Our First Homemade Ethiopian Dinner!

We made Ethiopian at home last night for the very first time. I'm pleased to say it was delicious! We made Doro Tibs, Mesir Wat, Shiro Wat and Alecha Wat. All of my favourites!

Our friends volunteered to be our guinea pigs and they enjoyed it also!

It is very easy to make, but it takes a lot of chopping and preparation. It is also better if you let it simmer for a long time. Worth it in the end! The only negative about making it at home is that the house REEKS of berbere, garlic and onions. We entered the house this afternoon after church and the scent was overwhelming, lol!
We have tons of left overs (we made enough to feed 20, I think) if anyone wants to come over! :)
