HOUSTON, Texas -- Regional retailer Fiesta Mart, Inc. here is offering its shoppers 24 pages of recipes celebrating the foods of Lent, in a bilingual 2006 Lent Book. This is the fourth year Fiesta Mart has produced the free recipe book.
Produced in both English and Spanish, the book includes everything from appetizers to main dishes to desserts, as well as meatless recipes.
The book will be placed in Fiesta Mart stores on Ash Wednesday. Customers can also get the book online at www.fiestamart.com.
Consumer response to Fiesta Mart's past Lent Books has been overwhelming, according to the company. School systems have requested additional books to use as a teaching instrument for their students.
Lent, a tradition beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending before the Mass of the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday, spans a symbolic period of 40 days, and requires specific dietary restrictions.
Fiesta Mart operates more than 50 stores throughout Texas.
