If you are a first time visitor, and are just beginning to menu plan you might want to read this post I first wrote 2 years ago called Menu Planning 101 . Are you wondering what halal means? Halal is the the Arabic word for “permitted.” Halal is commonly seen as “Halal food” which means food that is permitted under Islamic guidelines as found in the Qu’ran. Halal also extends to the humane slaughter of animals. In our house we get our meat from a halal butcher, and shop for products that do not contain pork or pork byproducts.
