I have some foodie post catching up to do.
Last night we had falafel for dinner. I think I make pretty good falafel, in part because I make my own pita bread. It's easy enough to do and really makes a delicious difference. Here's my high-tech pita cooking process: a really hot cast iron pan and my stove as a cooling rack.
And the delicious results!
But the falafel last night wasn't quite as good as usual. I couldn't put my finger on the reason why, especially since the pita was even better than usual. As I was drifting off to sleep last night, it hit me (yes, I do think about food- or knitting- as I'm falling asleep!): pickles! I didn't put any of my tasty little Syrian pickles on my falafel! Argh, such a missed opportunity. And I can't believe I forgot my pickles!
On an unrelated note, we got some good stories for the kids at the library the other day, and our daily story sessions have gone up even more! Zion is already quoting from several of the books. Here they are having a bedtime story with Robert on Liel's bed.
Hope the quote today is a bit easier, my lovelies!
