With Lent came meals of pyrohy, herring, sardines and fish (White Fish and Pike), all of which I did not eat but would enjoy a plate of french fries or scrambled eggs. Sardine sandwiches and tea were the norm after Station of the Cross on Friday Evenings.
This time of preparation for Easter was not seen as a hardship but rather as a time of refections and a feeling of satisfaction that you were able to change the pace in your normal life. This year, the church bulletin has indicated fish days for Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I decided to pick up the challenge and prepare Meatless and sometimes dairy less meals for these fish days.
It has been most interesting for me as not being a fan of Pryohy and after checking that the suppliers of fish being mainly from China even the Highlander brand, I have been researching dishes that I have come across on Instagram.
Here is a list of dishes I have prepared and blogged about! I will be added the different dishes as Lent progresses. You can still find Pryrohy, Cabbage rolls on my site.
