In about a week and a half, we will be entering the Apostle's Fast. As per the last post, I have created a set weekly menu for our meals during this time. I'd like to share our menu and possibly some recipes as I am able. Mary is my inspiration in this.
I don't know how far I'll get with this project during the Apostle's Fast, or even if I'll do much cooking from this menu--I'm about two weeks away from delivering a baby and my mother will be in town to take care of household tasks for a while. :) But I'll be recycling this menu for the Dormition Fast in August and can pick it up again then.
My menu may look much different from another family's fasting menu. I won't go into all the details--many will be obvious from looking at our menu. What one actually eats during a fast should be decided in consultation with one's spiritual father. I'm happy to answer any questions, though.
With that said, here is our proposed (and un-tested!) Apostle's Fast Menu:
One of the recipes on our menu is Moroccan Couscous Salad. I developed it from a favorite crock pot recipe from a Saving Dinner Menu Mailer.
A huge thank you to Mary for the inspiration to work on this; for layout, font, and illustration ideas (being an incredibly generous person, I know she won't mind how similar my pages look to hers); for tips on getting my Mac to create these images; and for all the amazing resources she provides. It has been a pleasure getting to know her a little through her blog.
