3 Years!!!!

To celebrate our 3rd Anniversary we went to "Queen of Sheba" an Ethiopian restaurant in Tampa. Ryan's sister, Rachel, gave us a gift certificate and we were excited to sample the cuisine. We were happily surprised at how much we enjoyed our dinner. We had a beef and vegetarian sambussa for appetizer, which is a thin flat bread hand-wrapped and stuffed with a combination of lentils, garlic, onions and peppers. For dinner we ordered a meal platter, which was four meat and vegetarian entrees. Ethiopians traditionally eat from one platter, only using their right hand. No utensils are used, you pick up with entrees by using ingera, which is a large sourdough "pancake" made out of fermented teff flour. For dessert the owner of the restaurant brought out fried ingera drizzled with honey and coffee (Ryan's favorite part). We had a wonderful experience and feel prepared to eat in Ethiopia!!!
