I was working furiously on a skirt Saturday evening and muttering about cooking honey-baked lentils (recipe in More with Less) for Sunday dinner. My husband overheard me and protested that he's not fond of honey-baked lentils - what?! And so it came about that he cooked Sunday dinner.
He found this recipe and made it Saturday night - and washed the dishes - while I sewed. I pretended that this was a typical Saturday evening at our house.
Sunday morning, he started a batch of whole wheat Italian bread in the borrowed bread machine. When we got home from church, we discovered that the bread machine paddle had goofed up and gotten baked into the loaf. Only the loaf's appearance was altered.
So we ate lentil stew with feta (but not mint), fresh bread, and a green salad with poppyseed dressing. Then I contributed gingerbread cookies with cheater Italian meringue and, for an old fashioned farmy touch, home canned peaches. It was a delicious lunch.
And I finished the skirt and wore it to church - come back for pictures sometime this week!
