No more cooking for me this week

Last night I made a mega-batch of meat-free minestrone. And I can't even give the recipe, because I just winged it, and besides, no one wants a recipe for an 8-liter (2 gallon) batch of soup. After seven of us ate supper (dinner) last night, these two jars were left over (about 5 liters, or 1 gallon and 1 quart. The Campells soup can is just there for scale). This soup plus the leftovers already in the fridge should hold us the rest of the week. I plan to do some Easter baking later this week (sticky cinnamon rolls, poppyseed loaf--a Slavic thing, potato buns) so I'll be busy enough in the kitchen without having to worry about my daily nemesis (cooking dinner/supper).
