Uh oh

Well, we're a few weeks into the no baking for Lent dealio...and I may be beginning to crack. You see, one day a lovely little bird tweeted about a site that aggregates some of the best food porn out there. And I've been hooked on it since. Luckily, I've been saving some of my favourites to delicious (odd coincidence, eh?) to bake apres Lent. But then I came to a shocking realization this week! St. Patrick's Day is on Tuesday. What do I make every year for St. Patrick's Day? That's right - soda bread. Oh. Crap. So what's a mouse to do? I want me some bread to go with my stew! Should I just appear at my parents house on Tuesday and hope they're having the same thing? Am I allowed to bake bread just this once if I give *most* of it away (I'm looking at YOU, jainey)? What would you do?

I'd crack and have the bread on St-Patrick's day only :)

Then again, you can go to your parents and have it there "without breaking your 'no baking' rule" since you didn't actually bake :)

For lent, I'm not eating meat... and for some reason I've been craving hamburgers and bacon... go figure :)

Hmmm...If memory serves me correct you are allowed to take Sunday's "off"..maybe its just wishful thinking on my part.

If so, then you can bake on Sundays :)

Don't take my word for it as I've been peanut butter free since Ash Wednesday and may be suffering delusional thoughts at this point!

I would bake the bread. But I'm not catholic. So my answer doesn't really count :)

That tastespotting site is AWESOME. I am addicted.

Bake the bread ... it's part of tradition and it's not like it's really a BAD baked good ... it's yummy bread for stew!!

As for the tastespotting site ... you are EVIL for posting the link :P

You all make very good points.

AND I'm happy to see Criztawl :)

I'm not Catholic but isn't the point of Lent to sacrifice?

I would bake it on Sunday then flash freeze it and defrost warmly for Tuesday.

Tastespotting has transformed my life, or at least my Google Reader. I drool and star and dream up all these ideas of dishes to make.

In San Francisco, if St. Patrick's day falls on a Friday the archbishop always makes a special dispensation that you can eat corned beef for that one Friday. I should think baking soda bread falls under the same rule :)

Amy said...

I have to agree with the others... especially since soda bread isn't really what I would consider baking.

Although you would use that verb to describe the action.

But thats not how I would describe a loaf of bread.

Ok. I make no sense.

Make the bread. Eat the bread. And say an extra Our Father that night! ;)
