Fry-day

It’s Lent, and in St. Louis that means you can find a fish fry on nearly every corner. Break out the vat of grease and bring on the deep-fried fish, fries and hush puppies. What a way to start your weekend!

This becomes the meal of choice for so many families this time of year. One of my co-workers has admitted to eating this meal at least once a week during Lent.

Just because you are avoiding meat, doesn’t mean you have to turn to a fried food bonanza.

Grab a bowl of vegetarian chili, indulge in a fillet of fish, but bake, broil or grill it. Make some hearty vegetarian lasagna; enjoy half this weekend and freeze the rest for next week.

Skip fry-day this week.
