Create Your Own Menu (Part 11): Bringing It All Together
As you can see from all the previous week’s postings, there is a lot involved with putting together a great Once A Month Mom menu. I think our Once A Month Mom & DOLE Frozen Fruit March Menu Contest finalists can attest to that!
However, it is feasible to do your own menu. You can make it as simple or as complex as you would like. And really, if you are just doing it for yourself, there really is not a need to do a lot of the conversions and equivalents if you don’t want to.
In future months, I will be providing a linky each month for those of you to link up if you have created your own OAMC (once a month cooking, batch cooking, bulk cooking, power cooking or freezer cooking) menus. I know many of you are starting the endeavor of creating your own from your family favorites or to meet the needs of family members with allergies and I am sure other readers would LOVE to have extra resources to utilize. So keep on the lookout for that menu roundup each month.
The only piece or resource that I use that I didn’t provide to you was the Once A Month Mom Recipe Menu Template. This is the document where I type in the recipes that we will be using for our cooking day. This is not necessary for the everyday cook but can come in handy if you are wanting to adapt the recipes into an easy to read resource.
Please feel free to follow the duplicating instructions and make it your own!
I hope that you have enjoyed this series and found it helpful. If you find that you have additional questions you would like me to address please leave a comment or send me an email. I *think* that I have covered everything but there are always things that I haven’t thought about since I have been dong these cooking days and menus for some time.
I have heard from many of you that this has been helpful and I am grateful! Good luck creating your own menus.
Please feel free to direct questions in the comment section below. However, keep in mind that this is a multi-part series. Please review previous posts for answers before submitting questions and review upcoming topics to see if your question will be answered shortly. Thank you.
