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.

In any case… Continue reading “Cruise Day 7: Genoa”
