Falafel Frida Defies Pharaoh

On the topic of falafels, my dear blogofriend Jonathan of https://bythemightymumford.wordpress.com inadvertently reminded me that I had another falafel recipe way back. I dug it out of the archive – enjoy, Beautiful People!

Sitting on his throne, the mighty and proud Pharaoh was lost in deep thought. Seven disasters, one more severe than the other, have plagued his country. Egypt was devastated.

No livestock and no crops left, the starving population is about to rebel, and here are these two guys, Moses and Aaron, threatening with yet another catastrophe – locusts! The Pharaoh’s advisers are whispering into his ears, “Your Divine Majesty Ramses, how much longer are you planning to sit here like Rodin’s Thinker? When are you going to stop swinging like a weather-wane between yes and no? Don’t you see your country is going to  a very hot place in a hand  basket? Granted, it’s always pretty hot in Egypt, and your people are expert basket weavers, but they’ve got to eat, too! Let these stiff-necked people go already!”

    1. Thank you so much, Michael. Unfortunately, we cannot enjoy this unusually hot summer because of the lockdown. Beaches and parks had reopened, and now they are closed again because the cases immediately increased, making South Florida one of the “hot spots” for Covid 19.
      I hope you and yours are well, dear friend.

    Falafel Frida – I love it! I thoroughly enjoyed my Falafel in Cairo but I suspect it may have been Fayd’s recipe…

    1. Of course falafels originated in Egypt. The rest of it is my funky irreverent imagination.
      Thank you for stopping by, dear Kerry!
