I’ve been sick for days, so I don’t have the energy for either FFwD (even though it’s a SUPER-easy recipe this time), or a big long post.

So you have to settle for something we love, but that I rarely make myself: falafel, made from a boxed mix.

falafel with tahini sauce

Above, falafel with tahini sauce. Tahini sauce is made by taking tahini (try 1/4 cup to start) and adding the juice of a lemon and a pinch of salt. Mix well, then add a little water and mix well again. Keep adding water a little bit at a time until when you mix it, something magical happens and it turns from a tan paste to a lighter-colored sauce.

I have made falafel from scratch, and it’s much better than boxed, but boxed is good, and I lost the recipe and got lazy.

falafel with yogurt sauce

This one’s got yogurt sauce on it. I’d call it tzatziki, but there’s no cucumber. The yogurt sauce is drained whole-milk yogurt, a big handful each of finely chopped parsley and mint, a clove of minced fresh garlic, and a dash of salt.

Served both on whole-wheat pita with plenty of veggies. Good eatin’!

?? Compared to what in the USA? American football? Barmy! Americans I have met marvel at it. The only reasons it wont take off are cultural and economic Americans are resistant to change and their sponsoring corporations are too tied up in snorefests like NFL and its incomprehensible Superbowl. Soccer poured vast sums into the USA and it still doesn’t grab the imagination there outside the kids.Also, look at the horse’s ‘top line’.

Carrying a rider strengthens the abs, but also causes muscle to cheap oakleys sunglasses bulk up along the top of the spine, both in the saddle area and across the hindquarters. If an experienced person criticizes a horse for having ‘no top line’, they mean it has no muscle above the spine and is likely out of shape.Penguin with the Most to Prove: Marc Andre Fleury. Because who else could it possibly be? Much like Ovechkin I could give a care less about Fleury’s great regular season performances; the fact of the matter is that come playoff time Fleury has been as reliable as Dave Meltzer with Lucha Underground spoilers. Even with all the talent the Penguins have and have had, it hasn’t meant much once Fleury has turned into a basket case come every cheap jerseys from china April. He must be more cheap nfl jerseys like the man that won the Penguins a Stanley Cup all those years ago. At least, he must match Lord Henrik, whose superior to Fleury in almost every way.Online there are lots of online stores selling jerseys of different teams, so you can really get these Steelers jerseys.

Eight five, happy and wholesale jerseys healthy, doing what he loves instead of retiring fake ray ban sunglasses coming back for more. And he still gets jazzed by the game. He admitted that the Dodger’s turnaround this season from last place early on to where they cheap nfl jerseys currently sit atop the NL West with 10 1/2 game lead, he said that energized him. He’s coming back. Great news for Dodgers fans.

I run The Mom Food Project, which was born out of love for my mom and a desire to preserve the recipes of my childhood, which didn't actually exist in written form until I quizzed my mom and wrote the recipes down.

    1. Meeee, toooo! But I’m totally all about the condiments. I’m usually looking for something to put the sauce on, not the other way around.

  1. I love falafel! AND we made it for dinner tonight, I wish I could eat raw onions but I appear to be allergic :( I did use a one of MANY jars of green tomato relish from the pantry on mine though! I should send you a jar or ten :)

  2. It looks good to me – and I love yogurt sauce. Sometimes boxed is best especially when we are sick and just not up to cooking. Feel better, Serene!
