Lets hear it for the USPS people; 3 weeks later a small parcel from Texas made it's way here via donkey cart through Tajikistan, carrier pigeon through Russia and a hopelessly lost dog musher here in Alaska. Whew! What a trip it's had.
And what did this package contain? My green white elephant gift exchange present from Monica at Lick the Bowl Good. And what did my present contain? Mmmm a wonderful mix of delicious things I would never buy for myself. Roll on Ginger perfume, Invigorating scrub in the same ginger flavor, (er scent), a beautiful journal and a gold mini photo album. Plus each of the 2 little packages came wrapped with a little adorable red mitten! How did she know me so well? I love the little mittens and they will probably hang on my tree forever. Now if I could just think of something to write about...
Last night we had Falafel made from a mix, Fantastic Foods I believe, and gee they were so good. Simple too. You just mix it with the required water, let it set for a while about 15 minutes then roll in balls and pan fry. While it was resting I whipped a bowl full of Nancy's plain yogurt with some feta, dill and a pinch of mint for a great sauce. I served them in pita pockets with the sauce, some chopped lettuce and thinly sliced Mezzettas Sweet Banana Wax Peppers. It was a really great little sandwich we all loved. And we had tater tots, my kids love these things so I relent and buy them once in a while. I actually cooked them on preheat so they got broiler-ish action on the top and bottom, they were fantastically crispy and actually good. I did NOT just write that!
