>Does a feast for 70 count? :)
  This weekend: bread. I plan to freeze it and thaw before the feast or I
won't have time to make everything.   **** I sometimes take it out before
it gets brown and then freeze it.  tat way when I defrost it I stick it
back in and get it brown.  How come you're doing it early?  Don't you need
to wait to the last minute? (grin)

	One thing I have tried is sprouting herb seeds and using them over
the tops of the finished dishes.  It adds a bit of green and a very mild
fresh taste.  They are also good in salads. My herb garden, unfortunately
has gotten smaller so I have plenty of left over seeds. It's a good way not
to waste seeds.   I tend to get too many any way.   You can do radish seeds
and that adds a peppery bit as well.   I don't know about period, but
during our cold (!?!) winters down here (when we have them), I get sad for
a bit of green....

	What did you decide on serving?   What herbs are you using?

I know you'll do fine--- It's just that last little bit of panic.... when
is the feast by the way.
