Just in case I get really brave and decide to give up sugar starting tomorrow, I baked chocolate wafers tonight. They call it “Fat Tuesday” for a reason. Liquor and coffee aren’t a part of my life, so Lent presents a challenge. I can’t give up the usual suspects. My oddest Lent was the year I gave up my car radio and disparaging Tom Coughlin’s coaching. (It helped that Lent falls in the off-season.)
What do you give up or have you given up for Lent? Do you give yourselves “feast days” in Lent to break your fast, or do you go straight through to Easter?
