If you are interested in what fasting means and how it's structured I am sure you can find a good answer on http://orthodoxwiki.org I'm not going to reinvent the wheel trying to explain this topic. So assuming you understnad the fasting guidelines I will continue.. this is after all a cooking blog of sorts.
Last week a fellow blogger ADVENTURES OF AN ORTHODOX MOM shared a helpful menu planning system she found on another blog and I thought it looked like a good idea. I followed her instructions and adapted it to my organizational abilities and voila! Here it is!
So, really quick, I will let you know that this week I am hoping and "planning" on preparing:
MON- Fish Plaki in honor of The Annunciation.
WED- Veggie Soup with Fresh Bread Rolls
THURS- Spinach and Rice with Salad
FRI- Potatoes Plaki and Boca Burgers
SAT- Lenten Dolmathes
I have a busy week planned and I may not post them all. I might actually post other dishes that I have been working on. But I thought if I shared my plan with you, it might help you get started too. My biggest motivator in planning is that I don't want to get in a food rut and break the fast because I am bored or unprepared.
Have a blessed fast and good strength for the "good fight."
