Home Sweet Home O Now that Lent is here, I'velboiled, planked, fried, sauteed, taken a deep breath, girded myI stuffed, marinated---or cooked in splmmal loins, ann opened the l archmen cookbook at "fish." (Later will[p L papez', zou can al~o come vegetable casseroles ma-]eat it raw, i.e pickled raw her- caroni and meatless dishes.) [ring, or Lutefisk, which is some Eating fish, for this family, is kind of finny critter soaked in real penance. As a matter of fact, one of our favorite cuss- words is "Oh fish." The men in the family, all devoted fisher- men, enjoy the sport--period. Cat Food After I fry that opening-day panful, they bring home their trophies and say: "Perhaps the cat will like these?" When her capacity, and that of our fish- liking neighb'brs is exhausted, the residue winds up under the spirea as fertilizer. Even looking at fish receipes lye. ] Boy's Recipe I p ersonally, I like the recipe a small boy once gave me. He had l just hauled a big carp from the] golf course slough, and I praised the size of his catch and said I'd read somewhere that the Chi- nose considered carp a real delicacy. He looked at me sober- ly, and he said: "I know. You scale it, gut it, stuff it, put it on a wooden plank, and bake it. Then you throw away the fish and eat the plank." is penance--for me. For "fish, However--this Lent I am not boiled," you take a fish weigh- going to grit my teeth when I ing two or more pounds, tie it open up that tunafish. I am go- ~n a cloth, and drop it into a k, et- ing to offer it as a. small prayer, le oI water m wnma you ve because I have a hunch that, p}ace vinegar, shced ont, on, used properly, the labels from cnoppect cemry, and salt. Do] all those cans of tuna may be not permit the water to boil,"lredeemable at the pearly gates. the book says, "as that robs the I hope. fish of its delicate flavor." Delicate flavor? Some other folks must also re- gard fish with distaste. Proof is in our idiom: Cros~ people are crabs, the close-mouthed are clams, the undersized are shrimps, the oversized whales, the usurious, sharks, and people in crowded quarters are sar- dines, Fish Sign I know--once upon a time men and women scratched fish out- lines in the dust with their bare toes, or with sticks, to indicate their Christianity. St. Peter was a fisherman by trade. The Lord fed the multitudes with miracu- lously multiplied "loaves and fishes." (I've always wished He'd performed that miracle with fried chicken or r o a s t beef.) Further perusal of Mrs. Ram- bauer's Joy of Cooking reveals that fish may be baked, broiled, Mrs. E. G.
