It's day 2 of Lent and I'm already failing. I forgot to make our sacrifice crown of thorns, so that will be happening in the near future.
I made the kids gluten free yesterday, and I'm already regretting my decision. I keep screaming, "It's only 40 days! You can do it! This is suffering!" It's not so easy when your kids are refusing everything you offer unless it's the junk food you bought because it said it was gluten free. *sigh* I'm sure I'll get the hang of it, but it's a lot harder when you have to worry about what you're going to eat too. I should've just made the kids Paleo too and then they wouldn't eat ANYTHING!
Speaking of Paleo...here are some recent additions to my cooking repertoire.
-Crustless Broccoli Bacon Quiche
-Warm Kale Salad with Bacon, Dates, and Almonds
I made the quiche before at my in-laws, but I did it on my own this time. The warm kale salad wasn't bad, but I've never been a salad person. I really wanted to like it. It was just the same taste over and over again. I needed something to break it up. The gumbo is being made again this weekend, which means it was a total winner. I'm excited to have it again.
Time for some pics...

Well, have a good weekend. We are touring a new school building, celebrating Nana's birthday, and having dinner guests on Sunday. We're serving gumbo!
