Bethlehem Dinner

We look forward every year to setting aside a special evening which we call our "Bethlehem" dinner. We prepare foods that the Savior may have been familiar with. Our menu includes dishes that have been in my husband's family for generations that originate from the Jerusalem area. We play soft Christmas religious music and eat by candlelight and clay lamp light. We have a short devotional or share some historical facts about the time and places Jesus lived in.

Menu:
Stuffed Grape Leaves
Sfeeha
Baklava
Spinach Pies (you can also buy these at stores like Costco in their frozen section labeled as Spanakopita)
Pita Bread
Hummus
Grapes
Mediterranean Olives
Grape Juice
Cucumber Salad
etc.

I'm planning on doing this, but your link for spinach pies, and baklava don't show the recipes. Do you have a recipe?

Sorry about the links not working. Thanks for letting me know. They should work now. If not all the recipes are located on the blog under the label "Recipes".

If you need any other help let me know!

This is a wonderful idea that I will be including in my family's advent calender this year. Thank you for sharing.
