On Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump invited a team of footballers to dinner at the White House after they won the College Football Playoff National Championship.
The Clemson champions were served burgers, fries, pizza ... most of which came from fast food chains such as McDonald's, Burger King, and Wendy's.
Think of how many delicious Arab dishes you could serve with that amount of money. Why imagine? Let's take a look at local dishes that are pretty inexpensive (but fit) for dinner parties.
Dear Trump, take note for next time.
1. Hummus bites as hors d'oeuvres
Sophisticated and simple all at once.
2. Wara2 3enab bites are a must
Because no Arab dinner service is complete without them.
3. Batata Harra
Because who needs French fries when there's this? Simple, budget-friendly, and bursting with flavor.
For $900, we could fill up that dining hall from floor to ceiling.
An inexpensive super dinner starter.
6. Mini shawarmas
The best food you can find on any buffet.
7. Falafel bites
Inexpensive yet delicious.
8. Why not falafel burgers, too?
American fast food who?
9. Musakhan wraps
What's not to love here?
10. Add a nutty rice dish to complete the savory feast
11. And kubbah, of course
Kubbah for life.
12. It's an Arab feast, so guests must have dessert
Tamriyyas (date truffles) for everyone.
13. You thought one dessert would do?
Remembers it's an ARAB feast.
14. And in accordance with Arab hospitality
Coffee for everyone.
A dinner party done right, Mr. President.
