Osage Bend Fish fry

It is an annual event the first Friday of Lent, for the St. Margaret Parish of Osage Bend to hold their fish fry. Tonight was no exception. We arrived promptly at 5:00. The hall was already half full. The line wound half way through the hall. We waited in line maybe 20 minutes.

The menu included FISH, slaw, french fries. baked potatoes, hush
puppies, baked beans, bread and butter. It was all you could eat.

After our meal we went out to the fry shack. There our son and most of the men of the parish were working. Oh this is a men's club event. I forgot to tell you that.

Life in the country is good.

33 degrees and 1 to 3 inches of snow by morning is coming. Or so they say!

All you can eat? Are you kidding me? That's just too good to be true!
We wait all year for the church fish fries. We were totally stoked when the church near our office started a pre-Lent fry this year.
We have fish, latkes, and halushki made by the church ladies. I'm really jealous of the hush puppies!
