My Fri. host had picked the chili cornbread bake, but is celebrating lint and so are her guest. Ideas on suggestions to give her...

We don't do lint so not sure what all the requirements are.

Thanks.

Could the elusive word be "Lent?" Just wondering.

Doesn't it depend on what they are giving up for Lent? I don't know if there are any rules as to what they can or can't eat, unless the have given up something specific.

catholics aren't supposed to have any meat other than fish, so i'd just do extra beans instead of the beef, or do the veggie beef, its pretty good.

I think those who observe Lent avoid meat. But fish is okay. That's why fish is advertised a lot during Lent.

I think if you just do a meatless recipe, you'll be okay. What I ask the host when we approach the topic of the recipe is, "Is there anyone with a dietary concern (food allergy, vegetarian, celiac disease, religious, etc.) that we need to respect?" Then I work around that. You could give them a meat free recipe and one that's whatever you like to demo and ask if either of those recipes are okay.

For this situation, you said she picked the Chipotle Chili Cornbread Bake, right? She could skip the meat and just double up on the chili beans. Add more bell peppers (maybe red and green), too. There's also "Chili" made by Hormel, (or Dinty Moore, or someone). They actual offer a meat and meat-free version, so you could try using the meat free one.

Lent is no meat. Depending on how strict they are fish is allowed. You could try tofu too...

Catholics aren't the only ones who celebrate Lent, and not everyone has a no-meat rule. Ask the host what a Lent-friendly recipe means to her/him.

our friends 6 year old daughter told the congregation she was giving up beer for her dad for Lent.

Okay just to clarify. We don't give up meat entirely during Lent. We abstain from meat on Fridays and other recognized holy days such as Ash Wednesday, Holy Thursday, etc.
We also choose to abstain from another thing in life that we deem sinful OR instead of abstaining that way, we choose to change one thing in our life for the better.
This year I'm not choosing to abstain from anything. I'm choosing to spend more quality time with my son.

And Rae is correct, there are other Christians that celebrate Lent.

I thought "lint" was a cute name for a recipe, like dump cake or ants on a log.

Bummer!

Be advised that some Catholics are under the impression that the "no meat on lenten Fridays" rule means only "no red meat." My aunt insists that poultry is OK because meat comes from animals with 4 legs, not 2. :rolleyes:

But I agree with the above suggestion that you check with your host to see what she considers lent-friendly. Or do something that's generally meatless but also avoids rich or indulgent foods (for those who give up such things, like chocolate and dessert). The Creamy One Pot Pasta is actually a great such recipe, since it's meatless, but you can tell the guests that they can add chicken or shrimp when they make it at home.
