Sorry for the lack of posting! We have been running around like crazy getting everything ready for Miss Olivia. Tonight I ran by the Ethiopian Market near our house to pick up the essentials to make some shiro and lentils to freeze for when she gets home. I have been trying really hard to get everything from the bottles she uses at HH to familiar toddler foods like shiro and lentils so that transitioning her home won't be as hard. So here's a picture of my first attempt at shiro. Paul and I have been eating a lot of Ethiopian food this past year (it helps that we are not far from an Ethiopian community) and we both think that Erin's recipe is pretty close to the real thing! Tomorrow I will try my hand at the lentils because I ran out of onions. Who knew that you would need 5 onions for 1 pot of shiro!
Oh and tomorrow night I will be revealing the nursery!!! So stay tuned! 6 days until we leave! I can't believe it!
