OPOC Crocktober Fest!

OPOC = One Prep One Cleanup (the BEST part about cooking this way!) 


Yesterday I spent a total of 5 hours Planning, Shopping, Chopping, Bagging and Freezing 15 meals for my family to eat this month.  While 5 hours seems like a really long time, it really breaks down to this:


45 minutes:     searching for recipes, making a shopping list of ingredients

15 minutes:     matching coupons to a few of the items needed

1.5 hours:        driving to store, shopping for list, driving home

2 hours:           organize items, chop veggies, put together bags by recipe

30 minutes:    place bags in freezer, clean up and...done! 

Although 5 hours seems like a chunk of time, I estimate I save at least 30 hours over the course of a month from having to plan, prepare and cook dinner!  Well worth it for me!


Here's where we begin:


I plan my meals and list right here and break down the days by for October, under Mondays, it looks like


Oct 1

Oct 8

Oct 15

Oct 22

Oct 29


A link to my favorite (*pretty*)  grocery list / meal planner!

If you want to make ALL of these recipes and try my 5 hour marathon, here's what to do!







helpful tips:  Label Each bag before adding ingredients

after adding ingredients to bags, make room in your freezer for a bunch of yummy meals!


The best part:  ONE CLEANUP!  Here are the dishes that I had to clean. Once.  there was a whole separate bag of cans and veggie scraps that were discarded.  But this is it!


Now...on to the recipes!


Here are my favorite recipes from my One Prep One Cleanup Crocktober Fest!


Beef Stroganoff

{Recipe is for 1 meal since no bag freezing is necessary. Double if you'd like 2 separate meals}

2-8 oz can Beef Broth, plus 1 can filled with warm water

2 tsp Salt, pepper to taste

*In crock pot add meat cubes, salt and pepper, and then uncooked noodles on top of meat.
*Then add beef broth, water, sour cream, and mushroom soup.
*Cook on low heat for at least 6 hours

The soup, broth & water will make a tasty broth with the sour cream, meat and noodles.

Happy Mother's Day!

And it was a very Happy Mother's Day to me!  Kris woke me up with a cup of coffee and some sweet music playing while he went downstairs to make a big breakfast (my favorite!).  Once I made my way downstairs, I was greeted by a slideshow of pictures of some favorite Mommy Memories that he created along with a big hug and kiss from my special little girl:)

We got all dolled up and headed to church then out to the Strawberry patch at Wegmeyer Farms!  This was surely Kayden's favorite part of the day! The weather was beautiful and it made our little lunchtime picnic just perfect.  Here are some shots from the day:

Perfect ending to a perfect day:)

Kayden's Room Transformation

Kayden's Room Transformation

It took Kris and I (mainly Kris's grunt work, and my head-overseer pointy-finger work) about a week and a half to move Kayden into her big girl room and make way for girly #2.

We were really excited to find all of our furniture at On a Whim antiques in Lucketts and sell my old college furniture on Craigslist!  Here's how it all went down:

Painted the closet grey, removed shelf, raised it up higher, added the lower shelf, painted trim and doors white and added oil rubbed bronze hardware.

Painted whole room bubble gum pink and the breadboard trim white along with the ceiling. Hung Kayden's name sign about 28 times before Kris got it straight:)
Headboard from On A Whim: $165 - bedding from Home Goods

Side Table: on a Whim $50 and blanket chest $125

Book Shelf: On a whim: $65

Dresser: $125 (right!!)  and mirror $90  - this wall will later become a collage full of Kayden's artwork and our crafty projects together:)

The little lady has been sleeping like a princess each night - she's totally loving her Big Girl Room!
