Gefilte fish may reign in our house this Sabbath but our Christian neighbors are eating fish too. It’s Lent. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported yesterday that fish supplies are lower than last year. That’s because “many of the fishermen and some of their boats have sailed away to war” (p. 4). Note: The Fishery Council advises leaving the fins on when you cook your fish. That way, when you pull them off before serving, you’ll also easily pull off the larger bones that anchor them. The paper offers recipes for Cod O’ Leekie, Mackerel with mushroom stuffing, Tipsy Sea Bass, and Steamed Porgies with Vegetables.
Light the Sabbath candles.
