Extra Value Friday: Easter Feast Edition on ABC's “The Chew”

For Christians, Lent is a time of fasting and contemplation. Many Christians fast on Fridays and eat only fish, eliminating meat from their diets on this day. The three days before Easter are also days of fasting and prayer. Easter Sunday is celebrated on Sunday, March 31, 2013. By that day, everyone will be ready to feast and have fun. ABC's “The Chew” is helping fans prepare for the big day.
