Adventures in Ethiopian Food

Last night, I went out for Ethiopian food with my friend Jackie! I can actually only remember having Ethiopian once before — at a restaurant in D.C. with a bunch of my high school friends.

No. more. driving!! :) It’s nice to be home — and even nicer because Matt is home this week, working remotely instead of from DC!

PFB Challenge #2: Fresh Thai Summer Rolls!

Today, I did something I’m very proud of: I made Thai Summer Rolls! And they were AWESOME. Yummmm! Thai is one of my absolute favorite types of food, but I’ve actually NEVER made a Thai recipe before! I always put it off because I never had the more obscure Thai recipe staples on hand, and was intimidated by the unfamiliar ingredients Continue Reading …
