Scones with a greek twist!!!




Another miserable, miserable day and only 2 weeks or so till Summer!!!  Trying to keep a two year old entertained indoors for hours on end is a bit difficult..  Sure I have the T.V. on all day (bad mum!) but I have put on the Greek cartoon DVDs so at least it’s educational.

Pastitsio - Greek meat sauce and pasta bake



Is it me or has this been the crapiest Spring in Melbourne for years!  Where is the sunshine?  The only good thing is that I don't feel out of place cooking "winter" comfort food..  The ultimate in greek cuisine is pastitsio.  Very Italian sounding dish, because it is.  Probably from the time of the Venetian occupation..  One positive aspect  that came out of all these countries (Bulgaria, Venice, Turkey... the list goes on...) wanting to claim Ellada as their own is the fusion of recipes....
