While I didn’t fast during the Holy Week unlike our other Christian brothers, I made an effort to refrain from drinking alcohol and eating meat. And so did the hubby. Keeping ourselves away from alcohol was easy because we’re not really into drinking, in the first place. Keeping away from meat was another thing because we are self-confessed carnivores. It was a good thing we fully understood the significance of the atonement of Jesus. Thus, we had meatless meals on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.

I’m proud to say that I was able to whip up some easy but delicious dishes last Holy Week. Like the hard-boiled egg in tomato sauce in the first photo and the pesto spaghetti with tuna flakes and oyster mushrooms in the second. (The oyster mushrooms were bought fresh from Tagaytay.) Both were a hit with the hubby and his family. Haha.
Speaking of meatless meals, I think it would be best to do it once a week. I remember I used to have a meatless Monday before but eventually forgot about it. Health wise, it’s a good practice to have a meatless day, don’t you think?
How about you, did you cook up a storm last Holy Week? I wanna hear all about it! 🙂
