Smoked Fish, Salted Duck Eggs, and Garlic Rice for Breakfast :-)
March 2, 2017 4:36pm CST
On Fridays during Lent, many Catholic Filipinos abstain from red meat. And today happens to be a Friday. For breakfast I prepared smoked fish, salted duck eggs with tomatoes, and garlic fried rice. My kids are bringing to school rice and tuna as their packed lunch. Now I'm planning today's menu for lunch and dinner. Fish and veggies for sure. What's in your household menu for today?

We're Catholics too, but we follow the old traditional rule of not eating meat on all the Fridays of the year, not just Lent. But I'm glad to see there are other practicing Catholics here who keep Lent as a time of penance. BTW, I learned something new. I always figured that Philippines was a day behind us, but really you're a day ahead! It is still Thursday here.

I admire you for keeping up with that practice. Some Catholics here do the same, I believe. This is why local restaurants still serve the humble mung bean soup and fried fish on Fridays. Yes, Philippines is a day ahead. :o) It's 7:22 a.m. here as I write this.
