June Cooking Day

Our June cooking session went well today. I'm sorry to say I completely forgot about taking pictures until about 20 minutes after everyone went home and I saw the camera sitting there! Oh well. I will try to take photos of the meals as I cook them so at least you can see what the finished product looks like.

It took us about 2 1/2 hours to do our cooking today. We made Dr. Pepper Spaghetti, Caribbean Jerk Chicken, Cashew Chicken, Sausage and Spinach Quiche and Garlic Bread. We were able to split the spaghetti and the cashew chicken into two meals for each family. So 6 meals plus garlic bread for two meals. And the total bill came to just over $35 per person. This was quite an increase over last month when we spent less than $20, but we put meat in all our meals this time. Still, it's not bad, especially if you compare it to the cost of dining out for 6 meals!

Our freezers are full and our schedules are packed. We decided to skip July and we will get together again sometime in August. I will post our date and menu once it's been decided. In the meantime, feel free to search our archives for ideas. And I'm sure we will be updating the blog with more recipes to try even before August.
