In honor of Ember Wednesday in Lent

As I explained in today’s LENTCAzT there is a connection between today’s Ember Day observance and Japanese food.

In honor of that connection … tempura!

    Very cool, Fr. Z! I was going to make shrimp w/garlic & lemon for supper tonight but I changed my mind and am printing out a tempura recipe!

    Is that a Bento Box? The tempura & sushi look so good!

  3. Supertradmum says:

    Wow, look at the size of that Bento Box! I love sushi. Fasting this week for SSPX. Sigh, can look at photos, though….

    A kawaii bento if ever…the California rolls look delish and the tempura fresh. Tempura veggies are good too… Zucchini, sweet potatoes, yams, green beans…I hope you enjoyed your lunch Fr. Z.!

    Indeed, wherever would we be during Lent if it wasn’t for the wonderful foods of the Middle and Far East? Looks fantastic!

    I listened to a great talk on fasting from here…
