Last weekend I acquired, inadvertently a heart shaped falafel press. Today seemed like a good day to put it to use.
There is a faint hint of Spring in the air what with randy pigeons chasing each other through the upper branches of the trees in the garden, male puffing out his chest, and tits eye up nesting places in a wall by the side of house. I even half spotted a frog in the pond.
The falafel were not quite as heart shaped as I would have liked. The shape lost something in all the hot oil but they were still very good.
