Meat Friday

Today is Easter Friday. It’s a so-called Meat Friday because the Catholic tradition of abstaining from meat on Fridays is set aside on solemnities, and the entire first octave of Easter is a solemnity. So what does my wife plan for dinner tonight? We’re meeting her sister for all-you-can-eat fish fry. Where was that two weeks ago during Lent? Tonight I need an all-you-can-eat steak fry.
