For the past few weeks (months really) I have been tossing around the idea of Once a Month Cooking. It was such an idea that I adored, but didn’t know if I could pull it off. I like cooking (more now than ever) but am not the greatest at following recipes. With Once a Month Cooking you sort of have too, since some things just don’t freeze well.
Since this was my first time, I started with just 5 things. It was only going to be 4, but I decided to try one thing that wasn’t really freezer cooking but that my kids could eat now.
Lasagna with meat
Total, it took me about 5 hours to get everything done.
I loved doing this. Making sure that even if I am sick, busy or just plain don’t want to figure out what to make for dinner, we have options. We have something that we can throw in that will be a full meal for the family.
I loved finding blogs that we helpful to planning and organizing my cooking plan. I never would have thought that there would be so many resources out there. I had gotten this book from BIL for Christmas, and did the lasagna recipe from there. It is a FABULOUS book to have!
