OAMC: Completed for March

PHEW!  That's all I can say.  Actually, my dad used to say this funny thing "I'm so tired I can barely talk" and he would draw out each syllable and speak it very slowly...it was so funny!  Anyway, that's how I feel.  But I wanted to share with you what I've gotten done for this month.

Last week I was able to make a couple of things in "batch cooking" style.  
  • baked mac & cheese with spinach (cups x 24)
  • pigs in blankets x 48 (mini size, guess they might be called "piglets")
  • buttermilk dump chicken (I had some chicken quarters and drumsticks and made up 5 dump chicken recipes, in addition to the buttermilk chicken I froze sticky chinese chicken, autumn chicken, honey lemon chicken, apricot mustard chicken) 
  • breakfast energy bars x 18
Yesterday was my "Prep" day.  
  • chopped onions
  • chopped celery
  • chopped apples
  • browned ground turkey
  • baked yeast rolls x 2
  • baked hamburger buns (first time - so fun!) x 2
  • chicken breasts in crock pot, cubed & shredded x 5
  • mixed up raisin bran muffins so they could soak overnight
  • soaked black beans overnight 
Today, I was able to get everything done on my list.  My mom stopped by and helped clean up and folded some clothes for me while I finished up this afternoon.  (Thanks Momma!)
Tomorrow I'm going to work on some oatmeal cookies which can be frozen in then baked when we want a little something sweet to eat.

Busy day results in many meals for next month.  

Enjoy!
