It's Genna!

Melkam Genna! Merry Ethiopian Christmas! We planned a last minute feast with the Rooneys for Genna last night. I must say...we are great cooks and should have broke out the berbere we bought in Ethiopia a lot sooner.
I made the Doro Wat and Ethiopian Honey Spice bread for dinner. We had a little bit of a hard time finding the injera, but alas, we live in the best neighborhood with at least 6 Ethiopian restaurants and at least 4 Ethiopian markets within 5 miles of our house, so although we had to make 4 stops to find the injera...it was all within a mile radius.
Friends and future husband and wife. I normally would never say that, but really, I don't think there will be another man good enough for Mezmur.
Mezmur loved the injera this time, but nothing else. Progress...
It has nothing to do with Ethiopian food and everything to do with our picky little eater that won't eat anything new...or really, anything at all that isn't white or covered with cheese.
The three joys of our lives. The reasons we live and the reasons we all have high blood pressure. Here, I believe, Ted is saying something crazy again.
My recipes came from another amazing adoptive mom and from a great site. Lori did an awesome job on the salad, lentils, and greens. Our feast was as good as any Ethiopian food I've ever had. Pat on the back...for sure.
