O’Connor’s American Bar & Grille

O’Connor’s Fish Sandwich

I wanted to make my final Lenten meal something special. After much discussion I decided that O’Connor’s would be the winner. I have eaten there once previously, and it was fine. A few weeks ago, at the beginning of Lent my parents went there for lunch one day and they raved about how good their crab cake sandwich was. I knew I had to go back and try their fish sandwich and I am so happy I did! It did not disappoint.

The Local

Fish and Chips

This past Friday was crazy. My family and I suffered from Spring fever because the weather was a perfect 10. So instead of ordering a late lunch, we all decided that a nice take-out dinner from the Local would do the trick. We had a craving for their fish and chips, and it was finally satisfied.

Be the DRE that gets Paid!

It is hard to believe that another school year is coming to an end in a few short months. Daylight Saving is a week away, and it will be Palm Sunday before we know it. That means it is time to start thinking about Religious Education during the 2021-22 school year. There are many unknowns as to how the school year will be ran, but we need to prepare for all scenarios. This is how Parish Giving can help, and to guarantee that you will have a successful year.

Not Just Subs

Fried Fish Po’ Boy

Not Just Subs is our local deli in town. The building was the old Lumberton Post Deli and I remember as a kid going there for their Italian subs on special occasions! Plus, their potato salad was legendary. The store sat vacant for about two decades until Not Just Subs bought it and fixed it up during the pandemic. Now we have a place in town for sandwiches again, and it is such a great feeling!

Communication

As you know, 2020 was a year unlike any other in our lifetime. One of the major things we learned was how to communicate while in our home offices. We enjoyed our conference calls and seeing everyone’s faces, but at the same time, we feel as though we could have done better. In 2021 our goal is better communication and that starts with you! We are asking for suggestions from our loyal users about how we can communicate better. As you have read in our latest blast, communication is key in any relationship, and your relationship is important to us!

Here are some of the ideas we have come up with so far:

Arby’s Fish N Cheddar

I did not intend for Arby’s to be my first fish sandwich of the year. I was hoping I’d be able to enjoy a nice, buttery Chick-fil-a fish sandwich. I walk into the restaurant and approach the cashier only to be told that they are not offering it at their location this year. Luckily Arby’s is next door and I just walked over and picked up a fish n cheddar with some curly fries (no tartar sauce). Well here goes nothing!

Lenten Meal

Am I the only one who cannot believe that it’s already the First Friday during Lent? It seems as though we were just celebrating Advent and the Christmas season. I know I wrote that I was going to write reviews of fast food fish sandwiches, but today we ordered something even better at work – Frutta bowl. Here is my honest to goodness review of my Hulk bowl from Frutta Bowl TCNJ!

Mardi Gras: The Food before Fasting

It’s the Tuesday before Lent which means it is Mardi Gras! Mardi Gras translates to Fat Tuesday. It’s the day we use up all of the fatty, sugary foods prior to the first day of Lent. For the next 40 days, we try our best to stay away from rich foods and to fast whenever possible. Different regions of the world have different ways to use up all of their fattening foods. Parish Giving wanted to share some of theirs!

What to Give Up for Lent

Lent is the time of year in the church in which we reflect and prepare for Easter. We are asked to give up something that means a lot to us for 40 days as a way to represent Jesus’s sacrifice during his journey through the desert for that amount of time. Some people give up chocolate or other delicious treats, but what about giving up things that are not as traditional? Here are some items you could be giving up during Lent rather than just meat on Friday’s.

Preparing for Lent

Waking up this morning and I could smell spring trying to emerge. The birds are out chirping, but the weatherman is still predicting another snow storm. March is on the verge of arriving, but we are still stuck in February. This does mean that Lent is around the corner and we should begin to prepare for it. The only thing is how do we prepare for Lent? Well, I have come up with a couple of ways in which we should begin to prepare for the Easter season.
