Weren't you raised Catholic? Waaay back then, there was no meat on Friday.

That's right. However, as I said in my earlier post (which perhaps you missed), when Dad's union was on strike, we ate a lot of salads, sometimes with a can of tuna or salmon (both of which would have been permitted on a meatless Friday). However, Mom made these "special meals" (of all potatoes) only on Fridays.
