I hope this blog will be helpful to you in your adoption whether you are considering, waiting or home. I started this blog when we were adopting and found there was next to nothing on the web in any orderly manner. I set about to collect information for myself and then for others. Now, there are more sites for resources, but still not much that brings it all together. I hope this blog will serve as a sort of clearing house for Ethiopian Adoption Information. Please feel free to contribute your knowledge through commenting.
You can search by topic in three ways. 1. Go to the "key word" tabs on top and open pages of links in those topics. 2.

Ethiopian food

Interested in making some Ethiopian food? Some of it is hard and others are not so hard. Many cities have a market and some restaurants are willing to sell spices and "take out" Injera. Just ask. None here in Colorado Springs though. :(   Here are some other resources for you to check out. 

My boys did not like Berebere. Ok, that is weird most have told me, but they did not and not only that but pepper was too spicy as was salsa and onion and garlic...... go figure! They got my genes after all, how that happened only God knows. Ok, now that they have been here a while and figured out that Daddy likes hot stuff, they are more likely to at least try it. Like it, well, that is anyone's guess on any given day or hour of the day. They are preschoolers, what should I expect. But, I do know that they ate pasta and soup in Ethiopia and they LOVE that. Of course Injera and a variety of not so spicy dishes continue to be the top favorites. They also love eggs. Beef has been hard to get used to and they generally don't like it. So, here are some sites to entice you to try out some yummy Ethiopian food and maybe embolden you to at least try to make a few dishes occasionally. I like the ones that tell about food and eating too. Very informative. I put some photos at the end so you can see what this looks like. Yes, you eat with your hands. Oh, I have to stop this post now. It is making my mouth water!!! Good thing we are going to Denver this Sunday for church (Addis Kiddan) and lunch at Habesha. Our way of celebrating a combined Genna and Timket.
