We don’t eat a whole lot of packaged, processed foods around here. I mean, we’re not puritanical about it, but for the most part, I tend to feel that homemade food is tastier, more economical and healthier. Plus, I just like to cook.
At least, most of the time.
But the other night I really, really did not feel like cooking at all, so I rooted around in the pantry until I found a box of falafel mix hiding behind all the jars of dried beans and grains. I have no idea when (or why) I acquired this just-add-water boxed meal, but it saved dinner that night.
It also got me thinking about how much better a homemade version would be….
