Fiesta Fish Wraps

  Lent starts today and I know a lot of you give up red meat, so today and tomorrow I am going to post some Fish recipes for you to try.  

  Last year I gave up sugar for lent and it was hard, but wonderful for me, and my Spiritual and Physical health!  Anytime I was craving sugar, I replaced it with prayer time.  I could tell when my craving hit, because daily I was praying a bit after lunch, and for sure after the kids went down and I’d have gotten a bowl of ice cream!

Eating Fish for Lent sure doesn’t have to be boring!  We take White Fish goes south of the border in these tasty Wraps!!!!  They were delicious!

  1. Mmm, this looks yummy. We need to add more fish into our diet but, I always feel like I make it the same way all the time. This would be a really good way to change it up annnnd really nice for those hot summer days when hubby is not into a hot meal and I am not into making it!:)
    I have always heard of lent but never done it. I think I am going to go and look it up and read about it now. I like that you gave up sugar and replaced it with prayer! That is so good.:) I HAD to give up coffee this year because it gave me such headaches. But, I think that this is such a good reminder to us to give up something that is really important to us to remember that the LORD gave his Son for us.
    Thanks for another yummy recipe!

  2. I will be trying these one Friday this month for sure!

    Tonya – besides giving something up for Lent (bye bye fast food) I’m also trying to add. I want to try to read a new book every week during Lent (in hopes that this will carry through for the rest of the year) and was wondering if you could make some suggestions. I know you read Christian fiction, which is a genre with which I am not super familiar (besides Redeeming Love, which I think everyone knows) so I’m hoping you can point me towards some good books to try out. I found your blog a few months ago through TK and went through and read from start to finish – I think you’re an inspiration to Christian women and I love reading your blog!

    • Thanks, Meredith! I am an old school, have to have a “real” book in my hand, kinda gal. So I literally stand in my library’s Christian Fiction section and grab 15 of them. 🙂 Here are some great authors: Karen Kingsbury, Denis Hunter, Lynn Cote, Lynn N Austin, Janet Oak, Amanda MacLean, Beverly Lewis, Lauraine Snelling, Tracie Peterson, Susan May Warren and Anne Mateer to name a few!
      That outta get you started 😉
      And thank you so much for your kind words, it means a lot to me!!!!!!!

I adore hearing from you, comment away! :)
