Last weekend was Melkam Genna which is when Ethiopians celebrate Christmas. To celebrate the holiday we headed to Oakland to have an Ethiopian feast. We love watching Aliyah when she eats Ethiopian food. She tears the injera and scoops up the wats like a pro. Nothing is too spicy for her and she has a huge smile on her face throughout the meal.
This trip we convinced Nick to try some of the food. He was hesitant at first but he found a non-spicy corn based dish that he liked.
Noah wasn't as adventurous and stuck to the peanut butter and jelly sandwich that I brought for him.
And to top off our great meal, the restaurant had our favorite Ethiopian beer, St. George. I've looked to see if we can buy it anywhere nearby or even order it and I haven't been able to find a resource. I guess it will be a special treat for mom and dad for when we go to Ethiopian restaurants.
