This Friday the Our Supper Stories Community is having its first "Block Party". It is a chance to show our appreciation for this community, highlight some amazing business owners (and their stories, of course!), raffle off some awesome prizes and just have an overall good time. But what's a Block Party without food? Our "bring a dish" aspect of the Block Party is such a fun way to give everyone a chance to participate, share a bit about themselves and open their kitchens up to our community!

I have several recipes from the Community to share, and this one comes from Cindy, @homemaker_mama! Cindy is an *amazing* mom of many with a HUGE heart! She has the most beautiful family and a sincere heart for God. I LOVE that this recipe tells part of her family's story and celebrates it's diversity. Below you will find the recipe for "Ethiopian Tibs", as well as a little bit of the story behind why it is special to Cindy and her family:

"This is a recipe near & dear to our family, and has a special heritage connection for a few of our kids.

Three of our children were born in the beautiful country of Ethiopia. My husband and I were blessed to be able to travel there to see their birth land in person and take in the beauty and the culture so we could have those stories to tell them as they grow up.


This is such a simple's the Berbere that makes it so good! I order mine online at Traditionally, in Ethiopia, this would be served with Injera...a type of fermented flatbread. They basically use Injera as their utensils in Ethiopia. They break a piece off and scoop up their food with it. So delicious! Injera can also be ordered from"



2-4 cups of cubed chicken or beef (depends on your family size)

2-4 sliced green peppers

2-4 sliced onions

1-2 tablespoons of Berbere (Ethiopian spice) the more you use...the spicier it is!

Cooked rice



Cook chicken or meat pieces in a few tablespoons of oil

Add in veggies and berbere.

Cook covered, over medium heat, until cooked thoroughly.

Serve over rice.

Isn't it amazing how one unique ingredient can turn something familiar into something unique and amazing?! I cannot WAIT to try this recipe, Cindy! I am so grateful that you chose to share it with us for the Block Party! Thanks so much for sharing your kitchen and your beautiful family with us. <3
