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.


Are you a person that likes to see the menus visually? Perhaps you should check out the December 2013 Gluten Free Dairy Free Menu via Pinterest to see the yummy goodness you will be cooking up on this menu. Not sure what Pinterest is all about, check out what Once A Month Meals has to say about it.

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:

  • Amie Johnson- I am a 47 year old stay at home wife and mom of two teen-age daughters and a 22 year old son with severe autism, and we live in Simi Valley, CA, home of the Regan Presidential Library. Both my son and I have confirmed gluten and dairy sensitivities, but I suspect that one of my daughters has these issues as well, so adjusting the menu for the whole family (without necessarily telling them) is a good thing.
  • Wanda Quennell-  I am a mom of two boys, max 17 and Aidan 14.  I work full time as a rehabilitation assistant working with seniors. I am married and just celebrated our 21st anniversary.

    Hi there, the Mulligatawny soup recipe takes me to a weight loss website. It starts to look like the proper website, but then changes to the weight loss website. I am not sure if it is just a glitch on my end or not. Thank you in advance. You guys are awesome!

    Hi. I like to use the gluten/dairy free menus every once in a while, so that we always have something available for when my son’s best friend, who cannot eat those things, spends time in our home. I do tacos a lot because they are very gluten free friendly, and he just doesn’t put cheese on his. When making this, in order to keep it gluten free, you want to make sure and either season the meat yourself, so you know what is going in it, or definitely use the McCormick brand and not a store brand or something. Seasoning packets, such as these, are notorious for including gluten in their ingredients. They are just hidden in terms such as “natural spices” or “natural flavorings”. McCormick, however, is very thorough in including all ingredients on their packaging and making anything that contains gluten known to their consumers.

    Hi! I am new to OAMC and I’m getting ready for my first all-inclusive shopping day / prep say and first big cooking day (doubling quantities to do an entire month at once). I have read through a lot of posts and beginner articles on the site (Thank you for giving so much info about how to get started!), but I can’t seem to find the answer to one question: do the “throw and go” meals still get frozen? Should I be buying those ingredients during my beginning of the month one stop shopping trip, or are those meals designed to be shopped for and cooked on an as needed basis? I don’t want to stock up on a month’s worth of produce if it’s not going to stay fresh for 3-4 weeks! Thanks for your help :)
