And my all-time favotite . . . STUFFED KOUSSA! Koussa is a lebanese name for zucchini. It's called stuffed koussa because you can put rice and meat, just rice, or just meat. Or anythig you like.

This is called tableh. It is a special kind of druming.

This is a dance called dabke if you go to a lebanese party or wedding and people are dancing in a circle, holding hands, and moving their feet in almost a pattern. Then they are doing the dabke.
