Ethiopia, Africa. I can not wait to travel across the world to bring home our child. Until then, we are learning all we can about Ethiopia. We have some dear friends that are celebrating bringing home their son from Ethiopia a year ago. Tammy made an amazing Ethiopian meal for us and some other friends last night. It was yummy! We had injera and doro wat along with some other Ethiopian dishes. We are learning that injera is not only a type of bread, but it is a eating utensil. In Ethiopia this spongy, sour flatbread is used to scoop up meat and vegetable stews. Injera also lines the tray on which the stews are served, soaking up their juices. Injera is made out of teff flour, which is high in protein and flourishes in the highlands of Ethiopia. Doro Wat is a spicy Ethiopian chicken dish. It is so fun to be learning about and soon to be very connected to the Ethiopian culture.

Ryan and I ate out at an Ethiopia restaurant a few months ago. Here is a picture of our meal.

After the meal last night we had a sweet time with friends. I'm so thankful for all of our friends. We are blessed.
