The Pier House

Salmon BLT

Cape May is the dining capital of New Jersey for a reason. There are numerous restaurants to choose from, so each one has to do something special to attract new patrons. Many serve farm to table or offer fresh caught seafood. Others have large menus for those who have dietary restrictions such as gluten or dairy-free, and others have a small select menu to cater to those with a fine dining palate. The question is what keeps me coming back to the Pier House? The answer? Their Salmon BLT.

BK Brunch

Shrimp Po’ Boy

Fish sandwiches have become part of many restaurants’ seasonal menus. Many look forward to devouring their first fish sandwich of the year, even if they are not Catholic. Different restaurants and fast-food joints compete for the top fish sandwich of the year always trying to out do the previous years sandwich. To me, most fast-food sandwiches taste the same – deep fried and salty. You can not taste the fish, and the buns are usually mediocre and soggy at best. That is why I choose to try local restaurants around me instead.

Fast, Pray, Give

Many of us are familiar with the book and movie Eat, Pray, Love. The journey one woman went through (Eat in Italy, Pray in India, Love in Indonesia) to overcome a divorce. Well, what about the time of year where we follow Fast, Pray, Give? We Fast on Ash Wednesday, and Fridays until Easter, pray to be closer to God, and Give to those who have less, and it all takes place for 40 days of Lent. The Lenten season is only a few weeks away, and we want to make sure that you are ready for Fast, Pray and Give.

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!
