It's Friday, during Lent, and silly me made lunch plans at Superior Grill. Luckily, their shrimp fajitas are as good at the beef.
In Louisiana, especially, I think Catholics and other folks that skip meat on Fridays are always struck by this paradox: Lent is supposed to be a season of fasting and repentance but skipping meat for seafood is not exactly a sacrifice. My argument it may not be a painful sacrifice, but it is a change you have to make. Hopefully, that train of thought would lead you from dinner to tradition, church and God. I've also heard priests suggest that if you are going to have a more gourmet meal then you should donate an equal amount of money to charity.
How do you handle the Friday meals?
