Monthly Meal Plan: January 2010

Last month while planning our monthly meal plan, I had cooked up some chicken quarters and shredded them for the different casseroles I had planned throughout the month.  This month, I'm going to try making up one casserole and making enough for 3 dinners.  In preparation for this, I have already cooked the chicken quarters in the crockpots and have them ready to go for my freezer/cooking day.  I've been looking through my copy of Joy of Cooking: 75th Anniversary Edition - 2006.  There is a pretty yummy looking recipe for Swedish Meatballs I'm planning to make and pre-cook on freezer/cooking day.  In addition to making more Mexican Style Chili Beans, Pizza dough, Chocolate Chip Granola Bars and Cinnamon Raisin Granola Bars, I'm going to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, Breakfast Burritos (in an effort to cut down costs for eating breakfast out) and Apple Cinnamon Pancakes.

How are you converting the recipe you linked to for the citrus pork for slow cooker? I bought that Boston Butt at Publix on sale too and was going to make BBQ but that recipe looks yummy - might make that instead. :)
