Get Ready for Once a Month!

It’s that time of the month again!  The new Once a Month menus are out and ready for you to cook!  Now the premise is that many of the foods used for this month are generally either in season or on sale in the month of June, so use the entire month to shop the sales and stock up so you get the best deals.  I have yet to do this so I might give it a try.  In theory you shop all month, cook at the end of the month and then eat these meals all through the month of July.

I still have about a dozen meals left from my May cooking day and I think I still have one or two left from April that we haven’t eaten yet.  We are almost out of breakfast foods.  Honestly, we can’t get enough of those pancakes, so we’ll definitely be making more of those this weekend.  We still have plenty of lunches left for the month too. 

The amazing women at Once a Month Mom have created not one, but FIVE different menus to choose from depending on your dietary wishes:

Whole Foods
Gluten and Dairy Free

So keep me posted – I’d love to hear if any of you are going to try this out!  I may just try out the Whole Foods menu this month.  I probably won’t make all the add on’s, but I think that menu has more things we’d enjoy this month.  I am definitely enjoying not having to cook every single night, especially in this heat.  We’ve also noticed that we hardly ever go out for dinner anymore.  Why go out when the food you have at home is just as good, if not better and way cheaper?  I’m all about saving money any place I can. 

Happy summer!

Until the next time …

My mom and I did the April menu, minus a couple of the meals, to try it out. We loved the idea, though not some of the meals, so we're making our own menu this month with meals we chose from the Feb.-May menus. I'm a little intimidated to plan the grocery list myself, but I can't wait to do it again! :)

Yay! That's what we did too! We skipped the ones we didn't think we'd like and pulled in a few breakfast foods from some others. I don't want freezer meals every single day, but having 15 for the the month is great! You'll have to let us know what recipes you picked! You can be my guest blogger!

That'd be fun! I have the meals picked for our next cooking day, and we're considering June 11 to do the cooking. I plan to take photos this time (was too overwhelmed last time to think about it), but afterwards, I'd love to do a guest blog! :)
