Crystal over at MoneySavingMom and Jessica at Life As Mom are hosting a virtual “Once A Month Cooking” session. This is the first time I’ve participated and decided to do the majority of my work on Sunday since I’m working Monday before prepping for Tuesday’s class.
My first dish was chicken alfredo pasta using up leftover chicken from the crockpot. That went into the oven and I mixed up brownies (from a mix) and twenty minutes in tossed some goodies on top:
Brownies with chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Probably won’t last all month…
Then I finished up another pasta dish, this one heavy on the vegetables. I’m thinking about grilling up the steak from the freezer this week if the weather holds out.
Tomorrow I’ll finish up my cooking “day” with scrambled eggs since I’ve got a short time to finish up nearly 2 dozen eggs and brownies only use so many eggs.
While I’m nowhere near an expert at this type of cooking it does help save money because instead of stopping at the grocery store I know there’s food ready at home. Plus cleaning out the pantry is always a money and time saver for me!
