Hello Mae,
Your meals look delicious. I love eggplant, it looks yummy with the tomatoes and cheese. The chicken with oranges looks delicious too. Thanks for sharing the links. Have a great weekend.

Interesting. I have to say that I am not at all familiar with Ethiopian cuisine but it sounds like something I should look into . Why not? I love your little herb garden and I am anxious to get back to Pennsylvania to get some plants and start mine. We leave Florida tomorrow to return for the summer.

Your meals look delicious! We had our first grill of the season last weekend. It is always so great to be cooking outdoors again. Have a good weekend!

I think about growing herbs but then I'm always afraid I am going to kill them!

Those Ethiopian dishes look scrumptious. I have had chicken with very hot Ethiopian red pepper powder. Almost too hot to eat!

Everything looks great, I will have to return to the Curried Cauliflower and Peas and take a look at the recipe...I love finding new ways to cook cauliflower.

All your food looks delicious! I'm hoping to start a small herb garden when we get up to CT in a couple of weeks.

I always enjoy your week in food posts. You stage them so beautifully! I either forget till I've messed it up -- or forget entirely!

Can I come and live at your house? lol All of your meals look and sound amazing. I'm especially interested in your experiments with Ethiopian food, including Chicken in Tej Sauce with Oranges.

And who wouldn't enjoy eating a little bit more if you are eating in that beautiful yard?

That food looks so good. I have my own herb garden as well.
Have a great week.

You look to have eaten well this month! I love exploring new cuisines, and Ethiopia is one where the book definitely needs to be opened. Marcus Samuelsson has been staring at me from the cookbook shelf for awhile now, with so many intriguing Ethiopian recipes.
