There are MANY things to eat on Fridays in Lent instead of fish…which several of my kids don’t like.
~ Broccoli and/or cauliflower cheddar soup
~ Bean burgers and/or veggie burgers (can be found in the freezer section)
~ Marinated portobello mushroom caps, broiled & served on bun
~ Use “fake meat” (Morningstar Farms) in chili, sloppy joes, etc.
~ Fake meatloaf (several good ones include oatmeal, walnuts, etc. & can be found on Recipe 'zaar site)
~ My favorite: Pasta e fagioli (Italian macaroni & bean soup)
~ Egg salad sandwiches
~ Egg frittatas
~ Vegetable quiche
~ Homemade mac & cheese
~ Cheese pizza with or without veggies (homemade or takeout)
Nobody has to eat fish. In fact, at the price of some fancy fish & seafood, I sometimes wonder what the penance is?!! My dh’s cousin used to regularly go to Red Lobster on Fridays in Lent–to eat crab legs and/or lobster. I personally think staying home & eating a balogna sandwich would be more of a penance!!! :shrug:
