Good Friday Dinner: Spinach with Potatoes, Fish and Scrambled Egg

Spinach with Potatoes, Fish and Scrambled Egg
This is a favorite dish in our family, Spinach with Potatoes and Scrambled Egg. This time, we simply added fried fish with rosmary.

In the Philippines, we religiously follow the Good Friday tradition of fasting and abstinence. In Germany, this tradition is also being followed, but not as strict as in the Philippines. But this year, our family have decided to embrace fasting and abstinence, most especially this day, encouraged by the girls who learned about it during IC's weekly lessons in preparation for her first communion.

The girls  got curious, asked some questions, and after receiving satisfactory answers, decided they wanted to follow it strictly.

What pushed them to follow it strictly is because they know that a no meat diet is always healthy and the girls are happy to create another tradition, another ritual.

And yes, as a family, we are bringing it a step further. We have declared a vegetarian day once a week. Despite being meat lovers, our family will be keeping meat out of our menu once a week. I am sure it would be worth it.

I am sure it would be fun looking for recipes that would be appreciated by the whole family. I am sure it would be fun incorporating this veggie day in our garden planning for this year. I can't wait!
