Monday I made falafel. I have to admit that it started out as a packaged mix from Fantastic foods but I added a few spices to give it a kick. I baked it in the oven rather than frying to cut back on the fats. Unfortunately this also dried it out considerably. So rather than fling my hockey puck like patties across the dining room I improvised.

Enter the Sour Supreme mixed with diced cucumber, dill and garlic. It was cool, tangy and a perfect accompaniment to the patties. I plan on enjoying these delish leftovers wrapped up in pita or tortillas for the week. Yum yum.

Pictures of my new kitchen

Life has been insanely busy since late June. I wanted to share some pictures of our new kitchen though. We are all moved in and almost all the boxes are emptied, just one room left to unpack really.

This is my new kitchen. The space is nice but I am still settling in.

My kitties Gryphin (gray & white) and Baby (black and white) got in on the picture because they are such attention needy felines. As for the kitchen, I am still struggling with becoming comfortable with the fridge. I am not a fan of side by sides but these appliances all came with the house so I need to at least get along with them. The stove is awesome, lovely flat cook top. The counters are large enough that I have trouble deciding which side to chop on. I love the fact that now all my canisters of flour, vital wheat gluten, nooch, egg replacer, sugar, and date sugar can sit right out all beautiful on the counter.

I hope I have some recipes and pictures to share from this kitchen soon!
