Once A Month Cooking




It may not make sense, but how you cook can be as important as what you cook.


We are talking about once-a-month cooking.  Basically, you plan out all your meals for the following month.  Get your calendar and make a meal plan for ALL your monthly meals.  


Once you have all your meals planned, you can plan your shopping.   You need to make sure you remember all the ingredients you will need for the month’s worth of cooking, including pans to store the product in your freezer after it is prepared.


Now, you can compare prices at all your local stores; remember the warehouse clubs.  But, don’t be fooled by the warehouse clubs.  Very often, it is actually more expensive to buy in bulk so compare ounce to ounce prices.


Plan out a cooking schedule.  You can boil several chickens at a time.  Put a turkey in the roaster while one is in the oven, that sort of thing.


You can also pre-chop veggies and put them in storage bags in your freezer to add to a crockpot meal later in the month.  


Once-a-month cooking works well with casseroles.  But, it also works with having things like lasagna or spaghetti ready to just heat and eat.


There are numerous book available at Amazon that will help you with planning and execution of the event.


Not only can this help with your food budget, but once-a-month cooking can also be a great way to get your family together for a day of work and fun.  It can also help you manage your time better throughout the month.


Another idea is to cook one type of meal each weekend, for example, one week beef, the next week chicken, the next week pork, and so forth.

Standing in the need of prayer




Friends,

We got a little bit of bad news today.  It seems my foot has gotten much worse.  The doctor said that it is likely that he will need to admit me to the hospital.  We go back next Monday to see.  

For us, this it terrible news.  On the one hand, it means that I am worse off health-wise.  I may lose my leg. On the other hand, it will be the straw that breaks the proverbial camel's back.

Going to the hospital means a major financial set back for us.  In addition to the gas which is necessary for Suzanne to travel back and forth over 60 miles each day, there are other expenses that happen while I am in the hospital that don't happen when I am here at home. And, I really need for Suzanne to stay with me as much as possible because I am a very brittle diabetic. 

It also means that our business will suffer.  We are just starting to hit our stride.  The YouTube channel brings in a few cents each day and Amazon brings in a few dollars each month.  Well, we earn this, but have not reached the payout level yet.

My laptop died so there is no way to do the blogs from the hospital.  

We have had so much on us lately, financially speaking, that we don't see anyway we can afford for me to be in the hospital. This will probably be the ten count for us.  Please keep us in your prayers.  God will heal my foot by next Monday.  Have a great Thanksgiving.

Prayer: 10 Most Powerful Prayers Every Struggling Christian Needs To Know by Benedict Francis

Notice: This post may  contain affiliate links. If you click a link and make a purchase, we may financially benefit from your transaction. Thank you for your support!

Everyone needs to pray.  Sometimes we feel overwhelmed and don’t know what to pray.  This IS okay, too. God has us covered.  All we have to do is pray and the Holy Spirit can take it from there (Romans 8:26-27).

Books like Prayer: 10 Most Powerful Prayers Every Struggling Christian Needs To Know by Benedict Francis help us to pray through hardship.

This book is well-written. There are a few minor typos but nothing serious.  You can still understand the ideas presented.
 
Five Star Review

We give Prayer all five stars.  We think it provides a great message and, if someone is wanting to improve their prayer life, this just might give them a good place to start.

Groceries/Food

If you are like most people, your grocery expense is one of the really big discretionary items where you tend to get a little lazy and spend more money than you need to.  

Let’s change that.  The first thing you should do is go to the store where you do the most shopping.  Introduce yourself to the store manager and explain that you are trying to save the most you can.

Ask the manager when the produce department marks down their produce.  Do the same with the meat, deli, and bakery sections.  You may wish to meet with the managers over those departments and tell them you are trying to save money and ask them when they mark down the various items.

If you have a local produce or meat market, you may wish to ask the owner/manager the same thing.  Remember to take notes.   

You may also want to repeat these steps at the various grocery stores in your area.  

Make a master list on a spreadsheet like Excel or better yet, Google Sheets.  List the various products you normally buy.  It may take you a little while to compile this list.  If you have old receipts, this will help you.  Make columns for the various stores in your area.  

Then, do a little reconnaissance.  You may find what you believed to be true is not really the case.  You may find one store is much cheaper on the things you buy than anywhere else.


Make your spreadsheet like the above example.  These prices above are made up and have no basis in fact.  They are for example only.  Keep your list updated constantly. When you notice a change in price, other than a sale price, update it in your spreadsheet program.

This is where Google Sheets is great.  You can input the prices using whatever device you choose.  Then, if you have a question while at a store, or want to update a price, you can use a smartphone to view and manipulate Google Sheets.

Check with your stores to see what their coupon policy is.  Will they double or even triple coupon values?  What is the store’s policy on electronic coupons, store loyalty cards, or coupons on your smartphone?

Always shop with a list!  If it is not on your list, don’t buy it.  Make a monthly menu plan and take advantage of once-a-month cooking.

Time is money.  This is so true when it comes to food.  It is certainly fast and easy to pick up a pizza for dinner, but at what cost?  Two pizzas could easily run you $35 from the pizza place.  What if you bought frozen?  You save a little money if you give up the time it takes to pop a frozen pizza in the oven.  Two good frozen pizzas will run you about $20.  You could go with two lower cost pizzas and shell out only about $8.00.

However, you could make your own crust, grate your own cheese, and make your own sauce for only pennies per slice.  This amounts to a big dollar savings but, it takes more of your time.

Want a fast family meal?  Go to one of those all-you-can eat buffets for about $16.99+ tax per person.  You could buy one or two of those frozen family meals for about $12 each.  

However, if one utilizes one-a-month cooking, buys ingredients in bulk, and prepares the meals together, they can create a whole month’s worth of meals for very little comparatively.

Combine once-a-month cooking with slow cooker (Crockpot) cooking and you have a way to feed your family for a whole month for much less.

First, plan your meals.  Look at your calendar.  Plan your meals around your schedule.  

For the nights when you have the least amount of time for cooking, you can make use of ingredients that have been prepared and frozen on the days you did your once-a-month cooking.  

You take the prepared ingredients out of the freezer in time to thaw in the refrigerator.  On the mornings you will have little time for prep and cooking, take the ingredients and place them in the crockpot.

Let it cook slowly while you work.  When you come home, you have a hot meal ready for you and the rest of your hungry family to eat.  What could be better?   

It is healthier and cheaper than something you pop in the microwave AND you know what is in it.
