  • Do you have traditional meals for Ash Wednesday and Good Friday?
  • What’s your biggest challenge as you strive to follow the discipline of Meatless Fridays?

We’ve got the comment box open, but we’re going to do this one better and invite you to a Meatless Friday Link Party! Use the link-up tool below to add links to your blog posts with meatless recipes and Lenten ideas. Then check back over the next few days to see what other readers have shared. We’ll keep this link open for a week to give you plenty of time to share your recipes, tips, and traditions. Join the party!

  1. It has become a tradition in my home to have grilled-cheese sandwiches and clam chowder or tomato soup for dinner on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. While we might get pizza on other Meatless Fridays, we don’t do that on those two penitential days.

      • Wow, hers looks way more exciting than mine, I just tear up the tortillas, saute them in butter or oil till they are crispy – chewy and stir in beaten eggs (1 to 1 egg – tortilla ratio) and cook till eggs are done. Glad you found hers though, that would make a nice looking supper!

  2. For the past two Lents we did Lenten Challenges: Lent 2012 was just to do a pre-VII-style Lent (all but meatless, for lack of a better description). Lent 2013 we upped the ante and did a meatless Lent on a budget of $50/week for five people (none of them nursing), with 20 min or less to prepare each dinner from scratch–no convenience foods. That kicked my butt and taught me a lot about the life of the working poor. This year, while I probably won’t have time to blog all of it at my meatless Friday blog, we are going to do a tour of the world, using recipes from countries all over the world to see how it is to be poor in a country other than the USA. Now that I have older homeschooling kids to help me find recipes, it should be easier than last year. Or harder. We’ll find out in a few weeks!
