A Delicious Dining Experience !

Friday evening brought together Ken and I plus Nancy
at Acorn Cottage and her daughter. As you can see we
went to an Orthodox Church for dinner.
The flyer from the church's webpage shows just a sampling of what they had on the menu. Ken and I
each enjoyed the Russian meal and Nancy and her daughter tried the Lebanese meal.
Our meal started with a vegetable type soup then there
was salad, a cabbage roll served on a bed of wild rice
and a slice of brown bread we also had a round puffy
pastry with powdered sugar on it. Deeeeelightful!
Nancy's meal had what she called "Lebanese meat
loaf", rice with green beans, salad, pita bread and
the same pastry Ken and I had.
Now you must realize that we were ALL stuffed to the
hilt BUT we made the supreme sacrifice and waddled
over to the "Pastry Sale." Some of the items available were: (see menu above)
Baklava (Greek and Syrian)
Russian Tea Cookies
Ethiopian Bread
Needless to say we had fun, we were full AND we took
home "to go boxes" full of goodies.
I can't wait for next year!

  9. Are you and Nancy new friends from blogging? or did you already know each other. How nice to meet for dinner. Yummy menu!

    One of my daughters had a hard time with the Green Tomato Cake too...she doesn't like any kind of fruit pieces in her cake. It is truly out of this world...

    Maybe you'll give it a try???

    Watching the mailbox for my giveaway...no pressure...just excited!

    Thanks again, Carrie

  11. Hi Carrie--

    Nancy and I have been friends for awhile now.
    We met when our husbands went to their 20th high school reunion. Nancy and her husband lived in California then, they moved back here
    and we've been friends since. Now we blog.
    I'm still not sure about the cake????
    I'm working on getting your goodies to you--PT
    is keeping me busy. Keep watching.
    Melinda

  12. Oops forgot to say, thanks for visiting That Old House... and when it's time to tuck away the cauldron with the other Halloween dec, I'll pull out the flowers and the foam, and use them somewhere else!
    Or just put them in a big bag that I am going to keep other fake flowers in for safekeeping. I haven't really used any faux flowers for many years, so I'm starting from scratch!
