    Adventure #1- Try Ethiopian Food.
    I went to Nyala on S. Fairfax in Los Angeles (very good Zagat rating). I got the Vegetarian Combination so that I could try as much as possible. It included: yemiser wot (red lentil stew), kik alecha (mild yellow split peas), defen yemiser wot (whole lentil stew), yatakit wot (mixed vegetables), yabesha gommen (collard greens).
    A few things to note- everything is seasoned with fresh garlic and ginger and you eat with your hands (including the side salad).
    Here were the instructions:
    1. Tear off a small piece of ‘injera’ ( a crepe-like soudough bread) with your hands and place it on the dish of your choice.
    2. Grasp your fingers to scoop up the food into bite size portions you desire.
    3. Mold the bread until it soaks up the savory flavors that are essential to each dish.

      What an awesome adventure. I’m so afraid of new foods this is something I should consider doing.

      Congrats on trying this! I couldn’t tell from your post what you thought of it … will you be repeating this adventure?

    52 Adventures equals my first adventure in blogging! 

    Hello? Am I on? Is this working? I have never blogged before so this is an adventure all on its own!  I am thrilled to be a part of 52 Adventures!! I have enjoyed making my “list.” I have been giving it a lot of thought and a lot of questions have come up  too. What if I have a busy work week and don’t have the time for an ADVENTURE? Should I make a list of more than 52 things so I can be choosy? What if I do 2 in one week? What if something happens and its a spontaneous adventure, does it make the list after I’ve done it? After having voiced all of these I have come to the decision that their really aren’t any parameters. There are no limitations or expectations. I think  it is important for me just to do something! So with that, I share with you all MY LIST thus far.

    (More …)
