February Menu Planning - An Update...
Well, it seems as though I forgot that Lent started in February when I was doing my February Menu Plan. Which explains why I had hamburgers on the menu for Friday night - a no meat night - or as we call it around here "Fish Friday".
It is widely known that Catholics must abstain from meat on Fridays during Lent. We try to follow that here at September Acres. So I have switched around my menu for this week so we'll have salmon for dinner. This past week was a bit tricky since I just realized my error Thursday night. Now, don't judge me but I headed out to Safeway Friday afternoon and found the fish stick aisle and purchased our fish. LM had a basketball game so it was a nice, quick meal to put together before the game. It's been a couple of years since we've had fish sticks - LM was thrilled but my husband was just reminded of his childhood when they had fish sticks every. single. Friday. night. Thirteen kids means there's not a lot of lobster or shrimp on Fridays.
Even with a well thought out menu plan we're bound to need to make some changes here and there. But rest assured that I will be better prepared for Friday nights during March. No fish sticks, I promise.
