Wine Juice Boxes and Falafels




Tiny boxed wine. Too cute not to buy. Thanks Target. Here's my recipe for falafels. Grind the garbanzo beans with other ingredients in a food processor. Try to form them into balls. Swear because they won't stick to themselves and refuse to form ball shapes. And, the falafel batter is totally soaking wet. Fry the falafel balls in a fry pan. Swear more because the balls fall apart in the pan and take forever to fry with lots and lots of tending. Call everyone to dinner and state loudly "You'd better enjoy these because I'm never making them again." Eat and try to figure out a way to make them that would be easier, because they taste so good.

Wine at Target? Really? I'll have to check it out, I'm loving this idea of drinking wine like a Hi-C juice box. And I'm with you on the falafel; so delicious, but a pain in the butt to make at home.

I forgot to mention that wine juice boxes are only in Target in states that sell alcohol in grocery stores. Target box wine is pretty good by the way.

I happened across the juice box wine (different brand) at the Walmart liquor store. I'm sure that other liquor stores must have them too.
