Hey, she's not THAT old

Thanks, Phil, but yes, I am. Meatless Fridays were still de rigueur when I was a youngster. (We celebrated when that was no longer the case.)

My mother was raised Catholic but left the church in 1940. Still, when I was growing up in the 50's, it was always fish on Fridays.

I can top that. Apparently, back in the old days, during Lent both Fridays and Wednesdays were meatless days. But I'm not sure if that is just a tradition that my mother's family kept. However, when I was growing up, Mom did not serve meat on Wednesdays or Fridays during Lent. BTW - Mom "left the church" when her mother died - which was the same year I was born. But she still followed most of the "rules".
