10 Recipes to Try During Lent

Posted by on Feb 23, 2012 in Random Thoughts | No Comments

I can’t believe Lent is here. Where has the time gone? Somehow it managed to slip up on me. To be more accurate, the idea of actually fasting for Lent slipped up on me. My church is doing the Daniel Fast (vegan fast) again this year and to be honest I’ve never made it all the way to Good Friday on a fast. Usually around week 2 I break down and it’s not because of an overwhelming desire to eat meat. It’s because of total and complete food boredom. I know it’s supposed to be a time of prayer and contemplation but all I could think of what how much I didn’t want to eat another salad.  This year I’m looking to my fellow bloggers for inspiration. I wanted to share 10 of the recipes on my must try list during this lenten season.
