As a working man, Kiddo looks forward to Fridays. It’s the end of the workweek. Two glorious days off. All he need do is get beyond our Friday Night Catholic Supper.
Now some Fridays he has no complaints. Cheese Pizza Night is alright in his book. He even likes Tuna Salad Night, so it’s not all things that swim he objects to. Kiddo is even a fan of Squid aka Calamari. But a Seafood Medley would be Catholic Friday overload. On nights such as this, he’ll make his own grilled cheese.
Hubby on the other hand is in dining heaven. Hubby has yet to meet a creature from the sea he doesn’t like. And this beautiful Medley has it all – shrimp, fish and scallops. Oh yeah, welcome to Friday!
