OAMC: Plan for March 2010

Have you tried Once-A-Month-Cooking?  Some people call it Batch Cooking, Bulk Cooking, Freezer Cooking, Baking Day - whatever you choose to call it, it's so worth it!  Crystal at Money Saving Mom and Jessica at Life as Mom are going to be hosting OAMC day(s).  Be sure to visit the facebook page to RSVP.  How fun!

My game plan is to do some of the prep work on Saturday and Sunday night and do the bulk of the assembling, cooking and baking on Monday.  It should be an easy OAMC day.  I hope!
That's a long list and I might have to do this over a couple of days, but we'll see.  I just hope it doesn't cover 4 days like last month.  I've tried to include some lunch ideas for the kids: baked mac & cheese cups, bean & cheese burritos and pigs in blankets.  These should last us throughout the month.  We usually have macaroni & cheese with peas.  Since I'm running low on the "blue box" mac & cheese, I figured I'd give the homemade baked version a try in a "cup" size for the kids.  I'm not sure if they will pop out of the muffin tins easily or if I'll need to pour the mixture into muffin cups.  I have some tin foil cups that might work well.  I'll figure it out as I go. When I made these on Thursday, I used the tin foil cups and they worked perfectly.  The kids ate them for lunch and loved them.   They peeled the foil away and dumped the pasta on their plates.  It was so easy!

The muffins will be great breakfast alternatives and snack options.  I'm really looking forward to the French Toast Sticks.  I think the kids will love these!  I've never made them and I'm not sure it's a good idea to try something new on OAMC day but, oh well...

Don't forget to follow along on twitter using hashtag #oamc to see what everyone else will be cooking and baking up.

So whatcha' got cookin' for your month?
