Over at His Hermeneuticalness’s place we find a photo of eggs and toast. “But Father! But Father!”, I thought. “I also had an egg and toast today!” Then, I continued needlessly, “Why? I’ll tell you why. Which it’s Friday, ain’t it!”
I channeled my inner Preserved Killick for a moment.
Fr. Finigan was reminding his readers that today, 16 September, is the first day in England and Wales for all Catholics to observe in a serious way their “meatless Fridays” during the whole of the year.
This is a good development and WDTPRS sends kudos to the Bishops of England and Wales.
So, I had a poached egg with whole wheat toast for breakfast. It looks as if Fr. Finigan’s eggs were lightly fried. Perhaps a grilled cheese sandwich with a bowl of tomato soup for lunch. Or maybe some breakfast cereal and yogurt. For supper? Perhaps I’ll break down and make some 炒粉 with vegetables. Or I could do that pasta sauce with tuna and hot pepper. Or I could thaw that pack of frozen sunny filets. Or I, since I have to use my basil before the freeze comes, I could make fresh pesto. Or I could fast. Or I could make mac and cheese. Or I could have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Or, if I run errands today, I could get a small piece of salmon, or mussels, or shrimp.
Lot’s of possibilities, all good.
And it is all swell with Mystic Monk Coffee!
