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:

  • Liz Fischer - I’m Liz, married with three girls ages 8, 5, and 18mo. My husband recently separated from the Marine Corps and we are settling into our new home in New Jersey. I’m from the south, so all this northern stuff is new to me, but I love it. I’m a founding OAMM member (woot!) and have been monthly cooking for a couple of years. Love it. This was totally fun, btw, and it was nice to feel like I got so much accomplished in such a short time.
  • Kelleigh Ratzlaff -  Kelleigh Ratzlaff is a small business owner, wife and mother to two hungry boys, so she’s always looking for ways to streamline her life to make time for family. OAMM is at the top of her time-saving list, and she’s been a true believer in the OAMM mission since before membership was an option! Kelleigh always cooks mini menus, and is in LOVE with the swappable menu feature!

    Just did this as my first freezer cooking day. It actually only took me a few hours and put 10 dinners in the freezer. We have tried two of them so far and everyone likes them. My youngest daughter asked for non-BBQ quesadillas so I made some with salsa instead of BBQ sauce too (2nd batch) and just used the same technique. It was pouring outside so I used my quesadilla maker instead of the grill for them, but I was able to keep making those while working on everything else. Trying a full menu this weekend so we’ll see how that goes.
