Dining with Duggars


Making dinner for nineteen kids is a challenge in itself, but what about having dinner guests? How do the Duggars balance meals for themselves and visitors?
The answer: Salad, lasagna, and french bread.
"We do this meal quite a bit, whenever we have guests," Jana told TLC. "It's an easy meal that feeds a lot of people."
Whether volunteering at a homeless shelter or making dinner for friends, the Duggars practice JOY (Jesus 1st, Others 2nd, Yourself last).

"When we keep JOY in the perspective," said Michelle. "That's really what we're trying to teach."To help enforce JOY, the Duggars always let their guests fill their plates first.

Do you have dinner guests often? Do you have a special meal that you like to cook for them?

Lasagna and the fixings sound yummy! We try to have members of our church over pretty often. I usually fix taco soup. We serve it with corn chips, cheese, and sour cream! It's yummy!

We rarely have people over for dinner. It would be nice but yeah its never happened. I think its always nice to let the guest eat first because the are the guests they get to eat first that is how I was raised and I am glad the Duggar's let the guest eat first not only does it follow the teaching of J.O.Y. its also good manners.

We have friends come over almost every Friday night. I love making Cincinnati Chili or Tortilla Soup and lots of times we just order pizza and have an easy dessert like brownies and ice cream.

What is Cincinnati Chili? It is good manners to let guests serve themselves first. To be honest I usually order pizza and Buffalo wings to feed a crowd.
