I'm joining the Friday 5 Link up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness. The theme today is food, and I LOVE talking about food!
Today I want to tell you about eating during Lent. I used to not observe Lent, but after my grandmother passed away, I chose to observe Lent in her memory. For anybody who is not Catholic, Lent is the 40 days leading up to Easter, in which we cannot have meat on Fridays and give up 1 (or more) thing that we enjoy for those 40 days. I gave up Cheesteaks.
I am not a vegetarian, and I have a deep respect for those who are vegetarians or vegans. Here are 5 meat free meals that are my favorites for meat free Fridays
1. Avocado Rolls - The new love of my life!
2 . Vegetable Hibachi at Tokyo Diner- It has the perfect ratio of broccoli and onions! and I love my onions a lot!!
3. Rice and eggs- when I was little, my mom used to make Mexican rice and boiled eggs. It was one of my favorite meals! It's so simple and so delicious! We call this our "we are broke" meal.
4. Chilaquiles - chilaquiles are simply nacho chips smothered in mole sauce. I top mine with cheese, potatoes, carrots, cabbage and cheese.
5. When all inspiration has left, there is always veggie and cheese pizza to fill up my belly! and I do love pizza very much!!
Do you observe Lent?
Did you even know what Lent was? lots of people at my office had no idea what lent was!
What is your favorite part of a pizza? The crust, melty cheese or the sause? for me is the cheese! Yums!!
Do you have a favorite Veggie?
