What’s On The Agenda…..

Good Morning-

I hope you all had a wonderful Father’s Day weekend!  We lucked out with gorgeous weather, the rain held off until today.   My husband Joe is on a well deserved fishing vacation in Canada, he’s in his glory!  He’s taken my son Jack as well, pretty spectacular graduation gift, don’t you think? 

I’m gearing up for my week of cooking.  What I’m most excited to get working on is my version of falafel.  If you haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy falafel, it’s a delicious Lebanese dish made of garbanzo beans.  Traditionally it is fried, but I want to make my own version of an “oven fried” falafel.  Garbanzo beans, onions, lots of garlic and spices go into a food processor.  It is then shaped into balls and fried.  In my opini0n, best enjoyed on whole wheat pita bread with fresh cucumber and onion with a delicious tahini sauce…can’t wait! 

I’ll also be working on a traditional Lebanese salad, tabbouleh.  Made of bulgur wheat this salad is the perfect accompaniment to a fabulous falafel sandwich. 

If you haven’t tried these Lebanese specialties, I think you should give it a try.  The flavors are amazing and you will not miss having meat.  Healthy and delicious.

Look for these recipes in a few days.

Have a great day!
