Game day dips

It’s Sunday.
For some people, Sunday means church.
For others, it’s simply a day of rest.
For most men I know – it means football.

Currently, there is football on in the bedroom, football on in the living room  AND football on the two other computers in my apartment.

Me, personally, I don’t really even like football.

What I do like, and I’m sure this doesn’t come
as a shock to you, is the food associated with it.
Who doesn’t love spicy buffalo wings and cheesy chili con queso??
Oh goodness, it’s really the only reasonI get excited for football season.
*girly giggle* ūüôā

My favorite game day treat though, dip. What kind of dip, you ask.
Details. Ha. Who cares what kind of dip??!?
Give me some tortilla chips or carrot sticks and I’ll go to town.
This may or may not be a good thing – depending on the dip of course.
Here are some delectable dip recipes worthy of drooling over.

Goodness, gracious, great balls of…falafel!

You heard right. Falafel. Delicious, deep fried, middle eastern comfort food at it’s (oopsies!)¬†its best. You could call them little balls of joy if you’d like – I might start to after my dinner experience last night.

Around 10 p.m., my favorite vegetarian friend Tiffy and her lovely boyfriend Jeff popped by my apartment to join Johnny and I on a brief trip into Philly to obtain some little balls of joy (heh, you know it has a nice ring to it).  Our destination?  Maoz Vegetarian. A lovely little vegetarian restaurant with several international locations that specialize in Рyou guessed it Рfalafel!

For less than $10 a person you get a fluffy, homemade (white or whole wheat) pita filled with crispy falafel balls, hummus, and eggplant, your choice of belgian or sweet potato fries(which cost a little more but are always well worth it in my book) and a drink of your choice. My favorite part, I must say, was the toppings bar. It offered a dozen or so toppings, including: tahini, cilantro sauce, olives, beets, Israeli salad, and tabbouleh among several other tasty options.

I would definitely return to Maoz,
and I would return hungry!

falafel2 Here we have my  delicious, half eaten  sandwich. I chose to stuff  my pita with briny, green  olives, cilantro sauce,  and Israeli  salad (cucumbers,  tomatoes, and red  onion).
