Before I talk about lent, I want to recap last post. I hope you all enjoyed my riddle as much as I enjoyed writing it. I received guesses ranging from fruit rollup to seaweed to the correct answer: beef jerky! And now for the winners… drum roll please…
1st: Diane Ciesinski: Mrs. Diane Ciesinski is my dad’s work friend and is one of the top commenters on my blog. I always appreciate your support!
2nd: Uncle Frank Grove: Uncle Frank is my mom’s cousin’s husband. He and his family come over every Christmas and he always manages to win the traditional “Newlywed” game. Congrats!
3rd: Aunty Min Min Tun: Aunty Min Min is a family friend of ours. She has been reading my blog basically since it started which was a long time ago!
Thank you for participating in my riddle challenge. It’s always fun reading people’s answers. To the top three, we have ordered you each a bag of spicy teriyaki and original beef jerky from our favorite company Divine Bobine (thank you to Aunty Polly for the recommendation).
Are any of your friends not eating a certain food? Are any of your friends committing to working out everyday? This is Lent, a Christian holiday lasting approximately six weeks. Usually during this time, Christians will give up something or set a goal. It could be not watching TV in the morning or saying something kind each day. During Lent, people will often reflect, repent, and try to improve their lives in some way. In the past, I have given up something for Lent (i.e. video games), but it has never been food. This Lenten season I have decided to give up unnecessary carbs. By that I mean that I can’t eat foods like rice, bread, pasta, and potatoes. There exceptions for small bits such as croutons, but for the most part I’m staying away from carbs. I knew that this was going to be a challenge, because carbs are really an important part in a meal. Two days ago my mom ordered Thai curry, but I couldn’t eat rice with it. She made delicious corned beef this week, but I couldn’t eat the potatoes that went with it. My sister has given up added sugars, which is also quite difficult for her since she loves desserts. As for my mom, she is deciding not to eat after 8:30 pm at night. Giving up something for lent is supposed to be a hard thing, and I actually feel like it’s pretty cool that I’m trying it out with food this time.
