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 or in-season menus.

The links below are just so you can see which recipes are included in this month's menu. WE DO THE WORK FOR YOU! To see freezer instructions and adapt recipes to your family size see the DOCUMENTS below.

Update: This menu is now available in Menu Builder in addition to the Google Docs below!  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 below labels in Menu Builder 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:

  • Jenna Fletcher I am a wife, mother of two young daughters, and a part time engineer. When I find some free time, I fill it with church, music, baking and all kinds of crafts from paper to fabric.
  • Katherine Chrans

    Thanks for including my pot roast on your menu!

    For some reason, this was not showing up in the paleo section… I discovered this by accident just today when I clicked the wrong thing (and I am so very happy I stumbled upon it! Making it this weekend!)

    I’m a member. Is it possible to download all information in a spreadsheet instead of saving one by one?

  4. [...] February 27, I took a little baby step, and did the February Mini Menu which consisted of 10 meals. All of them slowcooker. I was hooked. HOOKED. I rode my high and did [...]

    Coconut Chicken Curry recipe…link is for tofu not chicken?

    I finally bit the bullet and delved into OAM cooking, starting with this menu (and some from the June because I like breakfast). So far, this has been pretty tasty! My company is on a 9/80 schedule, so taking one of our off Fridays to get this done worked out really well – especially with DD in daycare for the day. I really hope another Paleo slow cooker menu comes around, and I’d be more than happy to be a guinea pig!

    Just completed my first OAMM cooking day. I selected this mini meal for my first try. I selected the single serving plan. Things went really well. I made extra of the Coconut Chicken Curry and Mexican Pork and Sweet Potato Stew in order to use up my can of tomato paste and fire roasted tomatoes. I plan to do another OAMM cooking day in two weeks with one of the other main meal plans.

      Way to Go!! You survived! A mini menu is the perfect trial run for your first big cooking day! Thanks for sharing and best of luck on your next cooking day!

      • Ronnie says:

        I selected the single serving option for this meal plan. I have never really used a crock pot except when helping my mother cook for big family meals. Do I have to purchase a small crock pot in order to cook such a small amount? Do I have to change the cooking times for just a small amount?

        • Kelly says:

          Hi Veronica! Yes you can use the smaller crockpots if you’d like. I think though the lunch crocks are just warmers and do not get to high temperatures to really cook the food. I think one just like this http://amzn.to/1mMYgE3 would be just perfect. And it’s not programmable. BUT you can use my “life hack”! You know those light timers you can buy to plug in your lights and they go on and off at times you want? http://amzn.to/1seqB7C Well simply plug your crockpot into one of these timers, then you set the time to go on and off, and when you get home your meal will be done! No fancy programming needed!

    Can’t see the cards (membership expired–hopefully will be back soon!), but did y’all adjust the chicken curry recipe to use a peanut-butter alternative since peanuts aren’t Paleo (or Whole30)? If not, do you know if anyone has had any luck using an alternative butter like almond?
