Labels: TRADITIONAL October 2011 Menu

[sam_ad id=”8″ codes=”true”]This month’s menu sponsor is Hunt’s. Did you know that Hunt’s has a Signature Recipe Collection? A wide selection of great recipes to choose from no matter your budget or time constraints. Check out their recipes today.


Designed to be printed on Avery 8163 or equivalent! Readers who didn’t have labels available suggested just printing them on paper and taping them.

The labels come two per recipe to a sheet with five recipes on each sheet. If you are only cooking half the menu (by yourself) this is all you will need. If you are cooking with a partner, you will need to print TWO of each label which will give you enough. If you need extra labels for some reason print out a set of the blanks to use. Make sense? I hope so! Enjoy.

If you are having trouble with the above labels aligning when printing or would like to edit them, you may wish to try this work around suggested by a reader:

Install Cute PDF Writer which is a FREE PDF to Microsoft Word converter. You need to download the software to computer and then install the Free Converter. (I have tried it and know it to be a safe download.) When you then open the Labels PDF from above, click print and choose cute pdf instead of your regular printer, this will then convert and allow you to save as a word document. Hope this helps!

    Hi, I just wanted to say that this does not print correctly on Avery 8163 because of the top line that says “Shipping Labels…” If that line was not there, it would print correctly. I bought labels today and have now wasted 2 sheets. The Cute PDF Writer does not work, so now I am out the $13 for the labels unless somehow the format is changed to be correct. Hope this is helpful.

      While I understand your concern I’m not one to complain about something that requires SO MUCH EFFORT to put together that is provided to us for free.

      I buy full sheet labels and cut them apart (they are like a full sheet size sticker) this way I never have to worry about sticker size or print alignment.

    New here and this might be a dumb question, but here it goes. I noticed on the label instructions that some say thaw and some specify thaw in the refrigerator. When it says thaw does that mean take it out of the freezer in the morning and let it sit at room temp till dinner? When it says thaw in fridge, how long does it need to thaw in the fridge? Guess the real question is how long to thaw?

    Sorry for the dumb question, and thank you so much for this fantastic site.

      It looks like I need to be more consistent in writing the directions! You should thaw in the fridge in all the recipes. It depends on the recipe how long it will take to thaw, but I usually take it out of the freezer the night before or the morning of and place it in the fridge. A general rule is about 24 hours of fridge defrosting for every 5 pounds of food.

        Your directions are fantastic…I just need more help/info than most :P Thank you so much for the super quick response. Again, Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in to all of this.
