Menu Plan Monday - Feb. 21-27

Next week our church is hosting our annual Missions Conference. Each year we have missionaries from all over the world come and present the work that God has called them to do on the mission field. One of the highlights of the week is the International Dinner on Friday night. Everyone brings an international dish to share and a great time is had by all.

So this week, I'm going to try out some international recipes on my family and see how they go. I always try a test run before taking a new dish, especially one with which I'm not familiar, to a church fellowship. My guinea, family then give them their approval (or not) and I know if it's an acceptable offering to take.

Here's the plan for the week:

Herbed chicken, rice

Frybread tacos, corn

Mujadarrah (Lentils and rice with fried onions)
Syrian green beans

Black bean soup

Chicken taquitos

Spaghetti with Very Veggie Pasta Sauce, cheesy garlic breadsticks

Bonfire and weinie roast with friends (I'm bringing hot dog sauce and a dessert)

  1. Hey Marsha!!!
    I want to know how the family liked the Mujadara?!

    Your blog is great, by the way! =)

  2. I loved it! The kids, not so much. Charles thought it was okay. I followed the recipe but it was kind of bland. Next time I'll take the advice of some of the reviewers on AllRecipes and spice it up a bit!

    Thanks for following the blog!
