Mommy TG's Recipes for Meatless Fridays of Lent and More

I was inspired last Lent to weekly share about some of the meatless recipes I know that are easy to prepare. I know that moms are always busy and it would be helpful to find recipes that they can quickly prepare even if they are not divas in the kitchen. It was also my way of reminding myself of other meal options I can include in our Lenten menu.

Surprisingly, these weekly posts got a lot of page views and most of these posts made their way to my Top 13 Posts for 2013. Thus, I've decided to write this post in preparation for Lent (which is starting tomorrow, Ash Wednesday) so that all the mommies who are cramming or who didn't have much time to do some menu planning before Lent can benefit from this post.

I'm arranging these posts in order of page views gained since I posted them last Lent (2013).

Let me also share with you my 4-Week Cycle Menu Plan for Lent, which I made years ago. Feel free to adapt or tweak it to suit your family's needs and preferences.

One of the reasons that I love writing and blogging is that I can go back to what I wrote in the past and benefit from my previous writings. With a blog, going back to these useful and helpful posts is much easier because there's a search button. :)

Thank God for these blessings!

Before I forget, I'd like to share another recipe for a truly blessed and meaningful Lent this year.

1. Marinate on God's Word daily. Let your soul soak in it for at least 15 minutes each day. You can make it 5-5-5. 5 minutes in the morning, 5 minutes at noon and 5 minutes before bed.

2. Add bits of Prayer throughout the day. Just like salt and pepper, this is best added not just at one point but at different times.

3. Add some more Forbearance and Patience. This would tenderize your soul and form your character.

4. Sprinkle generously with Love.

5. Last but not least, serve with a warm Smile on your lips.
Hope this post helps you this Lent and beyond! Don't forget to go to Mass tomorrow!
