    Coconuts in the trash! Horrid! All the raw desserts that could be made with them. So sad. Great eats. You look like you had ton of fun. I like international fests. Pansit is awesome too!

    Sounds like a very full weekend indeed. Lots of food, fun and time with someone special. Wow, really a lot of food!

    What?!!!! How could I have missed that festival? My husband grew up in Belgium, so he loves all things international. I’m depressed that I didn’t hear about it. Kansas City is way cooler than people would guess. I love povitica. That is some yummy stuff, and you’re reminding me that I need to go to Blue Nile again and try that honey wine ASAP!

    Majorly awesome weekend!

    Though I wasn’t a fan of the honey wine like my honey was, I am left drooling for more ethiopian food.

    When they say coconut “milk” they aren’t kidding. It tasted like the leftover milk after chowing down a bowl of fruitloops. And yes, between the nuts, the balls, and the noodles, we had very full mouths on Saturday. 😉

    Amber would say she’s terrible at making pancakes and crepes. But, you should know that she made several very nice looking, nearly symmetrical crepes for her first time. *Gives her round of applause*

    Let’s do it all again soon! XOXO

    Restaurant pics + festival pics = me ditching work to go find food…fast!! Every single thing looked fantastic!

    Misir watt contains just about all of my favorite ingredients. I have to look up your recipe…

    As for the Nutella, I stuffed my wedding cake with it! 🙂

    First of all, yay for a date night! I really need to get one schedule for me and my husband….it’s been too long!

    And, what a cool festival! That food looked and sounded amazing!

    I was so close to going to the Ethnic Enrichment Festival! We’re going to bump into each other one of these days!

    The awesomest of awesome weekends! I’m so glad to hear you and Matt had such a lovely time together 🙂 Though it’s very cruel of you to taunt me with mention of those blondies… Funny, though, I know those pancake balls as poffertjes. I wonder what the difference is?

    I wish there were something closer to the Leavenworth/Lansing area. We just moved here and I’m still trying to find ANYTHING close! I can’t believe I have to drive almost an hour to a whole foods!

    Sounds and looks like a wonderful night. Thanks for sharing and your pictures are great. I’m on a search for a chocolate spread besides Nutella. My children all have nut allergies. Please share if you know of one.

    Plan B

    Oh man, I LOVE Ethiopian food! I was instantly addicted from the very first time I tried it, but have yet to make my own injera that could compare to the restaurant version. Your photos look so good, I’m very tempted to order out right now!

    I’ve been meaning to try Ethiopian food. Looks delish- and what a great festival!
