Dinner on Shrove Tuesday Feb 28/17

Well I WAS going to make chana masala, but I think I might be making potato pancakes instead. I can't decide. Might have to do both!

Regardless of dinner, there will be a whole lot of dessert eating before Lent begins. Sheesh we have a lot of goodies to use up!

It is also "Fat Tuesday", which means Mardi Gras! Haven't decided on dinner.

Leftover pot roast and veggies.

Tonight will be pancakes, sausage, and bacon, and tomorrow I'll be fasting.

I'm still not sure what to give up for Lent. My church serves up to many cookies and sweets and think that might be a good start.

I have a book club meeting tonight, so dinner will be whatever snacks people bring. I'm taking salami, cheese and crackers with homemade mustard. DH is on his own.

Either beanless chili or spaghetti in meat sauce.

We're having the barbacoa I slow-cooked up a couple days ago. I need to push myself out of the house to do the little shopping that needs to be done this week - nothing but rain or cold the rest of the week. I want to nest after today. We'll be having barbacoa salads tonight if I don't buy another package of tortillas, though. Two "flats" won't be enough.

Shrove Tuesday: pancake day, which I always observe, and that my DH loves.
After that it's lean and mean because I always observe Lent, and then, after that and Holy Week, on Easter Sunday it's a day of celebration, and on Easter Monday it's a day out with friends, tripping the light fantastic, as we say over here.
