Miscellaneous Updates

March 25th, 2015 at 08:27 am

The scale finally moved! 2.3 lbs. to go by next week to win this month of my Transformer dietbet.

I haven't really been posting about this, but SO and I have been looking at getting DD2. This one will be a female as we've learned it might be better to integrate a female dog into our pack. There is a great Pyr mix that turns 8 weeks early next week. We are 90% certain we are getting the all white female with black raccoon eyes. Her name will be Riley. All 'startup' costs associated with her will come out of our joint account, particularly SO's commission for the month. After that, we are done on the pet front. 2 DDs and 1 DC Smile

I've been reading into the concept of once a month cooking. Anyone have any experience with this? Pros...cons? Tips for starting out/handling it with a small freezer?

    Riley is the name of one of our cats. Smile Great job on the weight loss.

    It's a great pet name! Riley was also the name of DD1's mom. When SO suggested it as new puppy's name without even knowing that fact, it seemed meant to be. DC's name is Katniss, and DD1's name is Bouncer. I come from a family of all J's. It bothers me a bit that they're not all uniform, but the names seem to fit the animals, so I'm okay with it.

    I have found that it is easier to do double or triple batches than to do once a month cooking when you have limited freezer space. For example if I am making a lasagna, I will make an extra one for the freezer. If I am making enchiladas, I will make enough for 3 meals and freeze the extras. If I buy a bag of quarter pound hamburger patties I will cook them all up and freeze the extras. The other night I did 25 meatballs and froze what I didn't need for spaghetti that night.

    LuckyRobin, that was kind of my thought for easing into it. I'd read a suggestion somewhere that if you do make multiple batches of one meal each week, in several weeks, you'll have a decent stock in the freezer.
