Crockpot Doro Wat & My Little Assistant

I snagged this recipe from my friend, Elya, who had posted it on FB. I decided to try it out for K'Tyo's birthday dinner & had a few people ask for the recipe, so here you go! I even included a picture of the finished product. We either ate it over rice or dipped sourdough bread in it.

My only criticism of the recipe was that it definitely needed salt. Supposedly, to make it really authentic, you should use 1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper vs. 1 teaspoon.

Now, that's just crazy talk. The teaspoon provided plenty of heat for this family's taste buds.

According to K'Tyo, it was "yummy" and made his belly warm! ;o)

Today, I got busy making homemade rolls for Thanksgiving at my mom's. This has become tradition & is a must as far as the kids are concerned. I try to make extra after finding out that the hooligans kids got up a couple of years ago after I went to bed & got into them.

This year, I had a little assistant to help with the efforts. Bless her heart, I think the swing lasted all of 5 minutes. She much prefers being held.

But it's all good. Soon enough, she won't care to "help" but instead join the rest of said children in sneaking the rolls after Mama goes to bed.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!
