experiments in cooking, travel

Back to Greece

Meals for this week will be themed and inspired by my visit to Greece

Homemade tzatziki. Who would have imagined something made from cucumbers and plain yogurt (okay: and garlic and lemon and dill, so that’s where the magic happens) could be so delicious?

It’s going to take an act of will not to lick the empty container when it’s all gone.

I’m also making… seasoned beef inspired by gyro and souvlaki flavors… and spanikopita. With Kalamata olives as a delicious garnish to it all.

Delicious, but too much food!

Now all I need is a glass of wine and good found-friends, and I’ll (almost) be back in Greece again.

Almost.

😊

There’s a Facebook meme going around. A bunch of them really. 10 things you are thankful for. 10 albums that impacted you. 10 parenting moments. 10 travel photos.

Ok so T – my friend from my Asia trip – tagged me in the travel photos challenge. 10 photos, 10 days, no explanation, tag someone else. (Yeah, my wall on FB is locked down tight and I’m not assigning homework to anyone. But if this inspires you, feel free to consider yourself challenged!

So: Day 10 of 10

Technically this is not my favorite pic from this trip, but it’ll do. 😊

This is harder than you think! So many places to choose from! So many wonderful times remembered!

So: Day 4 of 10

Ok so it turns out that I can’t not say anything. This stop on our trip was the one I was really excited for. But at our time of year, the sunset is earlier, and our landing was just as the sun was getting ready to set. By the time we raced to this end of the island, the sun was down. But our guide could get a few of us into a private little nook to get this picture.

Some of the distant lights are our cruise ship.

I had a wonderful time on this trip – and I miss my found-friends from this adventure so much! (Hi Troy and Deana! Love you guys! Connie, are you and Marge out there too? How about the rest of the gang? Christiana and Elena, we loved seeing your country in your care!)

Also… I am literally making Greek food today to go with this post. That will be a separate writing in the future.
