I just placed an order over at Ethiopian Spices. Shipping was very expensive, but the cost of the actual food items was very good.

My order:

Package of 10 injera- $6.99
8 oz. Berbere- $9.50
1 lb. Shiro- $9.00
1 lb. Red Lintil- $5.00

Obviously, I am not feeling up to the challenge of injera, but I do plan to make some Yellow (Misir) or Red (Kik) Lentil Stew (Wot). I also want to try Shiro and Doro Wat (Chicken Stew).

Once I get the hang of this Ethiopian cooking, I'll give you my version of the recipes and hints. But it might take me a while:)
