Many came to indulge in their favorite foods before giving them up for Lent.
Today is the first day of Lent. For many Christians, Tuesday night is usually spent eating before starting the six week fast.

The hot, humid days of July are finally here. The grilling is fun, but let's face it, the novelty wears off after several cookouts. The kids are busy with their summer schedules; maybe it's camp, maybe it is summer baseball, but the fact is, dinner is still a necessity. Frugal Family knows that dinner tends to be later in the summer months. Who wants to turn the oven on in this weather? And using the crock pot everyday is not realistic. Thankfully, Dedham is full of fantastic dining establishments. As always, check with merchant for specifics, and share deals that you hear about!
