Wednesday's Your Table: fast and practical

We've gotten a lot of questions recently about how to cook cheaper and faster. It's always a popular subject, so we've put together a collection of recipes that use potatoes -- does it get any cheaper -- and a microwave.

This isn't rehashed leftovers. We've got lasagna, vegetable stacks, potatoes au gratin and everything you can do with a potato: all in 30 minutes flat.

In addition to the practical potato, there's a series of stories looking at sourdough bread and how to make your own starter. Prudence Hilburn has a tasty vegetable casserole, and Pitcher This, our local beer column, updates the beer legislation.

Happy eating.
