Addis Abeba

I did the laundry this morning (wow, that’s a big washer) and then walked down Chicago about half a mile to Addis Abeba, an Ethiopian restaurant. It was delicious. I had a variety of vegetarian items: spicy chick peas, mild yellow lentils, spicy red lentils, marinated cabbage, and salad. There are no utensils in Ethiopian restaurants; you tear off pieces of the crepe-like bread and use it to scoop things up. Excellent service and iced tea. I’ll definitely be going back to this place.

For dinner I made meatloaf. The new secret ingredient is five spice.
