I did accomplish a few things for my OAMC bash: * three lasagnas with meat, cheese, and spinach are in the freezer. […]

News Flash

Remember awhile ago I mentioned the Crockpot 365 blog where Stephanie cooks something everyday in her slowcooker? Well, she’s going to be on Rachel Ray today! How fun!

OAMC: Day Two

Another day, another dinner — or two or ten. Praise the Lord for small (and big) mercies! It was actually very mellow around here, despite my late start. No spilled milk today! I got cookin’ about 10 and wrapped up the morning at 11:45 for lunch and swim lessons. Crockpots simmered while we were gone. […]

OAMC: Day One

Whole Lot of Cookin’ Goin’ On

This week I’m going in. Cover me. Yep, that’s right. Going to do some “once a month cooking.” If you’ve never tried it before, it’s definitely worth your while, even if yours is a small family. I’ve been cooking this way a few times a year for the last 11 years, and it is always […]

Making Do Menus

I have mentioned how I’m gearing up for a big Once-A-Month Cooking Bash in preparation for FishBaby’s arrival. Part of that is using up what we have in the deep freeze so that I can defrost and clean it. I was pleased to find out that I had quite enough to make dinners for this […]

OAMC: Phase 1A, cont’d

I mentioned before that I’m getting ready for a two-day cooking bash so that when FishChick arrives, my freezer is full and I can put my feet up. Phase 1A consists of cleaning, organizing, and inventorying the pantry and freezers. I took care of the pantry and the refrig/freezer over the weekend. Well, the pantry […]
