Once-a-Month cooking seems like such a wonderful idea — dozens of meals, ready at a moments notice — until you try to do it. It can be overwhelming when you don’t plan correctly. It can take all day, or even several days to make everything on the list. It’s exhausting. For me, it ended up being more tiring than actually cooking every night and we didn’t like the food as much.
So, instead of following someone else’s menu and plan, I needed to create my own. We needed food we actually enjoy and a more convenient way of making it.
Make the meals as you go!
- If you’re making a casserole on Monday, make two and freeze one.
- If you’re making a meatloaf on Tuesday, make two and freeze one.
- If you’re marinating chicken on Wednesday, make THREE bags and freeze two of them!
After a month, you’ll have a month’s worth of meals frozen with very little extra effort!!
