Meal Plan - March 2023
One helpful way to live litugically is through our meals. An outward way to experience days of fasting and days of feasting. Whether it be a Friday in Lent, a Solemnity, a feast day for a meaningful saint in your life, a Baptism day, a wedding anniversary - all of these days can help us into the liturgical season and draw closer to Christ.
Here are the recipes my family will be enjoying this month. Grab a few ideas or feel free to copy and paste it all to your own meal plan. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

St. Patrick’s Feast Day - Potato Soup and Cabbage + Irish Soda Bread
Although St.Patrick’s feast day is widely known and celebrated, his feast day isn’t considered a solemnity so we still need fo abstain from meat today.
*use vegetable broth instead of chicken
