Greek Night: Nikki

Nik, I can't remember what the food that you made was called but it was DELICIOUS. So, put up the recipe! :)

Native American Night: Kindy

Kindy made delicious Navajo Tacos, so here is a recipe I found online:

• For Navajo Fry Bread:
• 4-5 Cups flour
• 1/2 Cup instant milk
• 3-1/2 tsp Baking powder
• 2 Cups water
• 1 tsp Salt

• 1-1/2 lbs Ground beef
• 1 Can pinto beans
• 1 Onion, chopped
• 3/4 tsp Garlic salt

For Toppings:
• Grated cheese
• Onions
• Salsa
• Lettuce

• Oil for frying

How to make Navajo Tacos:
• Take a bowl and mix ingredients to make fry bread.
• Pour water and stir well.
• Knead the dough lightly, cover and keep aside for about 15 minutes.
• Heat one inch vegetable oil in a 10 inches skillet.
• Pinch off dough in small amounts and pat the dough into thin 8 inches circles.
• Fry them in the hot oil until brown on both sides.
• Now drain on paper towels.
• To make filling heat oil and fry ground beef and onion until brown, drain.
• Add beans and garlic salt with it.
• Simmer for about 10 to15 minutes.
• To serve, spoon filling onto the fry bread.
• Top with grated cheeses, lettuce, onion and salsa

Jerusalem Night: Jessica

Jessica hosted Jerusalem Night, and we played Ticket to Ride.
Jess, if you have recipes or fun facts from Jerusalem, post them!

French Night: Jess and Kelsey

French Night begins our journey into the lands of many cultures. Kindy made crepes, and we all had French names (if you can remember yours, post it as a comment) and watched Passport to Paris.

Crepe Recipe:
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted

1.In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
2.Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
3.Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.
