Adventures in Lent

Even as a hilariously lapsed Catholic I still get into the Lented Friday Fast. At this point it's almost reflexive, yet it's still a quest, a mission, and a whole lot of fun in a fine culinary city like ours. Today included a magnificent Artichoke and Brie soup from The Gourmet Shop: excellently seasoned with nice chunks of brie, and a trip to the Hayes Fish in Kenmore. We got there just under the wire in time for some killer fried seafood: the always excellent shrimp dinner plus a small fried clams to warm me up. Nobody fries seafood as well as the folks at Hayes. Nobody.
