Last night I met up with one of my bridesmaids, Becky, for dinner at Mama Ayesha’s. The restaurant is about a 10 minute walk from the Woodley Park metro station, just over Rock Creek Park on Calvert Street. As you cross the bridge you will see this crazy/awesome mural on the side of the restaurant. I mean come on, Mama Ayesha herself with 11 presidents. Classic!
Dinner was awesome! We started with hummus
and then split two dinner.
We ordered Menzalah, which was layered eggplant topped with ground beef, pine nuts, almonds and tomato sauce baked and served with rice
and Mushakal Mashawi, which was shish kabob, shish taouk and kifta kabob served with rice and grilled vegetables. Both dinners were awesome! I loved the eggplant in the first dish and the grilled chicken in the second dish. Oh man, and the hummus was truly awesome!
A cup of decaf and 2 desserts brought our amazing meal to a close. I’m so thankful for my friends and love that Becky will be one of my bridesmaids. Tonight we talked about the bachelorette party, oh yeah! Vegas anyone?
While at dinner, I received a text from Neal’s sister Jill that baby Annabelle was born tonight!! Seriously, Jill is A-Mazing. As of 2PM this afternoon, she was sitting on her couch watching elf. 4 hours later she had her baby girl in her arms. Who does that? I am seriously in awe, considering Annabelle is her first baby but man are we excited to welcome Annabelle to the world! Happy Birthday Annabelle! In honor of Annabelle’s birthday, I thought a giveaway would be appropriate!!
