My cupboards are packed with peanut butter and jelly, mushroom soup and a few tins of sardines. My freezer holds boxes of fish sticks and a sack of shrimp for some special pre-Easter occasion.
Lent is here and that means, at least for me this year, abstaining from meat and amending unhealthy behaviors.
In a quest to bolster my usual ho-hum approach to Lent, I'm trying to avoid meat through Easter. Yep, 40 days without steak, hamburger and pork chops. Call it an effort at self-denial and penance for years of eating poorly.
