It did actually snow. A lot. Some even came in through the side door of our apartment building.
Outside was even more ridiculous.
Greg and I decided that we still wanted to hike over to Whole Foods to get some ingredients for a lovely dinner.
Most of the sidewalks were more or less plowed, but you’ll notice that the snow is almost waist high, and we’re not particularly short people.
Our main ingredients for tonight: Red lentils and collard greens. We also bought beer, a snowpocalypse must.
Greg decided that he was going to make our two favorite Ethiopian dishes: Gomen and Mesir Wat. We don’t have much experience with Ethiopian cooking, but it turned out so well tonight that I think we’ll be cooking this cuisine much more often. I even ordered a Berbere spice blend, which should be here next week.
Since we don’t know how to make injera yet, I whipped up some spelt tortillas to use instead.
Gomen (left) and Mesir Wat (right) on the stove.
Ignore our filthy stove. It is well loved.
It was ridiculously good. I can’t wait to post recipes once Greg perfects them!
The Mesir Wat was REALLY hot. We’ll have to tone it down next time.
Still ridiculously good, and really authentic tasting.
I hope everyone who was hit by the blizzard is enjoying the day off 🙂
