Fish Fry


It is a rainy Friday in Lent. Time for the perfect solution to the dinnertime blues! The Knights of Columbus. In Catholic churches all across the United States, this Catholic Men's organization is feeding hordes of hungry churchgoers. Check out your local parish for details and get a scrumptious meal of fish and chips usually with coleslaw, a drink and dessert for a very reasonable price. We went two weeks ago to a parish near us and arrived just in time to see an engine company from the nearby fire station pull in to the church parking lot just in time for dinner. Firemen know where to get the good and reasonable eats. Always a fun time for the kids and a reasonable cost for great food and fun company. Enjoy your evening and your fish and chips. Don't forget another option is the delicious Italian tuna melts on ciabatta bread on the Backcounter Buffet menu .
Peace,

Sounds kind of fun. Never been in a catholic church before. Do you have to be a member? We have a big new one that was just completed about six blocks from our corner. Would love to see what it looks like and if we could get a nice seafood dinner, then it would be a fun Friday. Is it only on Fridays?

My daughter complains about the dust in her house always coming back. I actually spent two days with her new husband and children and dusted at 8am and by noon I had to dust again. I think its the dust in the air at Mission Springs, CA. Her husband says to run the leaf blower every day to keep the dust stirred up so it never has a chance to settle.

Keep up the good work.

Absolutely not....You are welcome to join in the fun. I found the fish frys in our area by typing in Catholic fish fry with the city and a lot of churches came up. You can also go on the diocese web site and look up the activities.
We actually could not eat all of our food. Hope you find one.

Peace,

The Fish Fry was so much fun. Thank you for telling us about it. My kids couldn't get enough of the fish. We loved it! My husband and I have decided that we are going to go every Friday. Does the fish fry go all year round? This is a wonderful blog and I will be coming on everyday to check out the recipes. Thank you so much.

Wonderful!!! Unfortunately, the fish fry only happens on the Fridays in Lent. The Catholic church has a long tradition of fish on Fridays and now it is mainly restricted to the Fridays of Lent. So you have about two more to go this year. I have more recipes and menus for you. Please send my link to your friends as my blog is new. Thanks for your support!
Peace,
Julia
