L’As du Fallafel

L’As du Fallafel has topped many lists as having the best falafel sandwiches in the world and a must-visit when in Paris. Who would have thought that the best falafel sandwich would be in Paris?

When you arrive to the area, you’ll be surrounded by falafel shops, but L’As du Fallafel will definitely have the longest line. Things move quickly though and the place is like a well-oiled machine. Orders are taken, falafel sandwiches are quickly put together through the assembly line, and soon you’ll have the sought after falafel sandwich, nearly overflowing with toppings and sauce.

I made the mistake of ordering two sandwiches. With so much food planned for later in the day, one would have been more than enough for the two of us to share.

This grilled cheese sandwich combines white cheddar cheese and slices of fresh tomato. The slightly cooked tomatoes give the sandwich an almost pizza-like flavor.

Sometimes the best things are the simple things. I’ve made so many grilled cheese sandwiches this year, but this one is one of my favorites. The idea actually came about because one day we came home after a weekend away with no groceries in the fridge. Mr. K was hungry and so I surveyed the contents of our kitchen and realized we had enough to make grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches, using the cheese from my cheese stash, tomatoes from the garden, and leftover bread on the counter that was starting to get stale.

Now we’ve made it several more times as I try to savor the rest of my garden tomato season. Unfortunately, it’s been really hard to do so lately because something has gotten into my garden. I actually don’t know what it is, but the sneaky creatures have been eating my tomatoes. And they seem to have an eye for the pretty ones. I’m not even kidding. They keep stealing the prettiest looking ones that I’m most excited about.

This single serving chocolate chip mug cake starts with a fluffy brown sugar cake base which is studded with chocolate chips. It tastes like a chocolate chip cookie that got turned into a cake.

Do you ever have one of those days where it just isn’t your day? And you just want to hide in bed or sit in a dark corner and wait for the day to be over so nothing else goes wrong? I had one of those days yesterday.
