Mennonite Monday started because I wanted to make recipes from the Bethesda Mennonite Church Cookbooks (both the yellow and the white cookbook for those of you who own them). I also wanted to take pictures of each recipe that I made, so I would know for future reference what the recipe should look like. I am by no means a great cook, but I think it will be fun to try new and different recipes each week. Not all of these recipes are for ethnic Mennonite food, but the women from Henderson know how to cook, so I can safely say that these recipes will be good. Check back each Monday for a new recipe and feel free to leave a comment if you have a favorite recipe from these cookbooks, or if you have some tips on what I should make and how I should make it.
After a crazy week last week, see next post, I opted to host Mennonite Monday on Tuesday. To be honest, I do think I cooked anything last week. I'm pretty sure I ate, but I was so busy I couldn't really tell up from down and I was not organized enough to plan ahead. I decided to whip up a Orange Julius (pg 2W) for something refreshing and it definitely hit the spot. My mom actually put this recipe in the cookbook and when I asked her about it she said "Oh I put that in there, I made those when we were first married," which is why I never remember having them growing up. Now I'm kind of wishing we would have had them more because they are really good.
