Greek Easter


Yesterday the Kalakis side of the family celebrated Greek Easter. Growing up I always looked forward to the fun party at George's house including the lamb roasting on the spit in the backyard and more great greek food. I decided that I didn't want to miss out on my favorites so our little family made our own Greek Easter meal. Unfortunately we didn't get our lamb but we made the next best thing, Souvlaki and it would not be Greek Easter if you didn't have dolmothes (stuffed grape leaves) and spanicopita (spinach turnovers). We were in heaven. I even stayed up late the night before making Greek easter bread (the best sweet bread ever) so we could eat that for breakfast. It was a great day of great food. Even though we missed the party in Utah we were still able to enjoy our family tradition with great food.

Well I'm salvating now - that sounds delicious! I miss eating real Greek food. The only time I got to have it was when your mom made it. I should go visit her...
