Yesterday, I wandered around aimlessly in the grocery store, trying to think of something different for supper.
Salmon? Cilantro & lime infused chicken kabobs? Chips and dip?
I stumbled down the Greek aisle, and suddenly the ideas were flowing. I grabbed falafel mix, couscous, tomatoes, cucumber and a few other randoms and - Opa! We were off!
I had never had a falafel before. For some reason, I had always thought it was meat, and I wasn't entirely sure what kind of meat, so I stayed away all together. Stupid me! Falafels not only take 2 minutes to make, but they involve all the things I love most in life:
All done and resting on a paper towel, the little falafels look like hamburgers. This was a sign of good things to come.
Instead of the traditional Greek salad with feta, we went wit
Not only was dinner great because of the taste, but also because bf and I made it together. Awwwe, how cute of us! And we even did it without arguing once! Greek food makes miracles happen, I tell ya...
For added excitement, we baked some escargot in garlic butter and topped it off with shredded romano and parm cheese. Remind me again why I ever pay $7.99 for 5 pieces of escargot at a restaurant? I'm pretty sure we had about 25 pieces each, for under $4 total.
