Our Ethiopian Christmas Dinner!

We had an Ethiopian Christmas Dinnerlike the girls remembered from their younger years. The kids were ALL in 7th heaven! (and Daddy loves this food too!!!) Our "L" made injera on Sat. We had ordered Teft (Ethiopian grain). Sometimes in the US we use cornmeal as the grain- but , it just isn't real injera! So, the kids were HAPPY!!

We invited some close friends from the beach. They had never had Ethiopian food, and had not eaten with their fingers since babyhood!!!!! LOL WE had so much fun. This will become an every year event!

A wonderful friend of my friends, is a painter and did a BEAUTIFUL picture of Ethiopian children running and playing. Several in the picture look like my kids!! My friends got me a print of this wonderful picture-- I am SO thrilled-- I LOVE it!! Thank you guys so much! And it is going up in the living room today!!!

We are going to do some Ethiopian dinners (not quite as BIG as yesterdays!!) but dinners every month- Just drop me a line if you want to come!!
Blessings to you all

You can bet if I lived close enough, I'd be by to try some. I am trying to get my hands on some good authentic Chinese dishes for the New Year. And yesterday, I found out my SIL does a couple Indian dishes. I'm thinking we ought to have a multi-cultural family dinner now that I know that about her!

Well I'm glad that the dinner was such a success! You'll need to post a picture of the print when you have it up!
