Lenten Sacrifice?

Being Catholic, I have always made the sacrifice of not eating meat on Fridays. This past Friday in order to stay with our Catholic obligation we had a nice fish dinner at home. I procured some Pink Grouper from the Fish Guy as well as some large Sea Scallops - both were pan seared in a little olive oil and butter seasoned with just salt and pepper. Joining the sea dwellers on the plate was a little French Green Lentils and a Tomato Salad - comprised on olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a little Romain and a few slices of Tomme Crayeuse (a semi-soft raw cow milk cheese). Looking back, it doesn't really seem like much of a sacrifice at all.
