Kicking off the Lenten season

It's that time of year again...the time when Christians all over the world make a personal sacrafice in the name of Jesus Christ. It's a practice in self-discipline not punishment. It's a test of our self-control. This year the Hubby and I are giving up those things that are near and dear to us.

This year, as last, I have decided to give up Diet Coke. My beloved Diet Coke. I wake. I need a Diet Coke. Not coffee. Not tea. Diet Coke. Lunch? Diet Coke with whatever I'm having, please! Not anymore. :( I will miss my tasty and delicious Diet Coke. But the sense of accomplishment I have at the end of Lent is incredible. I have a huge sense of pride knowing that I was able to give up something I enjoy each and every day, several times a day.

So, for the next 40 days, you won't find this in my refrigerator...

Henry is giving up meat. Meat, people! That's huge for him. He's a total meat and potatoes guy. He will be going crazy by the end of the first week. I'm anxious to see how he does. I'm looking forward to trying lots of vegetarian recipes, which, by the way, I'll be enjoying with a glass of water. :(

So, for the next 40 days you won't find any of this in our refrigerator...
