Meatless Friday and Irish Soda Bread

Since lent began, I noticed a lot of vegetarian meals are being posted, I am not sure if everyone is just trying to eat better or they too are doing the no meat on Friday.
 Either way, it is a win win situation for everyone. Especially me, who is always looking for flavorful Lenten recipes. 
So, I have noticed a few Lent meals that I want to try.
Not sure, but I thought you  might want to try them too.
  The Country Cook’s Cinnamon raisin biscuits would be ideal for breakfast any time of the week
My absolute favorite thing to do is have breakfast for dinner. One of my favorite is Fried Eggs on Toast over at Dricks Rambling Cafe, it is one of those yummy dishes that would be great anytime of the day.

Keeping with my Irish heritage I am posting a recipe for Irish soda bread. I think it will go very well with the Shrimp Scampi  that Patti made over at Comfy Cuisine.

I do hope you will try these recipes when you get the chance. I know I will.
