Can You Stand This Face?

Look at his little hand…he ripped that injera like he was back in Ethiopia and swiped up all those good Wot juices!

This was the face of a little boy whose mama FINALLY made him some traditional foods.

I had done it in the last…3 years…because I do not like to screw up.  I do not like to waste money on food that we throw out.  I do not like disappointing people.

So, what do I do?

I have an AWESOME friend who sent me some inspiration in the form of Berbere and Tumeric with a side of crunchy injera chips.

What else did I do?

I took the bull by the horns, got some great recipes from said friend and I did it.

I also invited my friends and their kids.  My daughter’s male person…friend…came over.

I thought if I’m going to screw up…I’m going to do it with style.

I worked from about 9:30 this morning until we ate at 6:30.

I had Bug taste test everything (because she is willing). She wanted some spice added to a couple of dishes, but all in all she said they tasted like the Queen of Sheba restaurant!

I also had my friend bring plain rice, fried rice, stuffed onions and stuffed peppers….just in case.

They totally weren’t needed!

Little Man’s favorite was the Doro Wot!

I will certainly be doing more of this in the future.  He deserves to remember his traditions from his country.

This is our journey of adoption, love, homeschooling and living life to the fullest.....even if we do live in chaos (can't have anyone over syndrome).
