Heh.

Bean burritos are fine, but after a while your mouth gets sore from the Diet Coke and Mentos cocktail necessary as a solvent to scrape the crud from the roof of your mouth.

I'm a Subway Veggie sub afficianado. Just use tomatoes as meat. You may recall a tomato shortage a year or two ago. Twice I had "sandwich artists" have to call the manager to get enough tomato. Hi-jinx ensued. I guess my camouflage baseball hat, beard, worn blue jeans, boots and flannel shirt don't really scream "vegan" to most observers. They had to have wondered what kind of scam I was pulling.

just replace the meat and cheese sections with vegetables and rice and you have my basic lenten meal plan.

Taco Hell remains my fast food of choice since you can order any menu item with beans instead of meat and it is cheaper than BK's veggie burger. If I weren't so lazy I'd get up earlier and instead of blogging I'd make myself a peanut butter sandwich and brown bag my lunches during lenten seasons. I'd also avoid *ahem* certain "lenten gastric issues" working in people's homes after lunch.

I always get the "fresco" bean burritos and make sure they add onions and red sauce, that makes them delish. I tend to eat alot of barbecue sauce with bread too.

Well, s-p, we are all called to bear our crosses for the Lord's sake. Some are more.... er, sorrowful than others. ;)

Two words--

Shrimp burrito.

That is all....



Also, consider cantaloupes. They are like nature's instant meal, they even come in their own bowl (if you cut it in half).

a tip:

Purchase some rose water from a Middle Eastern grocery. Swallow a little bit-- about a teaspoon-- and it will work better than commercial gas relievers.

kudos for the Napoleon Dynamite reference!

I'm sorry as a chili liturgist I would object to the inclusion of beans in chili. There is no such thing as chili that contains beans (they are an innovation) and so-called vegetarian chili is can go fly a filioque.

But yes, shrimp covers a multitude of sins.

Tim, but taking up the "cross" is voluntary and I doubt that my clients would volunteer for that podvig. (Thanks for the tip GW, and I wondered if anyone would get the Napolean Dynamite quote. :)

NH, I actually thought of that when I made the diagram but I couldn't come up with anything else for the graph, so I went with heresy. :)

You are quite right here; I have been corrected. All I can say is-
"Blessed are those that mourn, for they shall be comforted." ;)

I've always found it a little unfair that the foods many consider delicacies and are allowed during lent are the things I am allergic to. All you folks who eat lobster and shrimp really annoy me.

(Note to self: remember to confess this)

Of course, I thank God that at least I can eat peanut butter......

Anon, in our financial state the last couple years, shrimp and lobster etc. are usually out of reach. I've always had a basic problem with "luxury foods" being "fastworthy" even though I love shellfish (and I know there are "patristic reasons" for not eating animal meat). Personally, if I'm going to eat "seafood" I eat cheap fishsticks and use the leftover money I would have spent on shrimp or crab as alms. But that's just me. YMMV.
