Ghost town adventures

Today we took off across the Palouse. Friday we pressure washed the house and we can't start priming until tomorrow.

So today we decided to check out the area we live in. We started by leaving town the one way we had never gone before, North. We went up through the town of Palouse. The town was completely closed down; the only sign of life was the one cop in town that we keep passing as we drove around exploring the neighborhood. We walked down Main Street and back and realized most of the businesses in town were only open Thursday through Saturday :)

We continued north through the Palouse and observed the many states of the harvesting of the wheat and lentil fields. We kept looking for a place to stop for lunch; but again it was Sunday and there wasn't a place in any of the little towns we went through that was open other than the churches. One of the small towns had a farmers market, which left much to be desired. However, there was one booth with only organic peaches. We bought as many as we could with the limited amount of cash we had on us. Tomorrow I will make Peach Kuchen.

By the time we cut across to Idaho and down through Potlatch we were pretty dang hungry, but still no food. No food, but still plenty flamingos and lawn ornaments. Through Moscow and home, then we were really starving.
We made falafel:
Pitas (Mediterranean Flat bread from Trader Joes if you are lucky)
Falafel (usually you can find it as a powder in the bulk section of your health food store, or boxed in the international section of the grocery store)
Fresh spinach
Plain yogurt
Garlic oil
Cucumbers, seeded and sliced thin

Make dressing by combining yogurt, dill, garlic oil, honey and cucumbers to taste.
Make the falafel, warm pitas on the skillet and combine with the rest of the ingredients.

This is easily changeable meal depending on the fresh ingredients available and individual tastes.
