Today starts the Dormition Fast. Unfortunately because of the blackout I missed the Paraclesis service at our church to start off the fast. Thankfully there are 2 more during this "Little Lent".
Tonight, with it being a strict fast, we are having Yves* Veggie Chilli mixed in with egg-less pasta. If anyone is looking to get or share their own fasting recipes there is a thread full of them here.
*Yves Veggie Cuisine is one of the few vegetarian fake-meat companies that does not have dairy or eggs in most of their their products, so it is great for the Church fasts. Their Good Burger™ is one of the best tasting veggie burgers around as well! Much better than that thing Burger King puts out! YUCK!
