Yesterday's OAMC Results

Well, I thought that yesterday was going to be a total bust (with the stomach flu hitting our house and all) but as it turns out, I was actually able to cross a lot of things off of my OAMC master plan. I am still cooking away today, but I think we are going to be able to get it all finished up by late this afternoon! Yay! Check out yesterday's cooking results:

I've got my batch of brown rice cooling and my whole wheat waffles cooking....

The yummy pinto beans are cooling while I cook up some whole wheat spaghetti for spaghetti pie......

I have the shredded zucchini thawing out on the counter while the waffles cool down on racks...

Ta Da! Two baked spaghetti pies!

Ta Da! Two Chicken, Rice and Spinach Casseroles!


Ta Da! This is what I was left with when all the cooking was done!

Here is what is on the agenda for today:
Cook one batch of pinto beans (in progress)
Puree beans from yesterday to make refried beans
Assemble bean, rice and cheese burritos
Throw together a double batch of chili (beans and hamburger are ready to go)
Cook up black beans and freeze
Cook up chickpeas and freeze
Cook up small red beans and freeze
Hey- it's a "beans and rice" kind of life in this house!
Make a double batch of whole wheat pizza dough and freeze
Make cookies
Make rhubarb shortcake muffins
Make double batch of zucchini bread

Okay, I'm starting to panic a little now. That list is a little bit bigger than I thought it was going to be. Time to get my rear end in gear and get BUSY! I'll post my final OAMC results tonight (if I don't fall asleep on the couch at 8:00 like I did last night. Oops.)


  1. AMAZING! And I was in bed at 8, too, with not nearly the food in the freezer to show for it!


    I tried to post this on yesterdays post, but it got lost, I think. Paul's Grains is in Marshalltown, and I've purchased a lot of grain from them in the past. I don't know specifically if they have quinoa, but I have found their prices to be VERY reasonable. Might be worth checking out if you are going to be doing a lot with whole grain(s) in your recipes.

    And, we would love to have a bread making/play date date. Let me know what works for you!

  2. Reading your list makes me tired! I am thinking a rice and bean family like yours may enjoy reading some Skippy Jon Jones books.


  3. Could you post your recipes please?
