Batch Cooking Day

Last week Rebekah from Simply Rebekah and I embarked on our second BIG cooking day.  In 2010 we did a Once A Month cooking day. It was a long, tiring day but we accomplished so much and had a bounty of food to show for our hard work.

When we started discussing doing another cooking day we knew we wanted to do it a little different.

Instead of using a plan from Once A Month Mom (which I still recommend) we decided to plan our own menu.  We e-mailed  back and forth with meals or recipes that we wanted to make, we narrowed them down and had a list. Here’s what we ended up with:

 

 

 

The Cost Breakdown:

Total Cost: $80.12

Total Meals: 11

Total Meal Starters: 13 (taco meat, pizza dough, etc)

$3.34 per meal/starter

 

This does not include:

Lots of banana bread – about 6 mini loaves and 9 muffins

2 bags of peanut butter granola

4 cans worth of black beans

We also each walked home with the leftover ingredients (bananas, flour, spices, cheese, ziplock bags, etc)

 

** thank you Rebekah for figuring out the numbers and totals **

 

I’ll be sharing more details about our cooking day later this week, so be sure to check back! (and yes, there will be recipes and a video!)
