Since next Wednesday is Ash Wednesday – the day we start the Food Stamp Challenge – I figured that I only had a few days left before I wouldn’t be eating desserts (and a bunch of other beloved foods). In the spirit of Mardi Gras I made my favorite dessert – mousse – and portioned it out to have just enough to last me till February 22. (Jim, don’t you eat any more.) Since I usually give up desserts for Lent anyway this isn’t technically part of the Food Stamp Challenge but it will make it a little more palatable to keep to my $4.50/day allowance.
