Recipes and Suggestions
*Please feel free to modify and be creative with these plans to suit your family!
8. The Table: Genesis 43: 26-34
Set the table with a pretty tablecloth, maybe some flowers or candles too!

9. The Chairs: Genesis 18: 1-8
Decorate the chairs with streamers or pretty fabrics!

10. The Bread: Ruth 2:8-14
Any type of Bread or Rolls would work well for this symbol. We’ve decided to make the Lamb of God Rolls from Catholic Cuisine. Guest author Lara says, “This Lamb of God can be made with any suitable (read: yeast) dough. If you’d rather not make your own dough, frozen bread dough will work just fine.

11. The Wine: Isaiah 55:1-2
The bubbles from the lemon-lime soda cling to the grape "ice cubes" giving this refreshing beverage lots of sparkle.

12. The Milk: Deuteronomy 26:8-10
We thought this would be a good way to help finish off all of that lingering Easter candy!

13. The Pot of Honey: Mark 1:4-6
We thought that some Honey Butter would represent the “Pot of Honey” very well and go perfectly with the Lamb of God rolls. To simplify this even further, you could purchase some pre-made Honey Butter or Creamed Honey.

14. The Fruit: Song of Solomon 4:16
Any type of fruit or your favorite families favorite fruit salad would be perfect for this menu item. Here is a recipe from Catholic Cuisine for a Twelve Fruit Salad in honor of the twelve fruits of the Holy Ghost.
This one includes:
Strawberries, Blueberries, Red Grapes, Green Grapes, Kiwi, Pineapple, Mandarin Oranges, Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Honeydew, Peaches, and Apples

You can find the entire menu and directions with a shopping list available for printing over at Scribd or for viewing over at Jessica's.
