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:

  • Lynn Hillis – I am a married mom of two boys and lead a very full life. I work full time and have 3 side ventures with my husband so we are constantly on the go.  We don’t do drive thru often, but we do dine out more than I care to admit. I love being able to have a homecooked meal for my family, without a lot of effort each day!
  • Stacy Huffines -  I have had Type-1 diabetes since the age of 4. I play competitive volleyball and softball when time allows. I am a single mother of a 14-year old boy, who also loves to cook. I work full time, am involved in the children’s ministry at church, and a leader in Boy Scouts for my son. He is also a soccer player, so we are on the go a bit. Having what we call Q&E (quick & easy) meals ready to go is a real life saver in our home. Using my slow cooker and pressure cooker throughout the week allows us to eat well while saving a bundle of time!
  • Gina Nute – I’m a mid-30’s wife to a Type-1 diabetic husband and it’s difficult to find tasty meals that are of a low glycemic index. I’m also a mom to three fur-kids, I work full-time, a Crossfit-er, and a yarn-a-holic. My severely neglected blog is: boxercrazies.blogspot.com

    Are you going to do full diabetic menus? I want to know before I sign up. Also with the pro membership can I put in my own recipes?

      Hi Lynn! Right now we don’t have plans to add a full diabetic menu to our monthly menus. However, it all depends on demand. We do have recipes on the site that would work for you though that aren’t necessarily specified as diabetic. With pro membership, you can swap out the recipes from any of the other menus but you can’t enter your own personal recipes. For now, that’s not going to be an option as we would need to verify and edit anything added for accuracy (or find a way to keep the recipe just accessible to you). We do have monthly membership though so if you want to give it a shot and see if it works for you, you can and you can cancel at any time without hassle. :)
