I know my preparation for Lent should focus on prayer. But mine appears to be on food. In anticipation for my 40 days of not eating out, I’ve been on a restaurant and take out extravaganza.
Friday – Mi Cocina: I tried a new dish which has shrimp in corn tortillas. It was good, but my favorite is still Mama’s Tacos.
Saturday – I Fratelli: Husband and I just had pizza and salad. But my dad, who was visiting in (disappointed)hopes of warmer weather, raved about his fettucine alfredo with grilled chicken.
Sunday – Chipotle: Chicken burritos for everyone! They always hit the spot.
I’m sure I will continue this extravaganza today and I have a brunch date with a friend for tomorrow, so Fat Tuesday is shaping up nicely. 🙂
I did manage to bake cookies yesterday. I made PW Oatmeal Crispies. I left out the pecans and added milk chocolate chips. They are so easy that even I couldn’t mess them up. I still don’t know what I think about having a cookie recipe which causes me to use Crisco. It creeps me out. I know PW loves butter, so there must be a good reason for her to use the Crisco instead of butter. I might keep hunting for a recipe with butter to try.
Happy President’s Day!
