Menu Plan Monday: January 4 (AKA the Accidental OAMC)

Happy New Year!!!

As most of you know (or could learn by reading recent posts), I lost my oven at the beginning of December. Since we have to do a kitchen reno in order to replace it, it’s taking us a little time to get things done. In the meantime, I am emptying out my stockpile (finished that this past week) and creatively cooking with my electric skillet, microwave and toaster oven.

Today, however, I’m headed down the street to my mother-in-law’s, whose oven has two sections and is fully functional. She’s giving me the space to use today to cook my buns off. So, this month, I am an accidental Once A Month Cook. I’m cooking everything I can today using her kitchen and freezing for the month of January. I’m giving the full month today but I”ll still post weekly MPMs just to keep the blog active. 🙂  Items with asterisks (*) show ones that were cooked or prepared today.

  1. I am so impressed that you can plan that far in advance! Wow! I have a good friend who spent two years cooking with an electric skillet and a microwave while she and her husband were restoring an older home. It was amazing to see what all she could come up with. I hope you will come share your slow cooker recipes on Crock Pot Wednesday. Good luck with all of your cooking and have a great week.

  2. I too am living without an oven. I have resorted to using a tabletop roaster (like for turkeys) it does some stuff but not cakes lol Your plan looks great I hope suitNtie enjoys it…..Julie
