As someone who has only had a cheese sandwich and a banana today, the smells are pure torture. This post would be a close second. Reply paul zummo February 25, 2009 - 7:11 pm Point of clarification: the smells are torture because it smells so goooooood. Reply Ken February 25, 2009 - 7:31 pm You’re a cruel, cruel man. But I also consider this post a message of hope! Reply Helen February 25, 2009 - 7:36 pm Fish is good, too, if you know how to prepare it. Reply Tara February 25, 2009 - 7:41 pm Oy, I’m at work–working the late shift–it’s almost 6 p.m. and I have to work till 10:30p.m. I’m starving ahhhhhh! People all around me are eating, soup, licorice, apples, oranges–they all smell delicious, so I thought I would BLOG to keep my mind off food–yeah, right! The meat looks really delicious–now I know how my dog feels, when I eat meat in front of her–sheesh! Reply Elise February 25, 2009 - 7:52 pm I’m just really glad I’m not Orthodox – six weeks of vegan is certainly penitential…. Reply Gil February 25, 2009 - 8:12 pm One of the hardest things about being a (reluctant) vegetarian is wondering what to on Fridays….. Can’t give up meat if you can’t eat it anyway. Maybe I should force myself to eat meat on Fridays as a form of penance 🙂 Actually I will try fasting instead… Reply Jordan Henderson February 25, 2009 - 10:09 pm My reaction is nausea. I’ve come down with some kind of stomach bug today. Started this afternoon and getting increasingly worse. When I prayed for strength to keep the fast today, I didn’t have this in mind. The answer to prayers can be surprising! Well, gives me an opportunity to join my suffering to Christ’s. I’m thankful for that! Prayers requested for good sleep tonight. Thanks in advance! Reply Dean February 25, 2009 - 10:42 pm If that last frame is ham, that’s cruel. ‘Specially if it is Southern Smoked Ham. I like fish on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, but would have a lobster dinner on Sunday if I could afford it. Reply Karen Williams February 25, 2009 - 10:43 pm I pray that God will have mercy on your twisted soul! Reply BillyHW February 25, 2009 - 10:56 pm It’s almost midnight. Reply Rodney February 26, 2009 - 6:04 am lol. I didn’t have the chance to enjoy this last year… but for some odd reason, maybe because it is so early here, but I can’t stop laughing. Have a great day! God Bless! Reply Father February 26, 2009 - 8:30 am First of all, here in Rome it’s already Thursday. Secondly, the steak is practically burnt! Thirdly, though I very much approve of them, the current fasting expectations are awfully easy compared to what they used to be for us or still are for some non-Christians! Reply John Gibson February 26, 2009 - 9:31 am Well, I can comment about this because I am EASTERN CATHOLIC and if you do the fast the traditional way then its 40 days without meat, dairy, oil… The Orthodox fast also says that anything with a vertebrae is out… Which leaves out fish… :::sigh::: And to think I actually embraced the Eastern Side of things… I must be crazy… John Gibson Reply ThePerpetualMalcontent February 26, 2009 - 10:32 am Here’s a way you can cheat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsW-xc38OU8 Reply Amy P. February 26, 2009 - 11:34 am As someone whose pregnancy is inducing involuntary vegetarianism, this post doesn’t bother me at all. In fact, it’s kind of making me queasy… Reply Tim J. February 26, 2009 - 1:08 pm I love fish and seafood, and in fact would like to eat them more often than I do, so replacing meat with fish doesn’t amount to much of a sacrifice for me. It works better for me to eat only vegetables, or something like that. I do love me some meat, but I happen to like fish just as much. Reply Jack P February 26, 2009 - 2:19 pm Is it…or isn’t it? http://www3.telus.net/jackp3/Fake%20Seafood.bmp Reply Mary February 26, 2009 - 6:02 pm And this post is one reason why I gave up reading blogs for Ash Wednesday 🙂 Reply Patrick Madrid February 26, 2009 - 6:03 pm Jeff, by far the most torturous image for me was the top one. If it had included some grilled onions and a nice glass of Cabernet, and had I seen it yesterday instead of today, I might have defenestrated myself to avoid the temptation. (Note: For those who don’t know the word “defenestrated,” it doesn’t mean what it sounds like.) Reply Bro. AJK February 26, 2009 - 7:54 pm Yum! Glad I looked Thurs. I must refrain from your blog tomorrow, though. Reply Mike February 26, 2009 - 8:27 pm lol. Glad I didn’t come across your blog yesterday….:-) Reply Rob February 26, 2009 - 8:47 pm “Funny how tomorrow this post will elicit no reaction.” Unless… you give up meat for the entirety of Lent–like I am. Reply Bill Hoogsteden February 27, 2009 - 8:29 am Where was the Bacon Explosion (http://www.bbqaddicts.com/blog/recipes/bacon-explosion/)??? Reply Xena February 27, 2009 - 11:41 am I think I hate you. Whose side are you on? Don’t we pray something in the Liturgy of the Hours about “the accuser of our bretheren has been cast down”?? Reply Lenten Tactics: Thwarting the Meat Demon March 4, 2014 - 1:43 pm […] scenes six days a week so that come Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays, all you can think about is meat, meat, meat. You are not helpless in this fight. In addition to the grace of God, you also posess the ability […] Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
