What are Mini Menus? Mini menus are a fraction of the meals you would see on a normal menu and can be completed quickly and efficiently in a few short hours, in the evenings when you are preparing the meal for dinner or during small bursts of times like naps. Mini meal plans are designed for the busy family who wants freezer meals in their freezer but doesn’t have time to do a full months worth of meals. If you are new and not sure how to get started we have a wonderful series starting with 5 easy steps to get you on your way to once a month cooking. Good luck! If you like (or don’t like) this menu you might want to check out all our past mini menus!

Document Update

As you can see we have a NEW way of getting and printing your monthly menu documents. As part of that change, we have also changed the type/size of labels we use. The above labels will print four to a page and line up with Avery 8168/5168 labels or equivalent.

Test Cooks

Each month we have some wonderful volunteers who “test” out the menu prior to publication. They do an amazing job of helping to eliminate confusion and mistakes. They may not catch everything but they sure do catch A LOT! If you are interested in test cook, feel free to volunteer. Here is a little bit about this month’s test cooks:

  • Shanna Freeman – Shanna is a work-from-home mom with an active preschooler. Her husband works long hours and she enjoys getting dinner ready in a hurry. Finding recipes that all of her family likes can be a challenge, and she has been so pleased with the variety of offerings and the new swap feature at OAMM!
  • Christy Lee – My name is Christy, I live in Jacksonville, FL. I learned how to cook from my mom, my grandmother and great grandmother. When I was growing up you always cooked for an army, and food savers were called seal a meals (I still call it that).

Get Started

Are you new to Once A Month Meals or once a month cooking (oamc) in general? If so, you might want to spend a few minutes (or hours) on the Get Started Series. If you are in a real hurry to catch on we have written some simple steps for getting started. Welcome!

  1. I am wondering if these recipes are DIABETES FRIENDLY. I am a 60 yr old gramma and I need to be able to help myself, my husband and members of my family stay on track. I’d LOVE to be able to “make ahead” tho and this seems like a FANTASTIC idea.

    Thank you,
    Jolene Bishop
