Monthly Cooking Day

I really wasn't feeling like cooking today, but I knew it had to be done. sigh

This is the result & disaster that I was left with:

Cheesy beef noodle casserole, bbq chicken (it looks burnt in this pic, but it wasn't, I promise), meatloaf, shepherd's pie, and chicken & rice casserole. There's also still some chopped bbq chicken & roast chicken breast from last month - plus taco meat that I cooked Saturday. I'd say Luke's pretty set for March. As for me, well I think I'm gonna try just eating kefir or yogurt & granola for lunch, with fruit as a snack, then I'll make (and eat) the usual veggies to go along with whatever Luke picks for the evening. I also have LOTS of frozen beans. I love beans. :)
Actually, the aftermath was way worse than that pic leads you to believe. The entire kitchen is a nightmare, but I thought I'd spare myself that embarrassment. ;) I did also bake some really yummy granola and some granola bars. I am beat!
Hope everyone's off to a good start for March!

That's an awesome idea... are those meals for his lunches and dinners?

I still don't know how you do it. I don't like to cook 1 meal more alone a month of meals! Luke's a lucky boy!

I'm impressed! I've gotten better about cooking from scratch but I can't do more than one meal a day. I love the idea of having it all done at once, I just don't want to be the one to do it ;)

Kristin, he eats it for either an/or both. It just depends on what he feels like & whether or not I make enough for dinner wihtout meat. ('Cause I don't generally cook meat for dinner since I don't eat it.)
Chrystyna, I love to cook, so it's no biggie to me. I feel like I'm using my (expensive) degree for SOMETHING. lol
