Have You Tried Once a Month Cooking?

When Jill mentioned once a month cooking, yesterday in 6 Ways to Change the Impact of Food on your Budget [1], I got sucked in and spent a bunch of time reading about once a month cooking [2].

We all know I am not a good cook [3], even though I try. (Although I have mastered Sue’s frugal chicken Soup [4] recipe and I do enjoy reading the chronicles of a friend who is writing a cookbook [5].)

Cooking seems like it should be enjoyable. However, every single day it seems like we need to eat again, which requires me to cook something again, ruining even the most perfect days!

Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I don’t mind cooking. But in reality, I’d much rather be researching the latest rewards credit card [6] or improving our asset allocation [7].

Once a Month Cooking

Once a month cooking implies I would only have to cook once a month, right? And because of stocking up on sale food [8] and using our new Foodsaver [9] I have tons of food in the house to use.

So I’m thinking of giving once a month cooking a go. Putting myself though a day of complete agony, but having an entire month to enjoy not cooking would be amazing!
