Since we studied about Ethiopia in history last week, I’m trying my hand at an authentic Ethiopian meal. I’ve always enjoyed trying new recipes, and it’s a great way to tie in a bit of history and culture into our mealtimes.
The most common Ethiopian meal that I’ve found online consists of a spongy bread called Injera that is topped with Iab and Doro Wat – or cheese and chicken. So, I’m going to give it a go, and I’ll let you all know next week how it turns out.
Here’s what’s on our menu plan for this week:
Monday – burgers, macaroni and cheese, veggies and hummus
Tuesday – ground turkey tacos, black beans and rice, raw veggies and hummus
Wednesday – coconut lime chicken, cilantro lime rice, steamed green beans
Thursday – Injera, Iab, and Doro Wat (see above!)
Friday – leftovers
Saturday – dinner out (it’s Mom Prom for my oldest son and I, and everyone else is planning to either grab fast food or toss some frozen pizzas in the oven)
Sunday – this one’s still up for debate….either pizza or Skyline for the Super Bowl!
