Today is Fat Tuesday! Eat all the red beans, rice, and sausage that you can because tomorrow starts the beginning of Lent. But, Lent doesn't mean delicious food won't be on the menu. Instead we turn our attention to fish fries! Below is the list of fish fries offered at local Catholic parishes around Southern Indiana.
