Seven Days in Greece - part 2

Greece October 2011 129
Mr JK and I both LOVE food, especially Greek food, so we were looking forward to our first lunch. Tomato salad, saganaki (fried cheese) and tuna salad. No matter how many times we make tomato salad at home, (and we do make it a lot in the summer time) it never quite tastes as good as the ones we eat, sat at one of our favourite seaside tavernas. The sunshine and the view just make it one of the most delicious meals you could possibly savour.

Not to mention those kalamata olives. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Mr JK hates olives, but being a Grecophile, feels it's his duty to try one each year, just to see if his tastes have changed. They haven't (yet!), but watching him try is always amusing, as he pulls some wonderful faces! And what to wash lunch down with, but a glass of Mythos beer. The glasses are kept in the freezer, so the beer is ice cold!

Next day, we tried another favourite, a spicy sausage or loukaniki. Oh yes, and another tomato salad. I can't have enough of them!

It wouldn't be right to visit Greece without sampling a Greek salad. The feta cheese is just delicious, crumbly and a little bit salty.

Mr JK enjoyed a plate of fresh sardines one lunchtime too. Greece Oct 2011 128
I had to have a few sweet things too - I love Greek yoghurt and honey, with or without nuts!

Although I didn't eat any baklava this time, I did try a honeyed pastry one day. This one had a custard filling and was rather yummy indeed!

Amazingly, we found that we'd only put on a couple of pounds while we were away! And I hope you enjoy a little taste of Greek food, all calorie free! See you soon, for more Greek adventures! xxx

Love your photos :-)

Mmmm! Greek salads! Your photos are delicious! I'm loving your Greek hols!
Nothing at home tastes as good as Mediterranean fruit and veg. I never bother with melons or peaches at here because they can't compare to the ones we buy in France.

oooh your photos made me sooooo hungry! I am going to have to hunt down a greek tavern here - it won't be the same as sun soaked Greece with sea breeze, but hopefully it will be enough to satisfy the cravings!! :)
