OAMM Cook Off

**Added 2/4/10 – Add your story/link up so that you can enter to win the great prizes listed below. You have until 2/8/10 at Midnight EST. The Once A Month Mom Cook Off is designed to motivate and inspire you to dive into once a month cooking (also referred to as power cooking, freezer cooking, oamc and bulk cooking). We want you to cook all or part of the February 2010 Once A Month Mom menu AND keep track of your spending on this project. It really isn’t too difficult of a task, especially when you are given all of the resources to accomplish it! OAMM Cook Off Throughout the month Amy from Amy’s Finer Things and I will be tracking our own spending towards our February cooking day. Amy will be bringing you some helpful hints for freezer cooking and will be chronicling her first time experience with a Once A Month Mom menu. Then, on a day(s) the first week of March, we will be tweeting, blogging and vlogging our experiences as we go. We will let you know when we will be cooking so that you can plan to join us. We would like you to do the same alongside us this month. When you are through, we want to hear all about your experience, either by reading it on your blog or in an email that you submit to us. Those of you that don’t have a blog, don’t worry! We will work to get your experiences posted on our sites so others can read about your triumphs and mishaps (yes, there will be mishaps)! And don’t fret, there is no one right way to do this. Some of you will have to make adjustments to the menu to suit your family, that is okay, we understand. The important part is that once you have completed your cooking day that you write about it either on your blog (make sure that you come and put your link in the linky that will be posted later this month) or email your story to us. We can’t wait to see what you have cooking in your kitchen this month! Happy Blogiversary and thank you for celebrating along with me.
