Easter is fast approaching, and I know a lot of you give up red meat for lent, so for the rest of the month, I am going to post some Fish recipes for you to try.
Last year I gave up sugar for lent and it was hard, but wonderful for me, and my Spiritual and Physical health!
Anytime I was craving sugar, I replaced it with prayer time. I could tell when my craving hit, because daily I was praying a bit after lunch, and for sure after the kids went to bed, and I’d have normally gotten a bowl of ice cream!
Eating Fish for Lent sure doesn’t have to be boring! We take White Fish goes south of the border in these tasty Wraps!!!! They were delicious!
