We have posted some themes and ideas for menus for your monthly meetings. Feel free to use them and to alter them as you would choose. There are several ways of coming together with a delicious snack or menu. Some groups have a sign-up sheet to pass around and have everyone to sign up for what they would like to bring for the next month. Other groups with a number of different churches involved have had the churches to be responsible for certain parts of the menu, or if large enough, churches could be assigned to provide the meal for the entire evening, alternating months.
Ice Cream Night: Ladies can bring various toppings to go along with the ice cream: bananas, cherries, strawberries, whipped cream, nuts, chocolate syrup, candies, cake decorating confetti, etc. You could also have a Banana Split Night, and use this idea. *Popcorn is an item that goes well with ice cream.
Sandwiches: Chicken, cheese, egg, or ham salad sandwiches served with salsa & chips are a great menu for a monthly meeting. Variations could be: lunch meat sandwiches & fruit, or sandwiches and soups.
Apple Night: Apple slices topped with caramel & nuts, or served with fruit dips. Have someone bring specialty breads and serve slices of bread with home-made apple butter... Apple cider can be your drink for the evening.
Soups & Sandwiches
Tater Night: A great hit, is to have someone bake several potatoes, and then have the ladies to sign up to bring various toppings, such as: broccoli, cheese, butter, sour cream, bacon bits, onions, parsley, etc.
Fun Favorites: This is really fun! One month have the ladies of your group to bring a dish in which the name of their food starts with the same letter of their first name. Talk about a pot-luck!
Individual Pizzas: Starting with english muffins, you can add sauce and then various toppings such as: ground beef, pepperoni, sausage, ham, cheese, and spices.
Making Jesus Known Around The World: Have a night to feature international foods.
Pizza Night: There are so many pizza recipes and types of pizza in today's world. Here are some ideas of various pizzas: veggie pizza, italian pizza, fruit pizza, apple caramel pizza, dessert pizzas of many kinds.
Taco Salad: Ladies can sign up for the different ingredients: ground beef, tortilla chips, taco sauce, dressings, lettuce, tomato, onion, bell pepper, olives, sour cream, etc. Since there are different likes and dislikes, allow the ladies to choose and create their own taco salad.
