It’s been a long weekend already filled with basketball and cooking large quantities of Greek food...and no I’m not Greek. Neither is The Big Guy. But he wanted this weekend’s family dinner to be Greek themed and he especially wanted our close friend’s secret family recipe for pastisio which he remembers eating as a kid. Confession: I’ve never heard of it much less eaten it. So I had no idea how it should taste but he said it was “good” which coming from him is like being awarded 4 Michelin stars.
The menu also also included oregano chicken, lemon orzo, Greek salad of course and baklava cheesecake. And some chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with strawberry meringue frosting for the kids. I’m going to pat myself on the back for this one and call it a success.
Now I’ve got a lot of painting to do so I’ll leave you with these pics and possibly post recipes later this week?! But not the pastisio, sorry, I’m not giving out anyone’s family recipes because let’s face it...they are some of the most coveted possessions we have.
