March Menu

March is here and that means spring is right around the corner.  When the weather warms up the last place you are going to want to be is stuck inside your kitchen, so why not stock your freezer now and go out and play when the weather warms up?!  This month's menu offers a variety of meals that are sure to please the taste buds of even the pickiest eaters in your household. 

I'm trying a new way to upload the recipes and grocery lists this month.  You can still check out each recipe individually by clicking on its named hyperlink, or click on the google document (FOUND HERE) for a print out of all of the recipes and instructions on freezing.  I will also have a google document for your shopping list.  Just print and take it with you when you head out to the store.  The prep sheet will give you a heads up on what to prepare the day before you cook and the most efficient way to cook on your OAMC day. 

March Menu

Here are the rest of the documents you will need:

March Shopping List

March Prep Sheet and Coooking Day Sheet

Happy Cooking! 
Slow Cooker French Dips- An easy recipe to kick off your cooking day.  Serve with French Fries and dip them in the sauce! 
Arroz Con Pollo- Lightened Up- Because everybody loves this traditional chicken and rice Mexican dish, but our waistlines do not!  Don't be frightened by the strange sounding ingredients in this one.  Sazon and Adobo powder are easily found on your grocer's International Aisle.
Monterey Stuffed Chicken (Adapted from More Don't Panic, Dinner's In The Freezer cookbook)-  Chicken and Cheese all wrapped into a little bundle.  What's not to love?
Asian Glazed Drumsticks- They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  Judging from the picture taken from here,  these babies are sayin "get in my belly!"
Green Bean & Chicken Casserole- A warm southern comfort food dish that it sure to please.
Taco Filled ShellsIs it Italian night or Mexican night at your house?  When it's too tough to decide, choose these fun tasty treats!
Butternut Squash Lasagna (Adapted from More Don't Panic, Dinner's In The Freezer Cookbook)- Not your average Lasagna.  Warm, creamy, and a Vegetarian favorite. 
Asian Flank Steak  (Adapted from More Don't Panic, Dinner's In The Freezer Cookbook)- Don't shortchange yourself here, splurge on the skirt steak and you will have a delicious, tender cut of meat.  Great to cut up and serve over veggies and rice. 
Mini Meatloaves- Aren't these little minis so cute?   Use your muffin pan to make these. What a quick meal to just pop in the microwave when you are short on time!
Italian Sausage Quiche- Serve with soup and call it dinner, or serve it for brunch.  So versatile and so delicious. 
Ham & Potato Casserole- One word- YUM-O!

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Banana Pancakes-  We just upped the nutritional value of a traditional pancake.  These are too hard to resist! 
Egg’wiches- Ham egg cheese on toasted English muffin.- Because we are creatures of habit!  One of our favorite breakfast sandwiches are back!  Use sausage, ham, or bacon, whatever you like.  It's all good!
