Nativity Fast Menu

First, these easy muffins (but omitting the cloves) are definitely going into rotation as an after-school snack.

Second, you can visit the Menu document here for ideas. I haven't been able to link all the meals to recipes, but many of these recipes are on this blog in the "Fasting" section.

Third, this one is for those of you not in the US, who can't get Jiffy cornmeal pancake mix. You can mix up your own batch! This a great for these yummy staples: Cornmeal pancakes: add 2/3c soy/rice milk and a bit of egg-replacer
Tamale Pie: saute onions, beans, green chiles for the pie filling, then top with Jiffy mixed with 1/2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, and 1/2c of soy/rice milk.


  1. Thank you for making your blog a great resource for fasting menus, as well as other things. I need fasting recipes,as my few old stand-bys get old after a while.

  2. Those pumpkin muffins can also be made with spice cake mix and no seasonings. Similarly, you can mix up the dry ingredients for any cake made from scratch and add pumpkin puree(and seasonings as desired) and it still works.

    Just some variations!

  3. Thanks for the tips! I just love Jiffy mixes.
