Fish Be With You!
Today is another Friday of the Lenten season. For Catholics around the world, it's a day to abstain from eating meat. When I was growing up, it was a strict diet at home during a lenten Friday; no meat, no pork, no chicken, and not even sausages. It was either fried fish, sardines, eggs, or fried rice with fresh mangoes. I actually liked the pair of fried rice with fresh mangoes. The taste of salty, oily fried rice mixing with the sweetness and pulpy ripe mangoes was enjoyable. I miss it!
So, if you're a devout Catholic adhering to the practice of abstinence today, fish be with you!
