Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!!! Chicago is known for its crazy St. Patty’s Day celebration! On Saturday, they dyed the river green… I went down with my friend and saw it the first time… it was really, really green… here are some photos…

I recently made falafel…it turned out bright green.  That’s what I get for eyeballing the amount of cilantro and italian parsley.  Since I’m not a fan of corn beef and cabbage, it seemed fitting for St. Patty’s Day.  At least it is green! I used the following recipes for the falafel, tabbouleh, and tzatziki sauce. I baked the falafel at 350 for 20 minutes, turning them over half way through, rather than frying them. Anytime, I try to fry something, I tend to start a small fire. Plus it is healthier that way.

    Very green, but very yummy. They were also pretty good cold.

    Why can’t you live closer to me? I would eat so much better that way!

    I just discovered your blog because I kept seeing my name in the comments of other blogs *before* I had commented :) We might have to differentiate ourselves somehow – definitely not something I’m used to!

    Anyway, just added you to my reader.

    hooo… that river is amasing! Well, I don’t think I will have any chance to see a green river in person, but next SPD I definitely can make your health falafel :)

    You know, I don’t think I’ve had a Falafel before O_o I wonder if the green dye is environmentally sound…

    Your falafel from the green lagoon could be the start of a whole new trend. What a fun thing to do on St. Patrick’s Day.
