Eggs, eggs and more eggs!!!
























As mentioned in my previous entry there is an abundance of staple summer vegetables at the moment.  Either at the “laiki” (farmers market) or organic home grown…  There are multitudes of recipes that one can cook at a moments notice with only a couple of other items found in the pantry.

Gemista - stuffed peppers!





I love how most Greeks here have their own vegie patch.. Rows of tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis, peppers, hot peppers, eggplants and the compulsory greek basil in their pots.. My parents are lucky enough to have wonderful friends here who set up our house before they arrive.  Tsamourias planted the veggies, Olga organized Evangeline’s bedroom and dad who arrived 2 months before we did built an outdoor kitchen, verandah and set up Evangeline’s playground.
