My Big Fat Greek Lunch

1. Had a little family get together.
2. Wanted to serve something different, so we thought and thought
3. Decided to have a Greek theme
3. That made it fun to plan!

The feast began with humus and pita chips.

Then came grilled Greek steak and chicken kabobs with roasted vegies

Added basmati rice and pita bread to that:

Course a Greek salad was the perfect accompaniment to that….

And we finished with Baklava!

Have you tasted Baklava? It is a rich, sweet pastry made of layers of phyllo dough filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with a honey syrup.

It is TO DIE FOR! So good in fact, that I’m going to teach you how to make it tomorrow so you can taste some too— I know, I know, you can thank me later…

So who did we invite to our Big Fat Greek Lunch?

Family!

Is that the most handsome family you’ve ever seen? AND they are nice too! (WOW, huh?)
