Once a Month Cooking

The past few months I've been doing a lot of researching on once a month cooking (OAMC). I've had a couple of freezer cooking days in the past few months, but it's always been maybe a 1/2 a day dedicated to cooking and I haven't been very good at organizing at all.

I've decided that for June I really want to do a full day of cooking and see just how well I can do with this OAMC stuff.

I've downloaded some great organizational tools from Money Saving Mom and 30 Day Cafe, and I've already got some great recipes I want to try. Now all I have to do is make a plan, make a grocery list, and get to work.

How many of my readers out there do OAMC or even just some freezer cooking? I'd love to hear your thoughts, ideas, or favorite tips for cooking for the freezer, shopping once a month, or even money saving tips for OAMC or freezer cooking.

This sounds like fun! I don't do much freezer cooking...I just throw my leftovers in there when I have extra. Good Luck can't wait to see how it goes for you!

I do a lot of batch cooking simply because I cannot seem to find the time for even a 1/2 day of cooking. However--I am going to do two 1/2 days of freezer cooking for June to make most of our meals. I want dinner to be easily thrown together in the summer months so we can go out to the pool or do an activity after nap time! So often during the nice weather I want to go out after nap, but there is dinner prep--even simple, but still takes time. I'll be blogging about it too.
