Spinach Stuffed Shells are the answer to all your Lenten
It’s beyond crazy that in just a week we’ll be celebrating Fat Tuesday, eating our weight in Paczki, and then quickly transitioning over into the season of Lent.
Now, I’m what you would call a lapsed Catholic. I often refer to myself as retired. But! A lot of the traditions from my upbringing have stuck around these parts, even if many others have fallen by the wayside. I still recite Hail Marys when I’m stressed, keep a bible and a rosary in my car, and aim to limit my meat intake on Fridays during Lent.
This Shaved Brussels Sprouts Caesar Salad recipe is a slight twist on a classic dish. Homemade Caesar Dressing is made much easier with the help of a secret ingredient – mayo! Enjoy this healthy recipe topped with grilled chicken or shrimp for a truly delicious meal!
Starting the New Year off with a salad…could I be any more
of a cliché?
For instance – I could wax poetic about how important it is
to go into the New Year eating food to fuel your body. Good food. Real food.
Whole food. I could talk about how kale is loaded with vitamins and minerals
and how cutting out the croutons means less carbs and blah blah blah.
For the Packers, at least. For me it was great! I slept in (until 7 – hoohah!), helped Seth work on the house, and took a very long bubble bath.
Before the bath and the painting and the drinking rosé cider while painting, I went to the grocery store. I love this store – it’s on the edge of town, family owned, and truly, one of the best shopping experiences I’ve ever had. I love it so much that even when it’s game day Sunday and the entrance is a sea of green and gold, there are no available carts, and the bakery runs out of wheat bread to make subs with, I still go. I brave the crowds and stand in line and buy my favorite kettle chips (which were on sale, score).
