June's Big Cooking Day

Success is mine!
It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and I got done cooking a lot sooner this time than I did last month. I think that it's mainly because I started making a few things the night before. There were a couple of things that I didn't get around to making, but then there were also a couple dishes that I made more of...like the chicken fried rice and the pulled pork. It helped a lot that I was able to use my mother-in-law's crock pot. I only have one small one and hers is huge (Thanks Jane!).

I also realized that I still have a few dinners left in the freezer from last month's big cooking day!!
Now that I know I'm going to stick with this type of cooking, I think I need to invest in some large cookware, mixing bowls and possibly some more baking sheets.

Breakfast:
  • Chocolate chip and banana pancakes (x 5)
  • Rainbow Pancakes (x 5)
Sides:

Dinners:

I really want to try making these Cinnamon Rolls next time. They look delicious and don't seem like they would be that bad for you...

If you want more menu ideas or recipes then you can check out Life as a Mom. If you're thinking about doing this type of cooking she's got so much helpful information to get you started.

Another great site that has information and menus for each week is Orgjunkie.com. She hosts Menu Plan Monday at the beginning of each week and other bloggers link up and post their menus and recipes too.
