I've been checking out this blog/site every once in a while, and I'm curiously wondering if it's something I want to do. I've often thought about trying Once A Month Cooking, and this really breaks it down and everything.
This link is for the May menu, and you do your shopping all through April and do your big cooking day at the end of April (and eat in May).
I think one drawback for me would be wanting to use at least some of my own recipes. Hmm, maybe I will just need to figure up my own OAMC menu, shopping list and prep-sheet :) I could still stockpile stuff when it's cheap (esp. meat, etc). I like their idea of shopping throughout the month for your ingredients so that you can get better prices/deals.
My wheels are turning.
