No meat for 40 days

Yup, you read that right. It’s Lent, so as a part of our reflection for this season, C and I decided that we’re going to not eat meat. Well, with a few exceptions. We can eat it on Sundays, which helps because we’re at marriage prep classes for the next seven weeks on Sundays. And we’ll eat it if we’re at someone’s house and they’re serving it. So for the next 40 some odd days, we’re going vegetarian, which is a heck of a lot better than last year when we didn’t drink beer (except for on St. Patrick’s Day, cause not drinking beer on that day just seems wrong).

Friday, we went our separate ways. C had poker with some guy friends and I went bowling with some coworkers for a coworker’s last day. Saturday, I made margarita calzones (http://www.yourhomebasedmom.com/margarita-calzone/). These were super good and pretty basic and there are LOADS of margarita cal zone recipes out there. C made the dough from a Cooks Illustrated recipe. The great thing about these cal zones were that they easily made four servings each so we had lunch for today. We like pizza but calzones are always fun to experiment with. The next few weeks should be interesting. I am making black bean and quinoa cakes tomorrow which should be interesting too.

In other news, we close on the house two weeks from tomorrow. So exciting!!!!! We’ve started cleaning C’s stuff and packing up his stuff and I am starting the purge in my apartment. I have tomorrow off so I will spend time cleaning and organizing.
