Tilapia are any of @100 species of large, edible, (mostly) freshwater fish in the cichlid family. They’re found on most continents, as I recall.
Tilapia is a kind of fish that is commonly farmed (at least, as a proportion of what one finds in the US). IIRC, it's a pretty mild-flavored fish.
And as you guessed, "Lenten" is the adjective of "Lent." During Lent, Roman Catholics (among others) don't eat meat on Fridays. Fish is not-meat, under those rules (for most denominations).
Sorry. It can be hard to know what someone else knows. I personally have a tendency to either overexplain (when people already know) or completely fail to explain (when people have no idea what I'm talking about).
I love lamb kebabs. Had ‘em quite a few times in my life, and right now, 2 places near me actually do a good job with them. I’ve probably mentioned both here before- one is a family owned & operated restaurant/grocery, and the other is a takeout place in the tiny suite next to a convenience store.
What are you using for the loaf? Beef, or a mix? (I'm partial to bison and turkey, myself, but there's not really a wrong answer.)Trying my hand at a meatloaf for the first time tonight. intended to stuff it with bacon & cheese, but burned my bacon. Using sliced ham instead.
We’ll see how this comes out...
It was more that your first choice (bacon + cheese + meatloaf) isn't wildly different from a bacon cheeseburger, which is a known classic. Ham + cheese works on a burger, but it's a little more of a fringe thing.Hey, ham works for cordon bleu, so it should work for meatloaf.
Good memory!It was more that your first choice (bacon + cheese + meatloaf) isn't wildly different from a bacon cheeseburger, which is a known classic. Ham + cheese works on a burger, but it's a little more of a fringe thing.
Yes, I'm sure your meatloaf is going to come out fine. IIRC, you're not a huge fan (I suspect you're making it for a relative who is) but that's not relevant to that.
