Fish Fry Friday

On Lundi Gras this year, we had a lovely seafood gumbo at our downtown Creole outpost. Since 12th Night, the house has been filled with the music of Professor Longhair, Rebirth, Baby Dodds and every other record that we snagged while living down south, all the sounds of Carnival season...which we missed again this year. Another Mardi Gras is history, and the penitent season of Lent settles in, the time of year of soup luncheons at the Episcopal church and Fish Fry Fridays at local Catholic parishes and Knights of Columbus halls.

I saw the advertisements for fish fry Fridays last week as they popped up in German Catholic country south of Jefferson City. On March 21, Most Pure Heart of Mary in Chamois is hosting a full-on seafood buffet, but on Fridays through Lent (including Good Friday) look for your meatless Friday meal at any of the following K of C halls or local parishes in the Ozarks. Here's a list of fish fries coming up on March 14 in the central Ozarks region:

  • Argyle, K of C fish fry
  • California, K of C fish fry
  • Camdenton, K of C fish fry
  • Eldon, K of C fish fry
  • Hermitage, K of C fish fry

  • Jefferson City, K of C Helias #1054 fish fry
  • Jefferson City, K of C Cathedral Council fish fry
