Give grilled cheese the gourmet treatment to add interest to the last weeks of Lenten meals.
Since Ash Wednesday, the arrival of Lent, meatless Fridays are back. For the past few weeks, countless plates of fish and meatless spaghetti have been served. While I look forward to Lenten fish fries I must admit after a few weeks my enthusiasm has waned. Looking for an alternative to fish I've rediscovered an old childhood favorite, grilled cheese. Crisp, brown and oozing with a variety of cheeses, today’s grilled cheese sandwich is far from the sandwich served with tomato soup in the school cafeteria.

If your Catholic church or other group is operating one this year, please fill out this form with the details. We'll compile the list of frys that we get and make sure that information is available to our readers throughout the season. An Associated Press article published in USA Today called fish frys "a timeworn Catholic tradition that provides a safe haven from divides that have long roiled the U.S. church, a place where traditionalist Catholics, progressive Catholics and everyone in between can sit peacefully at the same plastic tablecloth." If you're looking at this on a mobile device, please come back and visit when you're at a …
