I scaled back my initial list and brought it down to five reasonably manageable items, doable in the 90 minutes I had once John and I completed our grocery run late Saturday afternoon. On the plate: sweet onion bake, zesty roasted broccoli, carrot ginger fondant, feta-stuffed sweet peppers, and golden sweet cornbread.
Forgotten in the fridge was a big batch of homemade applesauce I prepared late Saturday afternoon, though!
