Here are my planned weekly meals:
Sunday - tomato or potato soup
Monday - taco soup
Tuesday - bean chimichangas and Spanish rice
Wednesday - white bean and kale soup
Thursday - shrimp, wild rice and canned vegetables
Friday - tortilla soup or red beans and rice
Saturday - shrimp spring rolls and fried riceI am also planning to try a few new recipes from the When We Fast blog (see side bar) and will incorporate those in occasionally.
This year we are also starting a new tradition - cleaning for clean week! We will be doing only minimal school (math and Latin), and devoting the week to spring cleaning, and church of course, as there is a service every night next week. I am oddly excited, knowing it is always a challenge, but looking forward to this period of preparation to celebrate the Feast of Feasts, Pascha.
"Let us fast an acceptable and very pleasing fast to the Lord. True fast is the estrangement from evil, temperance of tongue, abstinence from anger, separation from desires, slander, falsehood, perjury. Privation of these is true fasting."
St. Basil the Great
