Out of Africa Part 2
Well, we did it. I think a good time was had by all. The clubhouse looked great. We used some Ethiopian recipes and had doro wat (chicken stew) with creamed spinach, anjara (Ethiopian bread) and cream puffs for dessert. For appetizers, we had fried plantains and sweet potato croquettes along with Jungle Juice punch. The speaker was great. He gave a talk with slides about his work in Africa with wild dogs. I think the ladies of the club had a good time. I certainly hope so. I'm exhausted. I am working on the Mardi Gras committee in February but at least I don't have to chair that event.
