Fish Frys in Northwest Indiana are always a local favorite around lent.Today is the first Friday in lent.I used to work at fish frys at St. Helen’s church in Hebron, Indiana.It was a lot of fun and hard work.
Preparation started a month or so in advance.There were pierogis to be made and frozen.These were fun days with all the church ladies meeting to roll, fill, and cook the pierogis by the dozens.Pierogis were a special item that people would purchase by the dozen.
There is a lot of preparation that goes into a fish fry and when it’s all over there is the clean up.You can’t even begin to imagine the grease!I’m much more appreciative when attending fundraisers, benefits, local breakfasts and dinners of the time and effort of the volunteers.
I made potato pancakes the other night.It made me smile and fondly remember the fish fry days and all the wonderful people I worked with and the people who came in regularly to eat.
