Default Special meals during Lent??

Anyone have any special dishes you make just during Lent? I don't
always want fish on Fridays, so I am open to some new ideas.

Today (Ash Wed.), someone came up to me and asked why I had dirt on my
forehead...

i thought the catholics threw that rule away.

I grew up with meatless Fridays (and we weren't even Catholic!): Mac and
cheese, tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, tuna hotdish, creamed
salmon on toast, creamed peas and carrots on mashed potatoes are some of
the things Mom fed the masses with.

Next time go to an Indian restaurant. They'll think you're a Hindu ...

No, they are desperately trying to gain control over their dwindling
flock now that they have a nazi pope stirring up trouble and their
pedophile priests are being outed.

Sheeesh Mark. I woulda known why and I'm Jewish.
Have you thought of Indian or Moroccan or other vegetarian cuisines.
Of course, you might get really tired of curry and couscous.

Hope you have an easy Lent :-)

Hey Mark, we had tuna & salmon tartar last night. It had mango, very
finely chopped onion, a mayonaise based dressing with some heat to it,
jalapeno & wasabi & ginger. It was delicious. We feel lucky to have a
fishmonger who carries sashimi grade tuna & salmon nearby.

It's amazing how people sneer at the "infallibility" of the Pope but
expect that and omniscience from him.

"Professed former nazi", and from his babble that claim is
questionable...

Unlikely. Had somebody not known it was there on purpose, they would try
and discretely inform you that you have dirt on your forehead, not ask you
*why* theres dirt there.

Assuming they aren't retarded, that is.

===============================

I know that isn't the point. But it's what Jews wish other Jews before
the 24+ hour no food/no water fast on Yom Kippur.

Jews, in general, aren't really into suffering for the soul's sake.
The real purpose of fasting on Yom Kippur is remembering the millions
who go hungry every day.

Well, then they must be. One person did say that to me. Several
pointed out that I had something on my forehead and still others
remarked that they forgot it was Ash Wed until they saw me.
