Another no spend day and why I OAMC

April 17th, 2007 at 01:12 am

OAMC or once a month cooking. I don't do it every month. I actually love to cook, but when I have months where I am running from 7a-9p or later, I know I am going to go home and pickup something not healthy and expensive for me. If DH goes shopping to make something, it costs half the week's grocery bill.

If it's in the freezer, honestly a 5 minute microwave or even an hour baking while I take a shower/relax is easier than going out yet again. It's all about making it easy to save money and live a healthier life. At 9p if I have to think -- it's over with the fatty no thought place down the street wins.

    Ditto! You hit the nail on the head...right down to the 'husband picking up something at the grocery store for dinner' part!

    Sounds like a plan. That's one of the reasons we make enough for leftovers.

    I love having food in the freezer to grab & go! I don't really cook once a month, but I triple up my batches each time I cook, freeze the extras, and now I have a nice supply in the freezer.
