greek food

After giving Benny a bath so that he was clean for his parents return…

It was time for lunch!

I made up another Peanut Butter & Banana Quesadilla because it was so delicious yesterday.  A spread of PB, a sliced up banana and a shake of cinnamon all grilled to perfection.

I felt like I needed something green on my plate, but all I had was frozen veggies.  So, I sauteed up some frozen brussels sprouts with salt, pepper and maple syrup.

I decided that even though I ate these, I will never buy frozen brussels sprouts again.  They defrost and get super mushy!!  Totally not worth it.  They did satisfy my ‘green’ craving though.

I also cut up some watermelon!

Mmmmm…I love spring and summer fruits!  I also love eating colorful meals.  Color means more variety which leads to more nutrients for your body!

Dinner was GREEK!  I love how simple Greek/Mediterranean food is.  We dined at Steve’s, an upscale Greek diner on Newbury St.  They have a huge variety of all of the typical Greek food, along with other things to please everyone, including burgers and fries.  We went to Greece for our honeymoon and ever since then it has been my absolute favorite.

House Red and Mythos Red.  I find that they house red at most greek places is surprisingly good!

I was craving veggies for dinner, which is why we went with Greek!  We started with the spanikopita and the village salad (which is what you will be served in Greece if you order a greek salad).  Big chunks of tomatoes, cucumbers, green pepper, red onion, kalamata olives and feta sprinkled with oregano and olive oil!  Best salad ever.  Seriously.  I ate a small piece of spinach pie and about 1/2 the salad.

For my entree, I ordered the Sampler Plate.  My favorite meal ever!  So fresh and so simple.  Hummus, Tabbouleh, Greek salad (American style), 2 veggie dolmadas (grape leaves) and a falafel.  Served with warm pita.  I could barely finish half of this!  Luckily, I took the leftovers home.

After dinner, we strolled down Newbury and popped into Tealuxe for a Royal Coconut Iced Tea (coconut pouchong green tea).

Delicious!
