Fish Frys in Northwest Indiana

 

Fish Frys in Northwest Indiana are always a local favorite around lent.  Today is the first Friday in lent.  I used to work at fish frys at St. Helen’s church in Hebron, Indiana.  It was a lot of fun and hard work.

 

Potato PancakesPreparation started a month or so in advance.  There were pierogis to be made and frozen.  These were fun days with all the church ladies meeting to roll, fill, and cook the pierogis by the dozens.  Pierogis were a special item that people would purchase by the dozen. 

 

There is a lot of preparation that goes into a fish fry and when it’s all over there is the clean up.  You can’t even begin to imagine the grease!  I’m much more appreciative when attending fundraisers, benefits, local breakfasts and dinners of the time and effort of the volunteers.

 

I made potato pancakes the other night.  It made me smile and fondly remember the fish fry days and all the wonderful people I worked with and the people who came in regularly to eat.

Just one word, Christine - "Yummmmy"  Even the mention of perogies makes me think of my grandma's delectable treats...and they would get the neighbors going in an assembly line just as you noted - such fun!  Fish fry in Northwest Indiana - fun for everyone!

Karen, my dad and I used to make our own little assembly line at home.  I wish I had some pictures to share.  :)

Christine,

Oh my gosh!  I didn't even realize we were in to Lent!  Thanks for the reminder.  We ate a lot of Creamed Tuna on Toast when we were growing up during Lent!  My brothers hated it but I actually liked it!:)

Dee Dee,  Tuna noodle casserole and potato pancakes were my favorite.  I'm not a big meat eater anyways, so I loved lent!

Ann, Yes, I know people will be looking for where they are in the area :)  When I worked at the fish frys at St. Helen's the line would literally be out the door some nights!
