of pizza and falafel

I made rice pizza earlier this week. It was soo easy I’m not sure why I haven’t done it before. You cook a cup of rice, mix it with basil, garlic, mozzarella, and egg, spread it on a baking sheet (i actually put it in a 9″ square pan) bake it until set — I put it in a 350° oven for a while and checked it every so often. I then flipped it out onto another baking sheet, topped what was the bottom with sauce and some more cheese and some olives and baked it until the cheese was nicely melted. E had his traditional premade cardboard rounds … I think mine was much much better.

I made falafel tonight without greatly burning anything or anyone. I didn’t take pictures as I’m not linking to my uploaded pic of the pizza not because of the flickr upgrade but because I am terrible at food photography and would probably turn you off either of these recipes. If you read the box it’s pretty much free of everything, but tasted really good. It smells quite oniony when you open the bag, but it didn’t taste bad at all. E noticed they were “different” but he ate them up quite quickly…

I’m quite frustrated right now as the gluten free mix options in most of the stores I’ve checked in the past two weeks are for sweets: cakes and cookies and things. I’ve never been a cookie eater (ask my mum). I want breads. I’ll try a few more shops tomorrow. I want more of the orgran mix so we’ll see if there is a redhook trip tomorrow or not.
