Lent in Pictures

Why lemons? Because, Hummus.

Lunches for the kiddos: steamed-from-frozen broccoli, mini carrots, hummus, and left over rice "stir-fried" with some canola oil and Montreal Chicken Seasoning. So thankful to my Ukrainian friend, Sasha, for introducing that spice to me. She puts it on rice, potatoes, and noodles for her kids.

How many pounds? Yes, 4 pounds of Peanut Butter. I know that almond butter would be more healthy, but our budget is more of a peanut butter budget right now. It is comforting to know that there is at least one thing in the pantry that does not need cooking and can give my kids some protein. Besides, "go get a peanut butter spoon" (literally, a spoon dipped in peanut butter), how else do I use it?

  • Spread before topping with cinnamon sugar for cinnamon toast.
  • Mix it into oatmeal.
  • Put on celery or apple slices.
  • Grilled PBJ (like grilled cheese)
  • Our very favorite use: chickpea blondies for breakfast or coffee hour. Katie has some great fast-friendly breakfast and dessert ideas on that website!

Would you like to share what images you see around the house that are unique to our Lenten Spring?
