Lunch was Mediterranean beef kofta and chicken kebab sandwiches with hummus, tzaziki sauce and homemade pitas. I spent a good part of the week prior planning and prepping the meal. The kids enjoyed baked mac 'n cheese with broccoli. If I'm being real, the parents enjoyed the pasta as well. I had splurged on American sharp cheddar cheese. After eating local cheese for so long, American cheddar tastes super salty and sharp and just plain rich!
technique as I used here. It was much easier with simply shattering the candy. This cake required a lot of labor but every single minute was a labor of love for me. You can see some more detailed photos over at Ladytroupe Sweets blog.
It was a relief to have this party finished so I could get back to my organizing and sorting for our move. But truth be told, I am also a little sad that we won't be throwing parties in this house anymore. It's been a great house for entertaining and we've thrown some seriously epic parties in Ethiopia. It's been a good entertaining run for me. I will miss it.
