Lenten Project II: Time To Break The Rules

As any follower of this blog has no doubt determined by now, I ALWAYS publish something on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Sure, I throw in a little something extra from time to time, but those three days are IRON CLAD! You can count on me ... well, until now. Since the Lenten Project II is starting this Friday (more information to come on Wednesday), I just won't have time to post five times a week like I did during last year's fish fry odyssey. In order to balance out the posting schedule, I've decided to post my write-ups on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday (for my first fish fry of the evening from Friday) and potentially Sunday (if I had a second fish fry to attend) during the weeks in Lent.

The good news is that this madness is truly temporary and will only last a little longer than a month or so until the end of the fish fry season. The list of local Akron organizations that are doing fish fries won't be published in the Akron Beacon Journal until Wednesday morning, so I won't be able to announce my list of destination dinners until a little later than normal. However, I want to make sure I give all of my readers ample opportunity to join me for a Lenten dinner if they so choose. Sadly, no one joined me last year, but I'm hoping some of you might want to come out on a Friday night to join me for a bit of good food (hopefully) and fellowship (definitely). No reservations are required and I'll publish where and when I'll be over the next five weeks. You can also check the community calendar to see what my eating schedule will be.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me and I'll be happy to respond to any concerns. I always hope that the organizations that put on these meals realize that this is a special time of year and go out of their way to do something unique. From last year's results, I realized that too many places were relying on Mrs. T's frozen pierogi and food service frozen fish that you can get any time of the year. Let's hope this year is different!

I look forward to dining with some of my gentle readers over the next couple of weeks. And for those celebrating the Christian holiday of Lent, I wish you the very best.

I'm in for a good fish fry.

@DineInDiva: Happy to have you on board. Hopefully we can find a good one.

I don't eat fish, but I'd love to hit up some of those Pierogi makers!

@Birdie: Almost every fish fry I've attended allowed you to order the items individually or combine them in some fashion to make a combo plate. If you wanted to just do pierogi, I'm sure they'd be happy to accommodate you.

Please join in the fun.
