Welcome to the first Menu Monday of 2010. My Christmas wish came true – I received a slow cooker.  Now I have to work on adjusting my cooking style and get even better at planning ahead.

I have been reading slow cooker recipe books, where the best advice I have read so far is to prepare the ingredients the night before then they are ready to go in the morning.

Monday – Chicken with forty cloves of garlic. This recipe was the one I use before in a clay oven; the only change I made was to take the chicken out of the slow cooker putting it in a hot oven to crisp it up a bit.

Tuesday – Chili in the slow cooker.

Wednesday – Chicken with broccoli, using leftover chicken.

Thursday – Spicy black bean soup made in the slow cooker. I am on the look out for a recipe, do you have one?

Friday – More chili

Saturday – Lamb Tagine I think this recipe sounds good but I might omit the aubergine(eggplant)

Sunday – Leftovers from all that slow cooking.
