Another quarter, another plumbing project: replacing all four bathroom sinks because the overflow drains have rusted out. These weren’t that important until my kids reached the magical age where they easily become mesmerized by rapidly flowing water. I can’t come down on them too hard because I want them to wash their hands.
Inspired by Christopher Kimball’s America’s Test Kitchen and general fun with Cook’s Illustrated, I tried making homemade uber eggnog. This was my first truly bad recipe experience.
A couple of months ago the Pike Place Market CSA had an end of harvest sale and I picked up 5 pounds of dried, organic chick peas. Tonight, I made falafel and hummus dip. I hope you’ll excuse the huge pat on my back (and my stomach), but this meal turned out excellent.
The falafel and hummus recipes are adapted from Rose Elliot’s Complete Vegetarian Cuisine. The tahini sauce is my own workings.
