Lent 2011


March 8, 2011 by Ellen V

Happy Mardis Gras!  Today, Eric and I will fatten ourselves on various meat sources as we prepare for a meat-free Lent.  Yes, we’ve committed to abstinence from meat until Easter.  Scary?  A little.  Exciting? Very.

This commitment will definitely change our eating habits over the next few weeks, and I’ll certainly be letting you know about the great (and not-so-great) vegetarian experiments.  We’ve been working more meatless meals into our diet over the last few weeks, and I am looking forward to even more adventures in eating.
