One of my 12 Labors of Lent was to observe the Ember Days during Lent. Yesterday was the first of the three.
I did well enough at first. Small breakfast. Then a shrimp po-boy for lunch. No snacks. No desserts. And then last night, I go to the fridge, and fill a small, simple bowl with....
RED BEANS AND RICE. RED BEANS WITH SAUSAGE AND TURKEY AND RICE!
I suck at this.
So today, as penance, I had a small pastry for breakfast and this for lunch.
Tacky Shack's Black Bean burger with sweet potato fries. Highly recommended.
And tomorrow, Lenten Friday, they have catfish nuggets on special! I think that's the same as chicken nuggets.
Good for Tacky Shack in sort of remembering FISH ON FRIDAY!
