Hello! In case you all were wondering…”Where is lil’miss Wholesome gal??” Well if you didn’t get my Facebook update, I’ve been busy moving! Moving can really make your life even more chaotic than it already is! Okay let’s be honest…….moving is the equivalent of having to go to the dentist everyday, then once done getting a route canal, you had to pack up your Docs office and then load the boxes in your car. Yep, that sounds about right. I’ve added up the amount of times I’ve moved since I turned 18. Not even counting how many times I moved growing up as a kid – (around 11 times by the way). So I added it up – since I graduated high school, and counting this move now, I’ve moved……13 times! And I’m only 30 years old. I guess technically I’m an American gypsy. Except I don’t wear a beaded skirt around my waist or a scarf around my head. I wear pearls and Tory Burch boots:)
Right after I move all my stuff into my new place I’m going straight to Israel for 3 weeks. Yay!!! I’m super excited about going, but it is right in the middle of us moving…timing was great on that one! haha.
So I’m not doing “daily”posts for a couple of months. I really don’t have a kitchen right now, nor do I have the brain capacity to think up good articles to write. I’m all about the packn’, getting settled, finding a new job, new clients, you know…the easy things in life But don’t fret! Don’t cry! I’m still going to be doing WEEKLY posts and when I’m off in Israel, I’ll still be doing posts. And they’ll be really interesting ones, I can’t wait!
My gluten-free diet may have to go out the window (depending on what happens!) once I get to Tel Aviv, Israel. If you only knew all the wonderful bakeries that will be surrounding me, you’d go crazy too! A lot of the bread is made in old wood-fired ovens, HEAVEN!! The aroma that fills the air every morning is such a delight. So hopefully I can indulge without the horrible reactions:) But if not, whatever, I’ll be on the beach with a Vodka Limonana soaking up the rays. So you know what, I think I won’t mind missing the freshly wood-fired baked, soft, old-world style, wonderful, warm, cheese-stuffed, Za’atar spiced, olive specked, sesame seed crusted, meat-filled, types of breads………..ok crap, yes I will.
fresh flat bread
za’ atar spiced bread
cheese bourekas, a popular choice for breakfast or a snack in Israel. Can be filled with cheese, meat, or vegetables.
freshly made famous Druze pita bread, in the Druze Village high up on the slopes of Mount Carmel.
sesame crusted bread
I don’t know how this turned into a post about bread in Israel…but whatever! All I wanted to do was just tell all my beloved readers that I won’t be posting daily, but weekly cause I’m wicked busy moving, and that somehow turned into a bread fest!
