Once-A-Month Cooking: Update

January 22, 2010

Thought I’d write a quick update on how the Once-A-Month dinners have turned out. I’ve been pretty impressed – tasty food, super quick to make, unique tastes, and husband and toddler loves them too.

Before this endeavor, I was a once-a-month frequent flyer at Dream Dinners. Now I love Dream Dinners, but it may be taking a back seat to this Once-A-Month strategy. I think this may be costing me less too. We’ll see after a few months of Once-A-Month meals.

Here’s a list of what I’ve cooked so far from Cycle A. I also noted the side dish I served with the dinner.

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Beef and Barley Soup

Stuffed Shells

Zanzibar Chicken (w/ brown rice)

Picadillo Chicken Pizza

Sloppy Joes (w/ oven-baked French fries)

Lime-Grilled Mahi Mahi (w/ lemon orzo and spinach)

Sweet Mustard-Glazed Salmon (w/ brown rice)

So far, I’d say the Picadillo Chicken Pizza and Beef and Barley Soup have been my favorites. These are two dinners I never would have thought to cook on my own.

Can’t wait to hear what others think of the dinners if you try them. You can read more about Once-A-Month Cooking, or visit their Web site.

    I am excited for your wonderful Dream Dinners experience. It is the ultimate buy in bulk and save way to have a home cooked dinner and does cost less than buying the same ingredients at a grocery store. It is also very eco friendly, so much less packaging when you buy in bulk. We actually have children on our tasting panels; it is amazing to see what kids will really eat. We put kids in a box when we only feed them “white foods”. Sounds like you are already in our Dream Rewards loyalty program, congrats! You can get more dinner ideas on my blog Take care.
