I decided (wisely?? foolishly??) to redo the website format of mostly-greek.com. So what that really means is that I just finished sitting on my behind for seven hours rearranging almost EVERYTHING here. However, I think this new format is far better both for the visitor as well as myself. I hope you agree!
I had an “embarrassment of riches” situation. Thanks to a deal at Costco and a generous neighbor, I had a bunch of wild salmon (no complaints). I also had a ton of pesto due to a prolific planting of basil (also no complaints).
It’s easy to get into a rut with something like breakfast. It’s early, the caffeine from your coffee hasn’t kicked in. Your family hasn’t had a meal in a while. It’s not a good start.
Who picked a peck of pickled peppers? I did! Except I honestly don’t know how much a peck is. I think it might be a lot.
Earlier this spring, the Old Man and I went to a concert at a local theater. The band was Neil Young with Crazy Horse, the theater was a historic building from the late 1930s.
If the original creator of pesto was still alive, it would be on my bucket list to find them and give them a long, garlicky kiss of thanks. I owe the quality of my gastronomic life to that person.
How far back into your childhood can you remember something from? Real memories, not just recreations of stories you have heard from others. It’s tricky to know for sure, isn’t it?
When I’m entertaining I want appetizers that can be made in advance and pack a lot of flavor. Chips and dip just doesn’t cut it. This spread does.
Ah summer, I don’t quite know what to do with you. You’re hot and sweltering and uncomfortable. Yet I love what you give me. I guess I’ll keep you for now.
