Sukkot menu 2012 / 5773

 This year, the weather is pretty warm still, and we have no beef and a windfall of a LOT of chicken. A lot. So our menu is more chicken heavy than normal. We use the crockpot a lot to keep things going. I also have several days of dairy since our family prefers that overall.
