Traditional October 2013 Menu
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 our 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!

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.
Are you a person that likes to see the menus visually? Perhaps you should check out the October 2013 Traditional Menu via Pinterest to see the yummy goodness you will be cooking up on this menu. Not sure what Pinterest is all about, check out what Once A Month Meals has to say about it.
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:
- Maggie Kennedy – I’m a 29-year-old mother to four amazing, spunky kids, aged 1, 4, 7 and 9. I work full-time as an accountant (commuting about 2 hours/day in Denver) and my husband works very long hours, so as you can imagine, I don’t have a whole lot of time to cook dinner during the week (or think, or sleep. :) ) However, I love to cook, and I really value being able to feed my family nutritious, home-cooked meals. Freezer cooking is the solution, and I’m not sure how we ever lived without it! I can come home from work, stick something in the oven, take the kids around to their activities, and come home to a good, hot meal. I love it!!
Are you new to Once A Month Meals or once a month cooking (oamc) in general? If so, you might want to spend a few minutes (or hours) on the Get Started Series. If you are in a real hurry to catch on we have written some simple steps for getting started. Welcome!
