Snapshots From Greece

Well, not exactly. How about just from the Greek Food Festival? Where I ate myself into a food coma. You know that's when someone literally has to roll you out or when you don't eat for several days after because you're still full of food.

The spanakopita was good but not nearly as good as my sister Stacey's.
*cough cough* When are you going to give me that recipe, Stacey? Oh, are you busy? With two kids under the age of two? Who cares? You are now super mom and your sister's readers so need this recipe.

Why can't you find this beer anywhere? Don't tell me Bev-Mo, already looked.

Oh my lord of sweet honey goodness. Loukoumedes. Greek Honey Fritters... [I'm trying to sound like Homer Simpson, right now]
I'd sell my soul for these. Anybody have a recipe for this or what kind of honey to use because I have tried to make these once and they were not the same as the little sweet pillows of honey love pictured here.

Yum, they all look delicious. I wish I had greek food nearby....I have to drive an hour to get a gyro! When we drive to Vegas we stop at the Mad Greek and have a food fest.

ECM,

Bonjour from Paris.
Your Greek trip looks fantastic (ha!).
How did you do that with the cool Polaroid snapshot backround.
Love it.
Regards,
Stacey (not your sister, the other Stacey)

You have reminded me that I secretly dream of all things Greek when I'm not making biscuits. Seriously. I wish I were born Greek. Festival or not, I wanna be Greek, too.

I used to make spanakopita, man I love that! I have a recipe that came from Tarpon Springs Florida, a very Greek community. I'll try to find it & recreate it. All I remember is patience is required and pounds & pounds of butter (butter between each layer of phyllo)

YUM! Sadly, we missed our Greek Fest this year.

Meg said...

Try any tzadski (sp) dip? that makes me want to move to greece. And grape leaves. Were there grape leaves there?

Now I'm drooling.

Michele said...

Greek food is my absolute favorite! I wish we had a Greek festival here. Luckily my local diner is owned by a wonderful Greek family and they always have something traditional on the specials.

Kristin said...

I miss ethnic foods of all kinds. And am too lazy to make them myself. Boo.

Oh yum. I just went to a Greek restaurant and it was so good! Why does food have to be so good and I can't stop eating it! Arghhh!

Lisa said...

Oh, Yum!! I really enjoy Greek food festivals. Thanks for reminding me that the time is right and I need to figure out when to look for the one here. Great photos and I definitely hope your sister finds time to share her recipe soon! :-)

you might want to try thyme honey?

I loove Greek food, I would move to Greece for it if I could. There's good lebanese food in Monterrey, but not too many greek places. Most gyros are really masquerading tacos. **Sigh**

Rayrena said...

Yum, everything looks so yummy! I love the way the photos look like polaroids!

Me! said...

Giada DeLaurentiis had a recipe on Everyday Italian for some sort of fried cookie that was tossed in honey that made me drool. I can't find the recipe but when I do maybe that will be sorta close.
