The Ham Plan – Part 3

Ham Plan page 1 | 2 | 3 The following recipes are adapted from Dinner’s Ready by Andrew Schloss and Ken Bookman, a “chain cooking” cookbook, where you make completely different meals out of leftovers from previous meals. Where there is a leftover used, I posted that recipe too, in case you wanted to do […]

The Ham Plan – Part 2

Ham Plan page 1 | 2 | 3 Sliced ham for sandwiches/dinner: Pretty self-explanatory, we also microwave or bake slices (wrapped in foil or covered) until nice and hot, serving with mashed potatoes and green beans. This is a perfect quick and easy dinner and doesn’t need a fancy sauce on top; it’s great by […]

The Ham Plan

Here is my “Ham Plan”. I am finding it easier and more economical to have bulk cooking plans for when meats and veggies are on sale or in season. I do a big cooking that lasts a few months (Hopefully! I am still new at this) so I don’t have to cook that particular meat again for a while.

The Chicken Plan – Part 2

Chicken Plan page 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 I only spent about 36 bucks! This is a really economical way to do chicken, and I think with practice, it won’t be so daunting (remember, we all had a first oamc! THAT seemed daunting too!) Do you think I am crazy yet? I am […]

The Chicken Plan

Here is the first plan I wrote, out of necessity! I couldn’t figure out how to deal with so many different parts of the chickens I was doing unless I had everything written down and the recipes gathered together… My Strategy – When dealing with meats that have different parts, you need to think about how you will use each to get the maximum amount of food for your dollar.

Here is how I handled chicken (the same approach can be used for turkey and many of these recipes will work for turkey).
