The new kits for Seattle Reign’s 2015 NWSL season were released. Two new kits called for two new players so I added Keelin Winters and Kim Little to the new poster.

To go along with the rest of the new additions I updated Hope’s gloves to be actual gloves. It seemed wrong to fudge on details for a position that doesn’t fudge on details. I also updated the background. A sorta looming vikings-in-the-rain look.

*Once there the download button is on the right. Just print it “to size” onto card stock of your choice and trim it out. I’d suggest a metal ruler with an x-acto knife if you want the full bleed to the edge when you’re done.

Print, take it to a game, get it signed. 🙂

Falafels. Fala-la-la-la-fels.

I’ve been craving falafels lately. I haven’t had any since this whole celiac fun started, but I found an easy recipe that I could use a smidgen of potato starch with and it worked. Mostly.

It didn’t take a lot of ingredients: chickpeas, garlic, onion, parsley, starch of choice, sea salt, cumin, coriander, black pepper, and grape seed oil.

My big problem came from substituting canned/drained chickpeas instead of dried ones that had been soaked. I think my canned version had too much moisture in them so when I tried to fry them the patty disintegrated into the oil. Yuck. With the remaining batter I made the patties, rubbed them with the grape seed oil, and baked them on a sheet at 400 for 30 minutes with a flip in the middle. Came out great. So my suggestion is that if you used canned you bake them. Resuscitated dry chickpeas you can fry.

My secondary problem was the saltiness. I’ll use half the salt than they suggested next time. Maybe that’s just my celiac influenced taste-buds at work, but you might consider that.
