Once a Month Mom

So,  I came across this blog several months ago, when I was still pregnant.  At the time, I thought, "Oh yes.  I should compile all sorts of freezer meals, because once the baby is here, when will I be able to cook?"  And then she came a week and a half early, so all I had "compiled" was a giant bag of cranberry mini breads.  They are delicious, but not exactly meals!  But, truth be told, I really have no problem making dinner most nights; once in a while (usually Fridays or the weekend) I am tired of cooking and we get a pizza or takeout from Red Robin- but it really hasn't been difficult to keep cooking, surprisingly.

But I digress.

The other day, I was looking for a healthy cereal bar recipe, preferably one with apples in it (since they are one of John's favorites).  This is what I found: Apple Pie Cereal Bars!  Back to the awesome Once a Month Mom site I go!  The idea is that they compile a series of recipes for the month, and then one day you make a  huge pile of food and freeze it for dinners for the month.  They give you the recipes, but you can subscribe to the site for $8/month to access their shopping lists, secret freezer tricks, and portion-sizes multiplied up for your household.  Honestly, there are only two of us eating this right now, so I am just testing out a few recipes (because who doesn't like to try new things?) so we'll see how it goes.  This week, we are also going to try Pretzel Tofu with Mustard Marinade, and Cauliflower and Kale Pasta; they both look really good!  (Oh, and my goal today is to make the apple bars; I'm going to try to reduce the butter in the crust a little bit, but other than that it is on! I will let you know how it turns out!)
