How I Once a Month Cook: Melissa
Like many other writers how I Once a Month Cook has evolved and changed based on events and happenings in my family. How I cook now, with a 3 year old and an 18 month old looks vastly different from what I did when I was pregnant with my first child. For one thing, having two toddlers running around makes it very difficult to keep everything straight when I have multiple things going on!
Do I follow the Once a Mom Menus? In a word, no. I do however use many of the recipes from the site. In fact one of our favorites is Tricia’s Ham and Potato Pockets that I have adjusted to use my own crescent roll dough recipe. My family has many favorites of its own which I have been incorporating into my own menus. The Create Your Own Menu Series was a great resource as I developed my own custom menus.
Do I cook only once a month? I love to cook and bake, so I couldn’t limit myself to just one day a month. At the same time I love to have freezer meals to fall back on for those busy nights after work or when I’m too tired to cook and the kids are starving!
