Worried about what to get your good Anglo-Catholic children for dinner on Fridays during Lent? Afraid they might get bored with fish week in week out? Well, fret no longer. The Roman Catholic scholar and blogger, FATHER Z has searched through a load of hefty, latin tomes and has decreed that it is perfectly okay to eat crocodile and/or alligator on days of abstinence. It's also fine to eat insects and bugs as a main course.
He gets more technical. A lot of you will have been lying awake at night worrying about those hidden bits of animal they put into all sorts of things that should be okay to eat on a Friday. For example there is jelly (jello) which may well contain horses' hooves. Fr. Z helpfully points out that these are incidentals and therefore do not count as meat in themselves. So you can eat jelly (jello) to your hearts content on any day without any fear of ending up burning up in the furnaces of hell for eternity.
|Give your children something different and tasty this Lent.
However, we suggest you skin tarantulas before serving them
unless you want everyone to end up with a hairy toungue.
