I can't believe Lent starts today. Way too early. Before I was thinking of giving up meat entirely (especially once I saw some article saying the FDA has approved using cloned animals for food, and that packaging does not have to specify that it is a cloned animal) but then on Sunday I realized it started this Wednesday and I wasn't mentally prepared to do it. Instead I am giving up fast food. That's a biggie! I would rather spend 40 minutes going and getting food than 20 minutes making something myself.
Oh, and just to keep the tradition alive, I am also giving up Dr. Pepper. Hopefully I will break the tradition and actually make it through lent without having any. Luckily it isn't under penalty of sin!

3 people are laughing with me:

I was thinking about you and your Dr. Pepper. Very good of you to give up fast food AND Dr. Pepper. I'm impressed. Good luck.

I gave up meat once. Went totally veg. Here is the scoop. We went vegetarian (not vegan) for several months one fall and winter. We never got a cold. Not one. But... it got to the point that, well, how to put this delicately... hmmm... we had to be within range of a toilet at all times, had a good stock of Imodium or pepto... if you know what I mean.
I don't know why this happened, but it happened to us all.
So we actually have vegetarian days, lol.
If you ever want some recipes, or ideas for something different that the kids might actually eat, let me know!
