We are having a smoked haddock, prawn, broccoli and sweetcorn pie. It is in the oven as I type. We had tuna mayo in pitta breads for lunch. Is there anyone else who, like me, isn't a practicing Christian but still has fish on Good Friday?

Not a practicing Christian either marthamoo, but we are having scampi and chips

We had fish yesterday. Still not sure what we are having tonight. We went to Church this morning, had a really late lunch. Maybe we'll have fish again. The kids just want chocolate fridge cake. It is so tempting to give in.

Do you know I never knew that, that fish was a good friday dinner.


We had cauliflower cheese.

The children have just had fish pie, but me and dh are having lamb shanks with couscous.

MunchedTooManyMarsLady Fri 25-Mar-05 17:33:52

Did you make the pie yourself marthamoo?

We are having a trout each but not because it's Good Friday, just because we fancied them!

not keen on fish

Tiggiwinkle Fri 25-Mar-05 17:44:26

We are like you Marthamoo-we have fish but are not religious. More for traditional reasons, like turkey at Christmas, I think.

Will be having fish and chips if can find a chippy open

we are having smoked haddock, salmon and cod all chopped up in to chunks in a fish piey kinda thing. With sweetcorn and cauliflower. It smells delish.

We had fish for lunch, fish & chips from the chippy (yum). Nothing to do with Good Friday though.

As a true catholic I was supposed to only have one meal today, pray at 3 and only eat fish. Ummmm, didn't quite manage any of that but might try and get to church Saturday night, or Sunday morning.

noddyholder Fri 25-Mar-05 19:21:55

we had haddock fillets with lemon couscous and loads of veg It was part of my menu plan so can't claim I knew it was a good friday thing!

GeorginaA Fri 25-Mar-05 19:24:52

Well ds2 had salmon & broccoli tagliatelle (ala Annabel Karmel) for dinner tonight - complete coincidence though

marthamoo Fri 25-Mar-05 19:26:03

I did make it myself and it was scrummy. Had strawberries for pudding.

Practising Catholic here.

We are having steamed trout fillets a la Delia, they have a ginger and lime and garlic stuffing and then they are wrapped in lettuce, steamed and served with jasmine rice. Yummy..........

BTW we had fish due to religious beliefs and I did go to devotions at 3 today too. We had our two collations and main meal.

biglips Fri 25-Mar-05 19:42:27

ive made a salmon lasagne and so it was ssoooo yyuummmmyyyyyy !

purpleturtle Fri 25-Mar-05 19:44:44

We gave up meat for Lent, but allowed ourselves fish, and as Lent draws to an end I'm using up stuff from the freezer that I wouldn't normally have bought. So we had salmon and brocolli crunchies (or something). Not really very nice. I'm looking forward to being able to knock up a quick spag bol on lazy days! (And even more than that, the joint of lamb that's in the fridge waiting for Sunday )
