There’s Another Thing I Have To Tell You

Are you familiar with falafel?  They’re fried chick pea balls typically *stuffed* into pita. Garnished with chopped tomatoes and cucumbers and then *swathed* with hummus and tahina. It’s tasty but it’s a mess to eat.

The minute you take a bite the hummus *gushes* out. That’s when you start licking your fingers because hummus is sticky and pasty.  I  always plan ahead and never wear a white shirt if I’m going to have a felafel.  You can never be too careful.

Do you have a soft, extra large kitchen towel or an old tablecloth? Good.  Now buy a pair of baby bib clips (I recommend Kipiis) to attach to the towel or tablecloth so it covers you from your neck to your knees. *Drizzle* and *swath* your felafel sandwich with spicy harissa hot sauce to your heart’s content.

Bon appetit. Ignore all stares.
