I will occasionally (often) shun traditional food pairings, just because of strange preferences or sometimes, the situation! I could write a whole series of posts related to today’s Daily Prompt. I will thus give an example of where a meal changed in the middle of preparation.
In 2011-2012, when I had returned from Israel, I had taken an interest in making falafel sandwiches in pitas. The first few times that I tried making it, I was using a Just-Add-Water mix that I had gotten at Jewel. The first time that I made it using this mix, it turned out pretty well. But, for the second use of it, I think I added TOO MUCH water, so that the balls ended up not forming.
Because of this, and since I didn’t want only crispy bits of falafel, I added some angel hair pasta in a pinch, as well as the Israeli salad that I had prepared, and tahini sauce.
So, yeah, my dinner was angel hair and falaFAIL bits, with tahini sauce on top, all over a bed of Israeli salad. It was too messy to attempt to stuff into a pita! Although I have never had that combination again, I actually thought it was quite tasty. But, I think that will be a one-off since it was based off a mistake.
This actually happened just about two years ago, on August 22, 2012. Those funny incidents ALWAYS make it into my journal, after all!
