I gave up chips for Lent. I am very partial to chips (crisps for my one UK reader). When I was young, I loved chip sandwiches – fat slices of white bread, butter and chips. My favorites are the ones that have folded over themselves so they are double thickness. I fish those out first and Cedric always puts them aside for me. It’s the salty crunchiness I love. And, I gave them up for Lent … go figure. It was also a health decision – I can eat a whole bag before dinner and that’s not good. I’ve been looking forward to my first chip on Easter Sunday and then I thought – why not give them up until The Silent Spring is over – if I can bear it. I’m not promising, but that would be very meaningful.
Oh, I also gave up sugar – no cakes, chocolate or ice cream. But I’m not that crazy. I WILL be eating the Italian Panettone I have put aside on Easter Sunday!
