It’s Worth Revisiting Wednesday over at Alison Gingras’s Reconciled to You. I’m just adding to their amazing linkup some access to one of my favorite Lenten challenges ever: The 2013 Fast, Cheap and Easy Challenge. It’s over on my old Meatless Friday blog Mrs. Mackerelsnapper, OP. The goal that Lent was to live in solidarity with the working poor:
- $50 weekly grocery budget for five people
- Meals had to be meatless.
- Meals had to be made from scratch.
- Meals had to be prepared in 20 minutes or less.
I learned SO MUCH THAT LENT. If you’re stuck for what to cook, I invite you to check out all those recipes, including Besan Pancakes and Carrot Salad (pictured above), where you’ll get to ponder as I did, “If I accidentally grate my thumb into the carrot salad, is that flesh meat?”
I apologize for the lack of pictures in so many of those recipes. It was before the dawn of Pinterest.
