Can. 1250 All Fridays through the year and the time of Lent are penitential days and times throughout the universal Church.
Can. 1251 Abstinence from eating meat or another food according to the prescriptions of the conference of bishops is to be observed on Fridays throughout the year unless they are solemnities.The USCCB has allowed for some other form of penance to be substituted on the Fridays outside of Lent, but "give first place to the abstinence from flesh meat."
So here's one of our favorite meatless recipes:
Anne's Tuna Salad Sandwiches
2 5-oz. cans of tuna
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon mustard
2 Tablespoons Tiger Sauce
Flake tuna, and stir in other ingredients. Serve on bread for sandwiches.
This serves two adults for dinner.
