May 2010 OAMC: Spicing Things Up!



C helped me with OAMC this weekend! It was wonderful to not be alone in the kitchen all day. Happy Saturday to me! We only had 16 meals to make and I grossly miscalculated how much chicken we already had, and so we're left with an extra Costco bag for next month. True to form, I definitely modified almost every recipe from the cookbooks I told you about in my plan. So stay tuned for my version of these delicious freezer meals!

We made:

  • 2 Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches* [Homemade BBQ sauce that made our mouths water every time we opened the crock pot to stir it. YUM!]

  • 2 Chicken-Asparagus Pot Pies [More on this later.]

  • 2 Poppyseed Chicken [YES. C's favorite dish gone freezer style. I was giddy when I figured out this could be frozen!]

  • 2 Italian Chicken Rolls*

  • 2 Cheese Mushroom Burgers* [Really excited to try different combinations of fillings for these! Jalapenos are next on our list!]

  • 3 Lemon Chicken Marinades*

  • 2 Souvlaki Marinated Skewers

  • 1 Buffalo Chicken Pizza*

  • Homemade Refried Beans*

  • Homemade Baked Beans

  • Lemon-Dill Rice Mixes*

  • and 20 Whole Wheat Brown Bag Burros


We finished in just a couple hours so we decided to go ahead and make up the salsas we'd planned for Sunday. Holy Cow they're INCREDIBLE. We like things spicy! These salsas are about a 5 on a 1-8 scale. [The book's scale, not mine. Who makes a scale up to 8? Really.]

Still to make:

  • Blackberry Jam [Got a good recipe that uses Sure Jell? Please send it my way!]

  • Strawberry Jam [These were on sale $4.44 for 5 lbs. Jam time it is!]


The [*] indicates that the recipe will be up soon! I realize that almost the whole list is marked, but the [*] is more for my own notes than anything else. I have to remember what I promise! If you see one you'd LOVE the recipe to that isn't starred, just let me know in the comments and I'll add it to the list. The starred ones are just my favorites for now. If you need more ideas for OAMC recipes, be sure to check out my recipes page!
