Being an unemployed bum allows me plenty of time to do things I enjoy around the home front.
The month of February I have decided to cook a different meal every day of the work week. I'm aiming for "different" and avoiding the common. Keep in mind that US 'common' meals are as varied as the entire world because we are, after all, a Nation of filthy immigrants. But yes .. there are certain distinctly "American" foods.
I have three goals:
1. Not to make the same meal twice in February.
2. Make a meal that did not originate in the US and/or not cook a US variant of a meal that originated in another country.
3. To go with fresh foods in each day's meals with an emphasis of calorie counting and portion control.
So for today I will cook the following:
Falafel ( The chick pea variety )
And for dessert;
Orange Kuglehopf cake
With that said and shopping lists in hand; I'm off to the grocery !!
