Lebanese Night

We had a family dinner last night at my Uncle Johnny and Aunt Lynn’s house: It was Lebanese Night!!! Jealous? I would be! haha I LOVE Lebanese food.

Big thanks to Aunt Lynn for marrying my Uncle Johnny (our resident Lebanese man!).

Also, big thanks to Uncle Johnny for introducing us to this WONDERFUL cuisine!!

We were SO lucky to have our palates developed at such a young age to love all things lebanese! If you aren’t familiar to their foods- you are missing out, people! Go google local middle-eastern restaurants in your area and get on it! Be prepared for a TREAT!

Mimi and Aunt Lynn worked their tails off to prepare this treat of a meal!! Aunt Lynn even made a table cloth to look like the flag of Lebanon… so creative! :)

On the Menu

Kibbeh

Kefta

Chicken

Hashweh

Hashweh Rice

Tabbouleh

Hummus

Baba Ganoush

Labneh

Pita (from the Arabic Market)

Fresh Olives, Avacado, and Lettuce

And everything was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I am already planning on making some of these things again ASAP!!

Check out the GIANT table!! Aunt Lynn put 3 fold out tables together to make this one extremely large table! It was so fun to eat all the food family style!! Such a great idea!! :)
