My Big Fat Greek Dinner

May 13, 2010

Hello, hello! How has your afternoon been?

We had a great time with this young one:

She was a perfect angel!

For dinner tonight, Greek was on the menu.  We enjoyed a wide variety of foods!

First up: grilled veggie kebabs, seasoned with olive oil, salt + pepper, & oregano.

I also made a tzatziki-esque dipping sauce for the veggies.  In a bowl, I combined: 1 container of 2% Greek yogurt; 3 tbsp. lemon juice; 1/4 cup minced red onion; 1/4 cup chopped cucumber; 2 tbsp. mined fresh oregano; and salt + pepper to taste. Yum!

We also had pita wedges + hummus:

A great meal indeed! 

See you tomorrow, friends! I’m going to try out my new shoes for a run tomorrow morning, if all goes well!
