notes: This was a stew recipe recommended by Rebecca, made for a Maundy Thursday meal at church; I made a double batch because I was suddenly worried that I hadn't made my assigned 10-12 servings. As usual, I had lots of leftovers. The recipe is from Extending the Table. Beans, curried tomato sauce, and cabbage. As Rebecca suggested, I omitted meat. It was good.

Tuesday: white bean stew with rosemary, garlic, and leg of lamb from the freezer; homemade flatbread (actually, flour tortillas, but this wasn't a Spanish meal, you know?); green salad with my signature vinaigrette, leftover pan eclairs
notes: The lamb was tough, but tasty.
Wednesday: leftover Easter hamballs, buttered noodles, and a green salad
Notes: We all screeched in the door from various directions at 6pm. Supper from the microwave. TV-dinners, Thrift-at-Home style!
Thursday: sesame noodles with first asparagus, blueberry ginger tart
Friday: Thai rice and beef with cilantro and chopped peanuts as garnishes, cabbage & lime salad, the rest of the blueberry tart
Notes: This was an excellent combo. My sister joined us for dinner before she and I went shopping together.
Saturday: black bean sweet potato enchilada bake with salsa, cilantro, and plain yogurt; green salad with Trisha's French dressing; tapioca pudding with strawberry sauce
Notes: My in-laws joined us for dinner after my father-in-law and husband were hanging drywall all afternoon. I wanted to have a hearty dinner that wasn't too much work for me as I was at a fundraising banquet earlier in the day. The tapioca and sauce was a real hit. I had the enchilada leftovers in my lunchbox today.
Sunday: roast beef, oven mashed potatoes with garlic, green salad with French, the leftover tapioca pudding with strawberry sauce
Notes: Trying to use up the garlic - it's starting to sprout.
