Happy Friday, friends! This last weekend of January will be quiet and cozy here. I do have a special meal planned for Sunday. Last spring I purchased THIS BOOK, Cooking with the Saints. It is a beautiful book filled with monthly recipes that correspond with different saints. Each month has a special meal celebrating a specific saint. January's saint is Saint Anthony the Abbot who was born in Egypt. (Which works out perfectly since Flynn and I are currently studying Ancient Egyptian Civilization!) I thought it would be nice to attempt to cook and serve each of these monthly meals this year. Because. If not now, when?
The menu for this month's saintly meal is Fattoush, a cucumber, tomato, and Feta cheese salad, Mahshy Koronb, Egyptian stuffed cabbage rolls, Koshari, Egyptian rice, lentils, and macaroni with spicy chili sauce, and Kunafa, a shredded phyllo cheese pastry. This is all new to me, but I think we can pull it together! I will be sure to let you know!
In other news of the week, Mocha joined Steve and me on our coffee date this week because
she literally cries and howls when I am gone I simply couldn't go without her. Peyton made her signature chocolate cake and it was amazing. And finally, Steve, Madison, Nicolas, and Flynn went sledding! They had a blast. And I was so happy. Happy they enjoyed it so. Happy my oldest loves to spend time with my youngest. And happy I was home, cozy and warm.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends.
Thanks for visiting!
What a great week! We had that Parmesan Noodle soup last night, even my "I don't like soup" kids enjoyed it! Thanks for posting about it. So glad you could spend time with the people you love in the best ways.ReplyDelete
Sunday's meal sounds fabulous! I love the sentiment and I can't wait to see how it turns out. So glad you all had a good week. I heard the sledding was awesome : ) Have a cozy weekend! Miss you! xxReplyDelete
The sledding adventure sounds like so much fun. Hope your planned meal goes well, such fun making it into another adventure. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Loving your Friday babes Lady. 😎 Sounds like a fun weekend ahead too! I'll be curious to hear about the Egyptian meals. What a cool idea. I hope you have a blessed weekend ahead. ❤️ReplyDelete
I love the sledding pictures. I loved sledding when I was a kid. Good memories. It was always fun to be able to find a good sledding place with my own children too. I love that you are fixing Egyptian meals as you are learning about Egypt this week. That is a super fun and interesting way to learn and one of the big advantages of homeschooling. Have a good weekend!ReplyDelete
Our dog loves to go bye, bye.ReplyDelete
I wanna go sledding, the good Lord knows we have enough snow to do so, grin. Thank you for sharing, I hope you have a beautiful Saturday, friend. smilesReplyDelete
Sounds like a wonderful week. That chocolate cake looks delicious. I'll be curious to hear how the Egyptian food comes out. Hope you are enjoying your Saturday.ReplyDelete
Fatoush is my favorite salad ever but I've never tried making it - thanks for the inspiration! My local Lebanese restaurant makes Kunafa with honey and pistachios - so yummyReplyDelete
Mocha is such a cutie, Billie Jo! So sweet that she joins you on your coffee date. It is a real blessing when siblings love to be together. Enjoy your lovely meal and hopefully more of that chocolate cake! It is making my mouth water.ReplyDelete
That sweater is so cute Mocha is wearing. It's perfect for Valentine's Day too. Peyton's chocolate cake looks Yummy. I so wish I had a piece to go with my coffee this morning. That is wonderful that you and Flynn are studying Ancient Egyptian Civilization. I smiled when you talked about it, as my dear Mother had a fascination with Egyptian culture, and actually traveled to Egypt in her 70's! The sledding day sounds wonderful! Fun times!ReplyDelete
