Weekly Menu, week beginning 9/28

Well, we did it.  This weekend we tried out Once a Month Mom’s September Once a Month cooking plan.  We convered on my MIL yesterday afternoon and she helped with the cooking and kid managing and Big Daddy and I went to town.  It took 6.5 horus from start to finish (from beginning to clean up) and our outside freezer is stocked with 17 dinners (we halved the recipes based on our family’s needs), three separate breakfast options and four separate lunch options.

I’m so excited about not having to plan dinner for 20 of the next 28 days and I’m more than a little sure that this new plan will save us money.

Again, we halved the plan and figure we spent about $200 to do so.  We will be using the meals four days a week (one day a week will be our pizza night, one day a week will be wev. and one night a week will be special requests, grilling, entertaining, etc).

Next time, we will be sure to do ALL of the suggested early preparations EARLY.  Big Daddy spent the first hour or more chopping which slowed down our cooking prep.

Monday

Eating a Chili’s to support St. Jude’s hospital to support the fight against childhood cancer.  Even though I just spent a ga-million hours cooking, we’re going out to eat at Chili’s to offer our support.  If you can manage it,  you should too.
