After our day in the sun, followed by relaxing at the house (click for a post with a Bailey photo!), we headed out for another great meal.
We all enjoyed our fill at lunch, so we opted to share a few plates at dinner, starting with a large Greek salad.
We also ordered the hot appetizer sampler, which was a winner. I loved all the items: meatballs, dolmades (delish!), sausage (also delish!), plus…
…spanakopita and grilled veggies. The tomato (hidden in the bottom center) was the surprise star. It was juicy and so flavorful.
We also ordered a Greek entrée sampler, which came with dolmades, spanakopita, moussaka, pastichio, and gyro. The gyro was amazing and tasted great with the…
…pita and tzatziki sauce. I want to come back and get this gyro again asap!
The grilled chicken skewers were really good, too.
And the boys shared some calamari, which I didn’t try because I was so full from everything else.
Surprisingly, I was able to save enough room to have a bite of this baklava. Mmm…it was really good, and had an almost creamy (even though there is obviously not cream in baklava) texture to the bottom layers that I really enjoyed. It was also the biggest baklava I’ve ever seen at about 4-5″ long on one side!
We definitely ate well all weekend, and it was great spending so much QT with my fam.
Coming soon on TCL: I know you’re probably appled-out, but with all the apple orchards in full swing, I want to get a couple more apple recipes out. I have an easy apple dessert, plus my sis and I created a new apple muffin recipe! Recipes for the tropical oats I mentioned the other day coming soon!
Reader question: What’s your favorite Greek entrée? I’d have to say I’d pick either Greek chicken or gyro….or maybe pastichio. Too many good choices!
