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.
With only half a day at Great Basin NP, I took a further detour to southwestern Utah, hoping to take in a brief stay at Bryce Canyon national park before heading straight for eastern LA. During the summer, one could do the national park trifecta: Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Grand Canyon. However, the north rim of Grand Canyon is closed in the winter.
(Warning: lots of photos.)
I was watching an episode of America’s Test Kitchen I had recorded a while ago but hadn’t gotten around to watching. I was pleased to see that their uber-French toast recipe wasn’t too far from mine, but had one important difference worth calling out: flour.
I had a lot of fun researching the road signs and thought I’d delve into another area of mystery: roads themselves. So today, I’ll look at weird things like road striping, road dots, and the interstate system in general.
