Like Christmas Eve, we do not eat meat on Good Friday so the menu consisted of Breaded Shrimp, Calamari, Crab Legs, Bacala [dried codfish soaked in water for several days to remove any extra saltiness, then cooked as desired]. For the kids we made two pizza's - both vegetarian and a plate of pasta with spaghetti sauce, eggs and mozzarella cheese.

We ended the evening off with a huge ice cream cake to celebrate my son's 16th birthday and then watched an episode of Who Do You Think You Are starring Brooke Shields while the men played poker. It was definitely one of the nicest dinners the family has spent together and we are going to do it all again today -but at my house. I'll let you know how it goes on the next post.
Meanwhile, have a safe and Happy Easter!
