In order to save some grocery money to do a OAMC day, I’ve decided to clean out the panty/freezer/fridge. I made a quick trip to the store last night for milk, veggies, fruit and a few pieces of meat.

Here is what I have to work with:

  • 20 lb turkey
  • 5 lb whole chicken
  • 3 lbs bs chicken
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 3 lb beef roast
  • frozen veggies
  • applesauce
  • rice
  • whole wheat tortillas
  • dry red beans
  • canned tomatoes
  • canned veggies
  • potatoes
  • frozen hash browns
  • eggs
  • shredded cheese
  • baking goods to make some yummy treats
  • lots of odds and ends too!

Hopefully by the end of the day, I’ll have some kind of menu worked up! I think this is going to be fun…want to join me?


Everything is going great! By lunch time we had more than 1/2 done and the kitchen was not in bad shape. I have pictures to share, but I’ll have to do that tonight…still have lots to do before bed, so I better get moving!

Here’s the list so far:

2 Turkey and Stuffing Casseroles
2 Turkey and Broccoli Casseroles
1 crockpot full of Spaghetti Sauce
2 Peanut Butter Asian Pork
1 big batch Swiss Steak

Left to do:
Turkey Noodles
Cranberry Cream Cheese French Toast
Bacon Brunch Bites

Back to work…

Ok…here we go! If you are just joining us, HERE is the link to find out what we’re doing. I thought I would give a little Good Morning to anyone joining us for the day. I’m sitting here finishing my coffee and then it’s off to start cooking. My mom will be here in an hour and I hope to have most of the prep work done by then. Because life happens, I didn’t get everything I wanted to accomplish done yesterday AND because I sometimes forget to write things down…I’ll be cooking by myself for awhile this afternoon. I’m very thankful that my mom is coming down to help and that she is willing to take my oldest to an orthodontist appt that I forgot about! I may even see if she’ll take my son too, because he LOVES going and playing there (it doesn’t hurt that they have a kiddie movie room with little kid recliners, a plasma TV and snacks)!

Anyway…slow start to my morning and I’ve had to switch some things up a bit as far as recipes go. I’ll be posting bits and pieces and hopefully some pictures, throughout the day. Don’t forget to leave a link to your OAM cooking day!

Money Saving Mom is also hosting a cooking day…check it out!
