Lenten Soup and Bread
I know I haven't posted much about our Lenten plans yet, other than we've given up sweets (unless you are Special K and then you've forgotten already). I'm hoping to take the children to daily mass at least once a week and to Stations of the Cross on Friday evenings. Confession is always on the list and then so is extra time spent in prayer. I'm beginning a new Lenten tradition tonight. We are going to make a vegetarian soup and homemade bread for supper. I'm using Twelve Months of Monstary Soups and The Secrets of Jesuit Breadmaking as sources for new recipes. Tonight our menu will consist of Red Bean and Rice Soup paired with Irish Brown Bread. I think that sounds pretty hardy. I'll post our Lenten Friday fare at the end of posts I write on Fridays as well as a quick review of the recipe we used the week before. I hope you all continue to have a Blessed and Holy Lent.
