Menu Monday




Sorry I'm a little late with this.  My Marine's brother and his family were visiting us over the weekend and we spent all day yesterday with them before they headed back to Portland this morning. 

Lent started this week for me (Byzantine Catholics start Lent on the Monday before Ash Wednesday), so yesterday was a meat-free day for me.  Over the next few weeks, I'm going to have to try to be creative with meat-free meals so that I'm not repeating tuna casserole every week.  Good thing is that my mom is coming for a visit and she makes the BEST salmon cakes EVER!  YUM!

Wow! It's been a while since I visited so I browsed around. Thanks for sharing about your faith and expression of Lent. I'm Protestant but am doing a "whole foods" fast giving up anything processed and not whole.
I love your menu, it gave me some great ideas for next week (haven't done tuna in a while and meatballs in spaghetti will be a nice treat!)

Have a blessed Lenten season!
