Most of the time when a craving hits, it’s for two things: carbs and cheese. Usually together.

And while I generally try to convince myself that even though I may think I want mac and cheese all day every day, what I really want is an apple or a salad or both….sometimes I just have to give in. On those days, I make grilled cheese.

Not only is it a pretty portion controlled way to get your carb/cheese fix, but it can also be rolled-up to give it a bit more “oomph” factor.  These grilled goat cheese sandwiches are the perfect example of this.

The Russian Centre for Science and Culture in Addis Ababa is preparing to commemorate the birthday anniversary of Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, who is considered the founder of Russian literature and to whom the centre was named after.

Established in March 1945, Emperor Haile Selassie I inaugurated the centre as a permanent exhibition illustrating Russian achievements and to bring to Ethiopia elements of Russian culture. Russia has maintained friendly relations with Ethiopia already from the late 18th century, providing medical aid during the battle of Adwa and was one of the few great powers who supported the stand for the freedom of Ethiopia at the UN, then known as League of Nations.
