    I love Pad Thai Shrimp or maybe it is shrimp Pad Thai.  Either way, I have never attempted to make it.  I order out from a Chinese restaurant.  I should look into it.  You have a wok?
    They make Thai food at your Chinese restaurants?
    In my area most Chinese restaurants are operated by Vietnamese. 
    We have a place that does Thai and Japanese. Mostly sushi, but some other dishes too. Also carry beer from both countries. One of our favorite gems. It is a Thai place that does sushi.

    Oh, and I forgot, during the middle ages, monk's who were fasting and abstaining would limit themselves to fish, which wasn't flesh, and only drinking "bread beer," similar to what is known these days as double bock or old ale. So add in a couple of brews to the Fryday meal.

    Isn’t it just “no meat”? If finding fish dishes is a pain, why not go with fresh pasta with marinara or puttanesca?  Frittata packed with veggies?  This is a tasty and different chili, although I up the adobo included: https://food52.com/recipes/20498-smoky-black-bean-and-sweet-potato-chili

    Wild salmon on an alderwood or cedar plank, dusted liberally with GE rub recipe from the little booklet included 5 years ago with my medium egg.  Best rub ever.  Also, is there a way I can contact you about ordering a gasket?

    I realize this is late (lent starting on Valentines day - ouch to those practicing) but shrimp roll (shrimp instead of lobster for a lobster roll) and then perhaps a Sinaporean chili cracked crab.  Or halibut in buerre blanc.

    All great suggestions above. As mentioned above by @Theophan, it’s more about self denial and reflection, not necessarily over indulging. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are the days of fasting as well as abstinence. I can tell y’all what I don’t eat during lent - tuna casserole. In fact, I’ve pretty much given that up for ever. As a cradle Catholic, I’ve had more than my fill! My joke around my wife is that I give up tuna casserole for lent.
