I LIKE GREEK

My plenty-third birthday fell on a workday this year, so we put off going out for dinner until the weekend. Myfanwe, Norbert and I spent a very pleasant Sunday afternoon/evening at The Parthenon in Chicago's Greektown. We ate family style, and what a meal it was! We had:

Bread
Saganaki
Taramasalada
Tzatziki
Gyros
Greek salad
Dolmades
Roasted Lamb
Pastichio
Mousaka
Baklava
Galaktoburiko

I tried to take a picture of the lamb roasting on a spit in the window, but the glass reflected the flash.



After dinner we stopped by the bakery to pick up a few chocolate walnut cookies for lunches this week. (Trust me, we were all too full to even contemplate having another bite tonight!)

A day like this can really take the edge off of growing older!

I missed your birthday! Okay, being at Death's door is a pretty good excuse, as excuses go, but still...

Though somewhat belated, the felicitations are no less heartfelt.

Many Happy Returns!
