Once A Month Cooking with Rebekah

Well, we did it! Wednesday my friend and fellow blogger, Rebekah and I successfully completed our Once a Month Cooking day.

Right now even thinking about it makes me tired. It was a lot of planning and work, but now we can both rest assured that we have dinner in the freezer.

All of these recipes came from Once A Month Mom’s awesome website. You can find These recipes here.

Here’s what’s stuffed in my freezer:

  • Fruit and Yogurt Smoothies
  • Fruit and Grain Bars (these are pretty much gone, so yummy we can’t keep our paws off ’em)
  • Pizza Rolls (4 meals)
  • Beef Enchiladas (2 Meals)
  • Mini Meatloaves (4 meals)
  • Mini Chicken Pot Pies (4 meals)
  • Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir-fry (2 meals)
  • Chicken nuggets (minus some burnt!) (1 meal due to burned nuggets)
  • Ravioli Lasagna (2 meals)
  • Buffalo Shrimp (2 meals)

Rebekah @ SimplyRebekah did a great job chronicling our day. I recorded a very short and poor quality video with excerpts from the day.

I hope you enjoy it…

It was so nice to have a good friend like Rebekah to tackle this HUGE task with me. She always cracks me up and helps me to not be so serious all of the time! I think we did a great job!

    Hey Donna! Loved it! You’re a very motivated woman! I wish I had half of your energy! I might steal your ideas and try it with some of my friends. Then I’ll have to send you a video of our adventure! I’ll keep you posted!

    Thanks for the video and the ideas! It’s very motivating!

    This video is awesome!!! I am so glad we did it. It really makes me giggle. 🙂

    You know, I think OAMC might be a little like child birth… you kind of “forget” the pain of it all after the fact. It doesn’t seem like it was such a big deal today as it felt like it was on Wednesday! hahaha!

      Thanks Candi – It was worth it in my opinion! Lots of good food in the fridge it takes a lot of the stress out of my week when it comes to dinner time.

      Thanks for stopping by!
