In Barb Szyszkiewicz's house, Good Friday means soup and grilled cheese. What's your family's traditional Good Friday meal?
Every Good Friday, our dinner is the same. When my husband was growing up, his mom always served grilled cheese sandwiches and either tomato soup or New England clam chowder on Good Friday (and Ash Wednesday), and we've carried on that tradition in our family.
It's not my favorite dinner, but everyone else in the house looks forward to it. So after the Good Friday service this afternoon, I'll get the double griddle and start the sandwich assembly line.
Looking for some fun variations on the soup-and-sandwich theme? Try these!
