Lenten Friday Fish Fries!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Realty Executives NOLA - Kim Higgins, Broker/Owner - Greater New Orleans & Northshore Area Real Estate

 

Carnival Season in New Orleans officially ended at midnight last night on Bourbon Street with the traditional ceremonial clearing led by NOPD superintendent Ronal Serpas and Mayor Mitch Landrieu.

While out of towners and locals enjoyed the festivities of Carnival Season we have now entered the Lenten Season. A season of penance, reflection and fasting that many traditionally observe by not eating meat on Fridays. However, in Louisiana this observance means enjoying local seafood on Fridays. Be sure to check your local churches as many offer Lenten Friday Fish Fries! The Knights of Columbus will be offering an $8 plate of fried or baked fish, two sides, bread and drink at Our Lady of the Lake in Mandeville.

While it’s true that fish can be be found at most local restaurants and eateries, the community fish fries provide a means for parishes and not-for-profit groups to raise funds for charities and various programs. Be sure to give to your local community this Lenten Season and enjoy one of our area's best resources by participating in the Lenten Friday Fish Fries!

This is truly a great opportunity for catholics and non-catholics alike to enjoy a tasty meal with old friends or a tasty meal with new ones.  Down here in Florida we have plenty of parishes offering fish fries and I'll be sure to visit mine soon!

I would think anywhere on the coasts would be fantastic this time of year.  Me? Cheese pizza with mushrooms and peppers for supper.   Would rather of had fish but was outvoted by a 17 year old batting her eyes....

Kim:  One of my fun memories from my own childhood is my Mom and Dad packing up all of us and heading out to a Friday night fish fry during lent.  The fist fry was great... but even more so... doing it as a family was even better.  Oh... how sad that we have lost touch with family-stuff like this.  So sad!
