Along those lines, perhaps these Florilegium files might be of interest. I don't know how close you are holding to he medieval restrictions of Lent, but perhaps the menus may be useful for those looking for food ideas for themselves or for a feast.

fasts-msg (82K) 3/12/14 Fasts and fastdays. Food restrictions.

fish-feast-art (6K) 3/29/00 Details and recipes for a mid-Lent "fish feast" by Rudd Rayfield.

Lenten-Fst-mnu-art (9K) 4/ 4/04 The menu for a small feast in Lent by Brekke Franksdottir.

Mid-Lent-Dnnr-art (7K) 4/27/01 A Mid-Lenten dinner by Rudd Rayfield.

Of course there are also various recipes in the files on almond milk, fish, beaver and such that were seen in medieval times as permissible during Lent.
