For those of you who have never been to Disney World, and never been to Epcot, their park is broken up into different countries. Do not ask me to tell which countries they are, for I cannot remember. However, some of the food there, is off the hook.
So, there is a kid (23 if I am not mistaken) that works with my son, whom we have known since he was in high-school. He comes over to dinner many times a year,(yeah he knows where the good stuff come from) and now he has a girl he is interested in. She is vegetarian and she has introduced him to PETA and he has taken to watching the videos on the site. His whole outlook about meat has changed completely. And he knew if he could take her anywhere for dinner it would be the Jalil household. She is a relaxed vegetarian yet still not consuming meat, but she still consumes eggs, dairy and the such.
So I found out if she had any allergies and what she did not like. Once we got that out of the way, the menu planning began. So here is our menu for tomorrow nights dinner.
Tabbouleh -Middle Eastern (Recipe soon to be posted)
Egg Rolls - Asian
Mac and Cheese - American Comfort Food
Southern Sweet Tea - Another American Comfort Drink
Moroccan Stew - Morocco (Duh)
I will be making chicken for my son and husband if he wants some. My husband will easily let go of meat if the table has enough options to choose from, so my son may be the only one eating meat tomorrow night. I look forward to having this young lady in our home and I hope by having her over for dinner and not serving some frozen dinner style veggie food, she will feel more relaxed, but then again we are a kooky family.
