Traditional May 2012 Menu
Spring is officially here and if your family is like mine, we’re busy with projects, tee-ball games, end of school activities, and trips to the park–leaving little time for dinner prep. But thanks to a day or two of freezer cooking each month, the hard work is already done and we can easily eat well and are less tempted to hit the drive thru.
May’s menu features many family-style meals. Maybe one of them will become a new favorite at your house?
The Traditional menu is designed for the “traditional” or “average American family”. It is favorites you would find in a majority of kitchens across the country. If you aren’t the average american family you may wish to try out one of or specialty menus. 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!

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:
- Lynn Baugh & Kim Wingard
