Ethiopian collards

This one turned out quite good. Even Dawit was stuffing his mouth. (He had gas later.)

1 bunch collard greens roughly chopped
1 medium onion chopped
1 heaping tablespoon niter kebbeh
1 small glove garlic minced
1 small hot green pepper sliced (I removed the seeds)
1 cup vegetable stock
salt to taste

Wash and chop greens. Be sure to remove the woody stems. Melt niter kebbeh in a heavy bottomed pot. Add onions and sauté on medium heat for a few minutes. Add garlic and stir the garlic and onion constantly so your garlic doesn’t burn. Cook until onion is translucent. Add pepper and greens. Stir around well so greens are covered in niter, then add a cup of broth. Let the greens simmer on low heat until the liquid cooks off.

Pretty easy.

I'm gonna hold off on the shiro recipe. I got it from Birtukan while we were cooking in Ethiopia but it just didn't turn out great. I need to tweak the recipe.

You are making my mouth water Lori!! I need to try these recipes sometime SOON! :)

As for the bear... it is really seperate pieces stuffed and then sewn together... But the hats and the body and the legs, etc. are just made w/ single or double crochet stitches.. you just chain a few, then slip stitch to form a ring and then around and around you go (adding stitches in the beginning... two sc in each sc around for round 1, then two sc in every other stitch around for round 2, then two sc in every third stitch around for round three... etc until you have the base how big you want it, and then keeping the stitches the same until it is as deep as you want it...

I am so proud of you, actually cooking instead of going to Gojo! We'll have to swap recipes on Saturday. Praying for no snow.
