  1. It’s been years since we went to our Armenian church Father’s Day picnics! But looking at your photos brings back memories from the ones I went to growing up at Colt State Park in Bristol. I’m glad you had fun 🙂

  2. what a fabulous church picnic! i’m so glad you have found a church that feels like home and is Y’ALLS church 🙂 those sandwiches sound absolutely incredible!

  3. Wow…what a spread! They really go all out. It looks like a fabulous day. I’m glad you feel at home in Philly!

  4. Finding a great church home is crucial to settling down in an area… and loving it! I’m so glad to see that you have been able to do that. Plus, I’m sure you feel like you know so much more about your husband… being able to see him with all the folks he grew up with. Such a great thing! And the food looks wonderful, too!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this with us! It is so heartwarming to know that other people love their church like I love mine!!!

  6. I love church picnics! We have ours every summer and it is truly one of my favorite days. I always look forward to it. Your’s looks like so much fun!

  7. Wow that’s amazing. What a great time with everyone coming together.

  8. Wow that looks delicious and please please share that burger pilaf recipe it looks like it’s something that I would devour!

  9. wow sabrina, that all looks amazing!! i eat lavash bread and tomato/cucumber salad all the time! on another note, i was in fairmount yesterday looking at my boyfriend’s new apartment, and i spotted a capogiro umbrella at a restaurant. turns out, it was’t capogiro – it was mugshots! i immediately recognized it! maybe when the boyf moves in and i’m down there for a visit, we could have a little meetup for cupcakes and coffee 🙂

  10. awww. I miss church picnics! We haven’t found a church we love in our new town yet (I guess not so new anymore!).

  11. If my church had barbecues like that I would go a lot more often! Hate that we “Americans” are stuck with hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. etc. = grossness. That Armenian food looks fresh, healthy and delicious.

  12. WOW…that is one awesome church picnic!!!

  13. That looks awesome, Sabrina! I’ve been trying to get the hubby to go to our local Armenian church but so far he hasn’t budged.

    It looks like they make their bulgur pilaf with “shayler” noodles. Is that right?

  14. This looks like so much fun! And the food looks delicious! Have so much FUN in Jordan! I can’t wait to see pictures and hear stories. Be safe!

    I just discovered your blog and love it! I’m Orthodox too so it’s neat reading about your Armenian church. 🙂 I was actually in the country of Georgia for the summer of 2008 and was on the border with Armenia a couple of times~ beautiful area!!

      @Anna, Thanks for your nice comment! Lucky you to have visited Georgia! I would love to go to both Georgia and Armenia one day.

      Thank you for reading!

    I married into an Armenian family too and I’m slowly learning to cook all the foods. I just learned how to make meat dolma (stuffed zucchini, peppers, etc). That looks just like the church picnics where my husband grew up in Queens. I love going to them- I feel like an honorary Armenian now.
