Over the years I have done Once a Month Cooking at various times and always enjoyed having the shopping, planning, and prep work for multiple meals done ahead of time. Recently I ran across the site Once a Month Mom which has FREE monthly, seasonally based menus which include grocery lists, recipe cards, instructions, and labels as well as an introductory podcast.  What a great resource. I am looking forward to trying one of her plans. 

A couple of weeks ago I whipped up a small recipe plan I found on which included:

On the Menu:

*All Purpose Ground Meat Mix
*Piquant Chicken With Basil (oamc)
*Spiced Citrus Dump Chicken
*Honey-Soy Glazed Pork Chops
*Citrus Marinated Pork Chops (oamc)
*Our Family Favourite Crockpot Chili (oamc)
*Pizza Roll-Ups (OAMC)
*Bacon Wrapped Chicken (Oamc)
*Mexican Stuffed Shells (OAMC)
*Veggie Pasta Shells (Oamc)
*Judy’s Grilled Flank Steak
*Make-Two Macaroni and Cheese
 We have already eaten seven different dishes and enjoyed each one of them.  I spent $200 for the food and it made will easily provide 30 meals for the four of us.  While perusing the internet this morning I found that there are abundant resources for anyone wanting to try this method of streamlining their family food preparation. 

Here are links to a few sites that you might find helpful:
