A couple of minor discoveries

I just figured out how to make knoshing falafel fun for me again
Apparently, the problem I've been having in recent years with (almost-always deep-fried) falafel  is that I can no longer drown it in tahina because that's just adding fat on top of fat, and my tongue and tummy no longer tolerate so much fat.  I just discovered last night that, when I eat the  falafel with no tachina on it, I like it much better.  I can always save the tachina for chicken kebabs.  My Zionist credentials are restored.  :)

I'm a kosher shrimp :)
I recently bought and wore two new jackets, and was told that both are too long, though they're both petites.  It would appear that no one makes jackets for real shorties.  At the rate at which I'm shrinking (thanks to osteoporosis), by the time I'm eighty, my jackets will be down to my knees.  :(

A month or two ago I learned how to make falafel. I can make boring falafel without any fat at all, or I can make good falafel with olive oil. (I am sure there's a way to make oil-free falafel not taste boring, but I have not stumbled across it yet).

Good for you for being a much more ambitious cook than I!

I've been doing just fine with falafel since I stopped drowning it in tachina.
