Menu Memories of Days Gone Past

When I was growing up we had certain meal themes on certain days – I am not really sure how they started but they were tried and true.

Sunday’s main meal was after morning services – a hot meal with meat and side dishes.  Supper was sandwiches made from left over meat – either hot and open-faced with gravy or cold with potato chips.

Wednesday was meat-less meal: pasta with heavy sauce of tomato and fresh (when available) vegetables.  This I believe came from World War Two times when meat was rationed.  Wednesday being meat-less allowed the portions to stretch.  Friday was fish or seafood – even in school at lunch – Friday was always fish.  This tradition I know came from the Catholic church and was respected throughout popular society.

Old timey Wednesday and Friday recipes to come shortly.
