Day 12 of my java hiatus going strong. In case you didn’t catch it on Instagram, I decided to sacrifice my daily cuppa coffee for the lenten season. I survived the first few days of harrumphing and withdrawals thanks to switching to tea, and am used to the change over at this point.

I had a lotta computer work and research to do this weekend, so I was pretty much married to the couch and Lifetime movies for the past two days.

I did get up and moving to save my bum from going numb too much. Walks around the neighborhood, podcasts, and some yoga were the perfect thing to clear my head and rejuvenate.

I also tested out my new egg contraption in true Emily style..

1 T coconut flour + 2 T PB2 + 1/2 T Ground Flax + 1/4 tsp Baking Powder + 1/4 cup Almond Milk // Mix. Pour. Microwave 1 minute. Add choco chips and extra peanut buttah of course.

While I’m not a devote Catholic, I still like to participate in lent since it gives me a reason to accomplish something that I’ve been putting off anyways.

In case your unfamiliar, lent is a time of abstinence from a personal vice, adding something to improve life or faith, for the 40 days from Ash Wednesday to Easter.

Also during lent, meat is usually not eaten on Fridays, but rather fish instead. #FishFrydays

When I used to work at a bakery, we would always go through waaaay more of our homemade salmon pies during lent instead of the popular meat pies. Both are originate from our Canadian neighbors, which is pretty much New England’s backdoor.

 

Since I’m obsessed with making salmon patties each and every week, I thought I’d put a lenten spin, eh? 😉

Typical salmon pie is made with a mix of salmon, mashed potatoes, onion, and spices. I’ve seen recipes use peas or not, but the one I’m used to did, plus I think it adds more color and texture.

I substituted the mashed for cauliflower for some added nutrients, and to make them less starchy. Plus cauliflower is darn delicious. 😉

  1. I don’t give up anything for lent. And I could never give up coffee (at least not while expecting to interact with the anyone else living). One of my friends gave up twitter for lent, but what is interesting is that her family doesn’t have much of a faith life. I think its cool that she finds something to sacrifice up, while I just keep doing what I’m doing.

  2. I not a burger lover, since I’ve been a pescetarian for the last 8 years burgers are the furthest thing from my mind. These salmon pie burgers look tasty, easy to make, and are actually good for me. Can’t wait to try out your recipe.
