OAMC Day! OAMC Day! OAMC Day! OAMC Day! OAMC Day! OAMC Day!!!!!!!

Yay! I've got my spreadsheets and charts ready to go. I ran out of frozen meals a couple of weeks ago and I'm so thankful that our Once-A-Month-Cooking Day is finally here!!!

This month we're enjoying:
  • Mexican Chicken Manicotti
  • Spinach-Bacon Lasagna
  • Bacon-Wrapped Chicken
  • Way Easy Pork Stir Fry
  • Sweet Soy Marinated Chicken
  • Panko-Parmesan Oven-Fried Chicken
  • Sausage-Stuffed Shells
  • Spice-Rubbed Chicken Breasts
  • Chicken and Rice Wraps
  • Shaker Chicken and Noodle Soup
  • Molly's Sister-In-Law's Not Chili
  • Mexican Torta

A few of us are even doubling the number of meals we take home, since we're not cooking again until January. Hopefully 24 prepared meals will really help alleviate holiday stress! We went heavy on chicken recipes (about half), but threw in a couple beef and pork meals for variety.

I'm looking forward to a fun day in the kitchen with 7 other women and all that professional kitchen equipment! Yipes! It is so awesome to be able to bake 8 chickens simultaneously! And brown 24 lbs. of ground beef in ONE BATCH! (We will use our church's brand-spanking-new kitchen facility, since we are an officially sponsored outreach ministry now...God is so good!)

Just pray that we don't scorch anything...especially the church kitchen...........that would be bad.

what a totally awesome idea to get together and do it in the church kitchen!!! i've never done OAMC b/c the idea of it just overwhelms me...but sharing the job with 7 other ladies in a great big kitchen sounds like fun!!

It was a great day, Donna--thank you so much for directing!

Thanks, Rachel! It really was fun!!! Thanks to all our chefs, we came home with LOTS of great meals...and we had a great time cooking and cleaning together.

Jen, we really do love our OAMC group. We started out using our own kitchens, but then decided to ask our church if we could use the big kitchen. Now we can really get more food cooked for more families in the same amount of time or less. It's great!

I was tired after that big day, but it was also a lot of fun! I am thrilled to have meals to last through the holidays.....I already can't wait to OAMC again!!
