Lenten Menu 2020

Here's a Lenten Menu for this year.

I've planned 35 dinner menus, and asked the family to make a note on the calendar for any meal they want to see again this Lent, in order to fill those last few days.

We've also created a backup plan. If a meal is served that is not a favorite of any family member, they may choose from another meal's leftovers, or one of their own list of easy, healthy favorites. (No sugary breakfast cereal or popcorn for dinner replacement option!)

After each meal, leftovers get packaged either for the next day's lunch, or put in the freezer for an easy backup meal another night.

With these menus, I usually serve some or all of the following:
Fresh Homemade Bread (usually one of these quick, easy recipes):
Easy Yeast Bread in the Slow Cooker
Homemade Yeast Bread

Pita Bread, Stove Top
Easy, No Knead, Greek Olive Crescents (Eliopites) \ 
Stir & Pour Garlic Bread Sticks 

Crescent Rolls, Easy, No Knead, Vegan
Dinner Rolls, Vegan, Soft & Fluffy, No Knead, Refrigerator  

Hummus & Veggies
Hummus with Capers
Hummus, Roasted Red Pepper, Copycat Sabra 
Hummus, Smoky  
Green Salad

Breakfasts might include the following:
Cold Cereal
Pancakes from my own mix

Lunches are usually leftovers from a previous night or one of the following:
Instant Noodles
Vegan Mac n' Cheese from a Homemade Mix
Hummus, Bread & Dip
