Ethiopia Round-up -- Finally!

Sorry it has taken me all summer, but I'm finally getting the Ehtiopia round-up post, please enjoy these lovely dishes...

First up we have Ethiopian Split Pea and Kabocha Squash Stew with Collards from Janet at the taste space, what a great start!

Next we have a bowl brimming with delicious Ethiopian Spiced Pumpkin Soup from Under the Blue Gum tree, looks so warm and inviting! 


These next three Ethiopian dishes are also from Janet at the taste space -- I guess we know who loves some Ethiopian cuisine, right? :)  The above dish is Ethiopian Split Pea Puree / Kik Alicha, what a nice color!

Here we have Fasoulia - Ethiopian Carrits and Green Beans Simmered in Tomato Sauce, where Janet lets us  know that you don't need all that oil for some Ethiopian veggie dishes, good information!

Finishing up our Ethiopian submissions is Ethiopian Warm Cabbage and Green Beans, thanks for all of your entries, Janet, they look delicious!


Lastly, a Bengali dish to share, also from Janet at the taste space. My apologies for not getting a link page up for Bangladesh this summer.  Thank goodness Janet didn't let that stop her from making a delicious Bengali Quinoa Bowl with Spinach and Almonds - Badaam vaali Palak.


Now, on to September when our destination will be Italy focusing on regional Italian cuisine, so pick a region and have some fun cooking up a dish or meal!  Will get a link page up soon, stay tuned and read up on regional Italian :)

MKMW back on!

Sorry for the long bout of no MKMW! With my kids out of school, things just got too busy for me to keep up and I ended up putting blogging on hold to enjoy the summer!

I've been missing our MKMW travels and apparently Margaret and Kayte (thanks for the messages!) are as well (and hopefully you too, Janet and Corina and everyone else!) so here we go again...

Loving the regional Italy suggestion -- maybe we could all pick a region and make a dish / meal from that area and just mention which region in your blog post?   Any non-regional Italian would be fine as well, of course!  I know I'm chomping at the bit to do some more cooking than the standard summer fare. 

How about Italy be our September destination?   That way we will have plenty of time and no excuses to make a delicious Italian dish or meal :) 

I will work on getting the Ethiopia round-up up soon and maybe even make some Injera that I bought the teff flour for back in May when Ethiopia was the country of the month, and haven't touched since... 

Hope you all had a safe and happy summer! New members are always welcome, I will do a Destination Italy post up with a linky area after I get the Ethiopia round-up posted in the next few days or so. 

Take care,
