Today is the 5th Friday of Lent. Normally, during this time of the year Catholics world-wide refrain from eating meat on Fridays. This year, for some Catholics in the United States, things are different.
This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday. In our house, we observe the “No Meat On Fridays” rule for Catholics. I know it’s old-fashion and most Catholics today don’t abide by the “old rules” – it’s just our thing.
While strolling through the ales of my local World Market one day, I spotted several interesting pastas of the dried variety. One in particular that really got me excited was the Squid Ink Spaghetti. Wow! I’ve always wanted to try squid ink pasta. Here was my chance.
