monday menu #12 for 2012

i'm excited for my menu this week.  why?  because i said so.
otter pop and i (mostly he) have been slaving over cleaning out the garage for the past few months.  we're really making progress, and finding things.  i love cleaning and finding things!  yesterday we found all our camping gear!!!  i had packed it all up nicely in a great big huge bin to where spiders couldn't (hopefully... i mean, that was the idea) get all up in it.  in the camping gear, i included this great big 10 quart dutch oven that my sister gave me years ago.  it was still brand new in its box! 
so, i'm excited that now it's a great size for the family we have and i also learned you can use it in your oven at home too.  so, i got out my dutch oven cookbook and ALL my recipes are from the book.  some of them i will use in the crock pot, but wooo hooo!  i'm excited. 

here's the menu:
  • beef stew and biscuits
  • taco soup
  • swiss chicken (crock pot) with green beans
  • fried rice with mongolian beef
  • russian chicken (crock pot) with corn and rice and cherry soda cobbler
  • crown rib roast w/ mashed potatoes and cauliflower...  only thing is i have no idea what a crown rib roast is, so that might put a damper on things.  we'll see...
maybe you could might expect some pictures and recipes for you this week...

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
