I found myself the other day contemplating what I would eat on Easter day, and already looking forward to it. I am in the type of mood where the thinnest consomme or a slice of fat goose liver -let's not mention the French word- with a glass of sauterne, will obsess my prayers for the next 6 weeks.
I am impressed by the lentil eaters heroism, manly I call it. I normally give up meat, I am just so pleased I am not Byzantine Rite, I do so admire their ever tightening thumbscrew Lenten regime but going without dairy products or fish is just much too much!
Pray for one another during Lenten, lest we are tempted by a passing ortolan!
