    MaMere, We gave up ground burger a few weeks ago, not for lent but because of the cost. Boneless chicken thighs and breasts were on sale for $1.99 per # and ground round was over $4.00! icon_eek.gif I found that you can't tell the difference between the two if I use it for spaghetti sauce, chili, sloppy joes...my red meat eating man isn't even complaining! Our new meat grinder has paid for itself in one week. We'll still indulge in a good grilled rib-eye occasionally. icon_wink.gif
    In my opinion, the sky rocketing price of beef might force us all to eat healthier. icon_smile.gif

    MaMere, girlfriend, you are very disciplined if you can give up sugar AND red meat. I can do one or the other fairly easy, but both! icon_eek.gif When I was a kid, we use to have teen dances on the weekends. We were not allowed to go to the dances during lent. So many kids that I grew up with had the same restriction, so the town no longer book bands during Lenten season.

    I totally understand D~the cost of foods/groceries is skyrocketing at a scary pace. This Spring I AM planting a garden with some veggies (as well as working my Bro's garden to help) and will also plant a raised Herb Garden, ANYTHING to help with the grocery bill (now if we could just figure out how to lower our gasoline bill averages 180-200 per wk, just for Hubby to drive!)

    Since hubby and I are Catholic, we don't eat meat on Ash Wednesday, nor do we eat meat on Friday's during Lent.
