Yummy Tummy Tuesday - Falafel...(where I eat out)...

Local Falafel favs for me: Falafel Drive-In and now the newer Falafel Stop: Love falafel though the kids are not so crazy about it. So we do not go too often. 

In the past, the Drive-In has been our go-to spot for falafel and we loooove the falafels, the milk shakes and the baklava there. We love the onion rings and baba ghanouj too.… A 5* for the food..:) parking might be a problem if you go at busy times..Lots of choices on the menu, reasonable prices, assured taste, years of good food.

Now we have discovered the Falafel Stop which is conveniently located way closer ..and what is best is we love it too.. couple of points –vegetarian (they have couple of dishes with eggs), falafels are different from the regular green ones so add a variety when we eat here instead of at the drive in, wonderful salad options, great pita bread, but sadly no baklava though the cream bavaria we tried was totally yummy… all in all,a new favorite which we might up visiting now more than the drive in because of proximity.. and the prices are not bad too. The photos below are from our first stop at the Falafel Stop last week. (hot sauce, dessert, falafel salad)

For NaBloPoMo:, where the prompt for today is:
If you could be given the option to never sleep and also never be tired, would you take it if it meant you'd also never dream again?
:)nope, I love sleeping and I love my dreams (even the scary ones) though I would love to have the option to be less tired (not never tired)..

The Top Ten theme at The Broke and the Bookish this week: Top Ten Bookish Goals For 2013
  1. Work on my challenges – that covers many goals 
  2. Read to my kids more
  3. Write a short story (or more)
  4. Review more of what I read
  5. I want to re-read and review books that I have read and loved but for whatever reason did not review 
  6. Write comments on my blog/goodreads for other books I have read before but not reviewed
  7. Update my book lists – TBR/completed/others – and link to reviews wherever they are (my blog/amazon/goodreads/brazenreads) and put it up on my blog. Link on Pinterest
  8. I will not continue to read books if I find them uninteresting even after 33 pages.
  9. Leave more comments on book blogs
  10. Have fun reading and blogging and reviewing and doing all that I have stated above
For Teaser Tuesdays at Should be Reading, from White Fang by Jack London - totally enjoying his imagery -
'Half an hour passed, an hour; and nothing happened. The balls of quills might have been a stone for all it moved; the lynx might have been frozen to marble; and old One Eye might have been dead. Yet all three animals were keyed to a tenseness of living that was almost painful, and scarcely ever would it come to them to be more alive than they were then in their seeming petrifaction.'


  1. I have to remind myself all the time about your number ten....I didn't start blogging to obtain a hundred followers...I didn't start blogging to have lots of comments...I started blogging to have fun. And have fun I will in 2013.

    Here’s my Top Ten Bloggish Bookish Goals for 2013. I hope you will stop by! And Happy New Year!

  2. Having fun is so important when it comes to books and reading. A short story is among my goals, too. Happy reading.

  3. Enjoy, good teaser.


  4. It's been way too long since I read any Jack London. What a great writer. Loved that teaser!

    Here's my Teaser for this week.

  5. Interesting Tuesday Teaser! I haven't read London in awhile.

  6. I love your 33 page rule! I used to always feel that I had to finish a book once I started it, but no longer. I'm a big believer in stopping rather than continuing a book that I just don't like. Great list, and I love the teaser! I've never read Jack London, but I know I should.

  7. I love falafel. And I agree with you. Sleep is when I can re-charge. Not just from an energy standpoint. But it's the only time I am forced to be silent. At least to the outside world.

    On the inside I dream.

    I would never want to stop dreaming. No matter how disturbing or scary they may feel at times. They tell me things about myself I would never know.

    And if you find the secret on energy, please help a sister out! I am so tired. All the time.

    (I think the answer is something like - get more sleep then!) but I have too much to do.

  9. Oh, I've never heard of falafel before but I like the way it rolls on my tongue. I keep on saying it out allowed and it sounds like a combination of "fluffy" and "waffle". =))

    I'm kind of torn about the not sleeping part since I find that I always lack time but then again, I love the stasis sleep brings.

    And I love your goals! They sound so different from the usual goals :D I'd love to read a short story you've written. I think that's a fab goal!

    Thank you for visiting my TTT :D
