The week in food

It was a busy Holy Week for me in various kitchens, despite still being low energy.

Palm Sunday evening - per an inspiration from Nosheteria, I made savory palmiers with Pepperidge Farm puff pastry and goodies from Trader Joe's spreads section inside for the Evensong reception. The experiment in Liturgically Correct Food paid off.

Wednesday - made a double batch of dough for Mom's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Thursday - broke the bowl that the dough was in, scraped off the ceramic splinters, and rebowled it. Went to Berkeley Bowl to shop for lamb and was exhausted!

Friday - made Nigella Lawson's Banana Bread for Sunday and some hot cross bun dough before going shopping for our feed-the-homeless enterprise

Saturday - managed to burn the hot cross buns. Helped dye Easter Eggs for the church. Stayed out of the kitchen during the Feed-the-Homeless enterprise - we had two teams from the university doing an "Iron Chef Soup Kitchen".

Sunday - got through the early service on adrenaline and crashed hard. Ham, asparagus strata, and a mimosa revived me. I was a bit hungry when I got home but napped instead. Got to Trader Joe's just before they closed.

Today - finally marinated the lamb. Will probably cook it tomorrow as I have class tonight.
