**Indicates meals that require NO COOKING on your OAMC BIG DAY aka “throw and go” meals, perfect for the family who needs to adjust to just do the quick meals!

Document Update

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 November 2013 Vegetarian 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 Mom has to say about it.

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:

  • Melissa Wax- I live in Seattle, WA. I am a stay at home Mom with a 4 and 5 year old who attend a preschool co-op that I currently reside over as board chair. I enjoy cooking, photography, knitting, and exploring the city with my kids. I also am a fine art portrait photographer specializing in family, fine art, business, and events. You can view my work at www.melissawax.com.
  • Stacey Lorenz- I’m a stay-at-home mom to four great kids – 11, 8, 2 and 2.  I enjoy all things domestic, especially cooking and crafting.  You can read more about my kitchen adventures at simpleinthesuburbs.com!

    Thanks, the lasagne soup is in our slow cooker now as I type, headed this way for dinner tonight! We had only a small can of tomato paste but the equivalent of a 28oz can and a half of chopped tomatoes so I put that in instead with less added water. The recipe is very flexible. I am def going to try the slow cooker roasted winter veg too, we love roasted veg. Cheers!

      Katharine, don’t you love flexible slow cooker recipes? I do that all the time; not enough corn, throw in some extra carrots. :) Can’t wait to hear how it turns out!

    Dear Katie, it turned out so well, my toddlers wanted the leftovers a second night in a row. That only happens once every blue moon. It’s amazing how good this throw ‘n’ go recipe is! This is part of the permanent rotation :)
