We had a really nice weekend celebrating Easter and Tom’s birthday. On Friday night, after a very busy week, I realized I had not made a menu or any plan for the holiday dinner, beyond the idea that we were going to have lamb. So I sat down with my laptop with a new idea for organizing this. I searched online for the recipes that are in the cookbooks I own and cut and pasted them into an email. Then I went through those, and through the magic of cutting and pasting, which I am old enough to recognize to still be amazing, I made a menu, a shopping list, and a list of what I wanted to make and in what order.
