The berbere is a little time consuming to make but it made a lot so you can keep it in your refrigerator and have several meals from it.
The cool thing about the evening was how excited the kids were about dinner that night! They kept saying how good it smelled and actually ate most of their food-- talking about how they can't wait for Taye to be here to eat it with them! This is not the type of food that they would normally like-- a little spicy. I love that they seem to really want to connect with their baby brother!
looking much more excited than in the previous post

So you may notice that the food is on a tortilla and we do use silverware. :) I attempted Injera once and it was okay (barely) --then we went to Abyssinia and tasted how delicious their Injera was-- Kevin can't stop talking about how good it is and how perfect it was for scooping up the food and the sauce. In addition, I did not have any teff in the house -- shocking --and hated to bother Janet W. again (thanks Janet). So tortillas will have to do for now but I will try again.:) hmmmm, maybe Williams Sonoma will start selling those large flat stones they use for making the injera and I will get really good at swirling it while we are in ET... or... maybe we could buy extra at the restaurant and freeze it until Target starts carrying it ?! Adoption has been such a journey for our family. There are so many ups and downs - but the chance to have another culture that will actually become part of our family is something I love about this journey!
