it's Friday, it's Lent

Simple dinner tonight:

Haddock fillets broiled with fresh lemon juice, cracked pepper, kosher salt, fresh minced garlic, fresh chopped parsley and paprika until done.

Served with:

Angel hair pasta, cooked al dente, drained. In same pan, saute garlic and olive oil; add pasta and toss to coat. Season with kosher salt, cracked pepper, fresh chopped parsley. I use LOTS of garlic!


Fresh crusty Italian bread, sliced thick and toasted in the broiler. Toast one side lightly; remove from broiler, brush untoasted side with olive oil, top with minced garlic and parsley, return to broiler and toast.

Love those simple dinners, taking 2 talapia fillets, dipping in seasoned flour, egg wash and panko crumbs, frying in butter and canola oil.
Steamed asparagus with salt and a little lemon rind
cole slaw, and buttered bread, iced tea with lemon. Quick and easy dinner and the fish turns a light crispy crust.

How is everyone reconciling Friday of Lent with St. Pat’s day?

Our Bishop says because it is St. Patrick’s Day that we CAN eat meat. He says that every time. Not in our house. We can have our corned beef and cabbage the day after. We always eat fish on Fridays during Lent regardless.
