GLAM mascara winner + Falafel meal for 1

Posted Oct 05 2009 10:03pm

Hi guys!!  I don’t think i’ve ever been so excited for mascara.

I swear I should email Rimmel for a free sample or something :P

Today was such a long day, as Mondays tend to be!  I taught all day and then coached the girls netball team after work for an hour.  I find coaching to be so hard to get motivated for on a Monday but we did it and had some fun! An hour goes by quickly anyways!

I have a lot of tahini (or shall I say tahinah) on my hands….


It was the perfect timing for the tahini recipes that Heather posted as she was doing a weeks worth of fun meals that incorporated it!  I’m dying to try the salmon (and meatloaf for that matter!) but tonight as I was just cooking for myself I decided to try the Chickpea and Vegetable Falafel bread recipe that she found on Meghan’s blog “ Making Love in the Kitchen ”  – how cool is that blog name by the way?

I made them into falafel balls, perfect for topping salads or eating alone- whatever you prefer!


I used tahini instead of the olive oil (as suggested) and organic plain flour.  I also didn’t have enough lemon juice so I substituted water instead and I used chopped green pepper and chopped onion for the vegetables.  Then I garnished them with paprika before going into the oven!


The recipe makes quite a bit, so even though the title of this post is “Falafel meal for 1” there are definitely leftovers!  I had 3 falafel balls for dinner tonight on top of my salad, and have 6 leftover for leftover meals.

Out of the oven…


And on to my salad!


The salad also had lettuce greens (incl spinach, cuc, tomato and diced cheese – all drizzled with a bit of evoo and balsamic vinegar).

The chickpea falafel balls were perfect.  Nice and crispy on the outside.  Steve even loved them, who was sitting next to me eating a bacon and chicken sandwich (aka chicken club) and french fries :)

Make these tonight!!!

Ok ok … enough dinner talk huh?  On to the winner of last weeks contest!

There were 69 replies in the post, but one was my own replying to a comment so I put the numbers 1 – 68 in to the random number generator.


The winner is…

I adore mascara, but I simply must have a base foundation to smooth out skin!

CONGRATS Lisa!  Email me and I’ll post the prize to you asap!

Thanks everyone for entering!  This was fun.


Well, the Husband and his friend are currently watching the Villa football game (Steve is yelling at the TV in excitement!), and I’ve got a little ANTM to watch!  See you tomorrow for a post on what i’ve recently (as of today) diagnosed myself with.
