Tasty Travels and a New CommitComplete Challenge
One of the perks of being a teacher is having the summer off. Yep, I said it. (Any teacher who doesn’t admit to this is lying.)
This summer, in addition to catching up on sleep
and sangria consumption, I am also getting the opportunity to do a good bit of traveling. Thursday night, I returned from a 10-day trip to Israel and tomorrow morning Jeremy and I are heading down to Miami to visit my parents. To top it all off, a few days after we get back from Miami, we are going to New Hampshire with Jeremy’s family. So many great things to look forward to. My suitcase is definitely getting more use than my apartment!
I will give you guys a full recap of my trip to Israel in a separate post, but for now, here is a little Middle eastern food for thought:
One of the things that I love most about traveling is trying the local cuisine. For some reason, food just helps me feel more connected to whatever place I am visiting. From a gastronomic standpoint, I can say that I feel 100% connected to Israel. Israel is one of the most vegetarian-friendly places I have ever visited. I dined on fresh hummus, pita, israeli salad, grilled veggies, and falafel for 10 days straight and never got sick of it.
Before my withdrawal symptoms kick in too strongly, I am taking precautionary measures via Pinterest; over the next hour, I will be scouting out recipes for israeli salad, falafel, and babaganoush. And by now, I bet you are getting hungry…
