Sunday cooking

I just spent a good three hours cooking quite a few meals for the next month.  I have been very tempted to try the once a month cooking method.  I haven't quite gotten brave enough to go there completely.  Today I browned 2lbs of turkey w/ 2 onions.  1 lb is going in the freezer.  I made chili with the other lb.  We will eat half of this and the other half will go in the freezer.  I boiled a few pieces of chicken and made enough for The Pioneer Woman's chicken spaghetti which I am going to freeze.  I also baked another dish of chicken w/ low fat sour cream and healthy request cream of mushroom.  We will eat that this week.  I'm tired, but we have quite a few meals ready.  I will post pics later (when my kitchen doesn't look like a bomb went off; DH will be the first to admit that when I cook I make a HUGE mess).  Luckily, since I cook, he cleans up.  He doesn't complain though.  At least I won't have to cook when I get home from work this week.


  1. It's such a good idea to only cook once a week. It would make life much less complicated. It's just a matter of getting organised enough to do so ;-)

  2. I am impressed with myself if I prep a few meals for the week. I like to cook chicken breasts a few different ways, then I have them ready to go for the week. My problem is that I change my mind for what I am in the mood to eat and my pre made meals don't sound good to me any more.

  3. I have the same problem changing my mind at what I want, but at least most of it will last for a month or more.

  4. This is a huge encouragement to all of us though that want to get into this type of a routine! Keep going, you can do it!

    Thanks for stopping over at my blog with that encouraging comment!
