Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech Haolam, asher kidshanu b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu al n'tilat yadayim.

That really brings back memories. I lived for over a year in Israel as part of my OE (overseas experience). From the Negev desert right on the border with Jordan to central Tel Aviv I heard the blessing or grace before a meal many times. Seeing it written down really brings it all back almost as if I were there again.
I ate a lot of falafel and hummus in Israel mainly because for a few sheqels you could have a lunch or dinner that really filled you up and was always delicious. In Tel Aviv we used to eat our falafel in pita bread with generous amounts of hummus, some pretty firey whole marinated jalepenos and ice cold Maccabis.
You could make your own falafel but why bother when you can buy pots of the stuff in the supermarket and simply shape and oven bake your own falafel balls. Add to that hummus, youghurt sauce and your choice of vegetables and with pita bread or wraps you have a fantastic vegetarian meal. LaChaim.
