There’s falafel in my burger!
Hey guys, I’m back! I feel like a real food blogger today. Let’s talk lunch, shall we?
I mentioned earlier that I would be trying the Sunshine Falafel burger at lunch today and now it’s that moment of truth…first of all, I should’ve remembered frozen foods etiquette and not refrigerated the patty with the rest of my lunch for 4 hours. Here it is going into the micro:
On top of my Chuck Liddell book that I hope to finish today because its overdue at the library! 😉
Anyway, after a good minute or so in the ‘wave, I managed to place it carefully on some whole wheat bread and topped it with some regular yellow mustard. I seriously debated condiments for this thing, I love the taste of falafel and I didn’t want to ruin it with sauces, cheese or anything else so plain ol’ mustard seemed like the way to go. Here is my entire lunch, including carrots + cucumber and spicy hummus, and a Musselman’s applesauce:
I managed to get through another chapter of the book after I ate, hooray!
The mustard worked really fine at being a neutral condiment to this amazing burger. It tasted just like falafel as I’m used to having it, only in burger form. I tried to get a close up but this picture does not do it justice.
I don’t have any at home right now but I’m thinking next time, I’m going to have to drizzle some tahini sauce on this bad boy. Mmm hmm…
A little while after lunch, I made myself some herbal peppermint tea and had a nice piece of dark chocolate, courtesy of Courtney who is always so gracious to share her candy stash with me including Dove, Bliss, jelly beans, I feel as though I owe her a gigantic bag of candy from all that I’ve eaten over the years 🙂
One of my favorite things about the Dove chocolates (other than being awesome!) is the messages on the inside of the wrappers…this one says “Laugh, laugh and laugh some more.” Great advice!
I just finished my afternoon snack of two Ryvita crackers with some Krema natural PB. I just realized today that I had been on a huge PB&Co kick at one point but these days I am really enjoying the more natural, not very sweet, peanut butters. I guess it just shows you that like the seasons, our tastes go through phases and this is what I am on right now.
Pretty yummy schmeary goodness!
Hope you all are enjoying this fine Thursday. It’s raining and possibly storming here, but you’d never know by my mood 🙂
