Lenten Food- love it or leave it

Every year I buy a new cookbook for Lent,  to cheer me on the journey.  This year it’s 101 Things to do with Tofu. I fixed the sloppy joes today.  They were pretty good for Lenten food but nothing you would ever eat if it wasn’t Lent.  This is my husband’s first Lent as an Orthodox Christian and he’s being a very good sport about it all.  He had resisted converting to Orthodoxy because of the fasts- he had the mistaken idea that if he didn’t keep the fasts it would be sin.  When Fr. J. explained to him that Lent was for him and his growth,  all his objections fell away.  It’s a chance to practice denying ourselves in the little things so we will be able to deny ourselves if something big comes up.

    “They were pretty good for Lenten food but nothing you would ever eat if it wasn’t Lent.”

    We may be closer on this debate then I had once thought.
