Is There a Priest in the House?

We need a Lenten ruling…

As some of you know, RUABelle and I gave up meat for Lent, but we’ve allowed ourselves the protein out of seafood, especially while we’re here in New Orleans.

But what about alligator? Meat or seafood? It lives in the water, but tastes like chicken. I imagine whatever ruling would extend to frog legs.

Opinions? Somebody contact the Vatican for us.

    An alligator is not seafood. It is a reptile. It’s meat. But tweak the rules as you see fit…God knows the church does. DOH!

    Dibs on the drumsticks!

    Gator is meat, sad to say. It doesn’t live in the sea, it lives in the swamp.

    Vatican rules don’t apply in the Quarter. When in NOLA, do as the Nolians. They don’t call it the Big Easy for nothing. Eat the gator and whatever else smells good!

    Really, Cee, Jesus loves you just the same if you eat meat or don’t. He died on the cross for you and didn’t expect anything in return. Eat the ‘gator and enjoy it. He would want you to. Oh and get some Boudin while you’re there and enjoy that for your Sista.

  6. Gator is definitely a vegetable

    I wondered how you were going to rationalize this kind of thing… 🙂

    Incidentally, Johnny’s will make a mean-ass muffaletta without the meat on it. Yum.
