Rehus-Beal-Ledeats

This is the way some people on the continent of Africa tell one another Merry Christmas.

This year, we chose to pick some food from some different countries in Africa to eat for our traditional Christmas Eve meal.

It was delicious, and I enjoyed trying the new recipes.

Here is what was on the menu:



Appetizer: African Red Dip With shrimp

ATA SAUCE WITH SHRIMP

An appetizer from West Africa

Soup: African Beef and vegetable soup NKRAKRA

A soup from Ghana



Salad Tomato and Green Pepper salad

A salad from Morocco


Moroccan Herbed Olives



Moroccan Garbanzo Beans with raisins served with rice


Main Dish—Fish baked with Tomatoes and Spices

MTUZI WA SAMAKI

A main dish from Kenya

Dessert--Sliced Oranges with dates

A dessert from Morocco

There were a very delicious mix of flavors in the food prepared for this meal. Lot of coriander, hot peppers, and squash.

I enjoyed each part of the meal, and loved learning how they celebrate Christmas in different countries in Africa.

Here are some more of PKR, The Princess, Z2, Kiki Aru and Grandma Mary and Silver Valley Girl enjoying Christmas Eve.

"You know... this food would have been too spicy for IEG...." MIWW

Wow! What a spread. You are such a foodie photographer also. Be sure to tell Mom she looks about twenty years younger than Thanksgiving in your pictures.

Our new tradition included Rib Eye steaks, Caesar salad, and baked herb red potatoes. Merry Christmas to everyone.

That meal looks very yummy. What a great idea to celebrate while learning how others celebrate.

It was great sharing some time with you all at church last night as well. I hope you have a very blessed Christmas.
