Many people who celebrate Lent, go meatless on Fridays. I thought it might be fun to share some meal planning ideas & recipes that could make those Friday dinners more interesting for the whole family.
I encourage comfort food meals. Because during the Lenten season, it can be all too easy to focus on what you're giving up. Why not add comfort?
Today's meal idea is Mexican Mashed Potatoes. Um, yes! :)
Although I have to admit that for anything spicy, my tummy tries to say no, what could be more comforting than mashed potatoes? But my son gets bored pretty quickly with mashed potato meals, so this might be just the thing he'll like.
Would your family like it, too?
Keeping it short and sweet today, so I'll see you next time. Have a wonderful weekend!
Edited to add: an interesting thing has happened in the comments. Almost everyone, so far, has responded as if I am suggesting that they make mashed potatoes a part of their regular diet.
Now, I don't have a dog in the fight about whether or not mashed potatoes are good for you or not. But I do want to clarify that that was not my suggestion.
I recommended comfort food for Friday meals during Lent, and I think there are six Fridays altogether? So Mexican Mashed Potatoes could be one of those six meals.
I wasn't recommending a permanent change to anyone's diet, and I am not trying to weigh in on what is healthy and what is not.
