feeling a little {greek}

we were lucky to take an amazing trip to greece in 2009, and have so many wonderful memories of the sights, people, and food.  it was kind of our last hurrah before kids.

we ate our weight in greek salad and gyros, and it has become a go-to in our house.  i have tried to recreate a version of it at home, and tonight was pretty darn close.  it made us think of the amazing islands, whitewashed buildings and wine….ahhh, yes, the wine {as evidenced above}.

thyme chicken

  • chicken boobs – as many as you like
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt & pepper
  • leaves from 5 sprigs of thyme
  • greek seasoning {i like cavender’s}

preheat your oven to 350.  throw your chicken in a baking dish and drizzle it with evoo.  hit it with some salt and pepper and half of the thyme and some greek seasoning.  flip the chicken and do the same thing on the other side.  bake for 30 minutes.

pita bread

  • pita {i like kronos}
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt

heat a frying pan or griddle to medium on the stovetop.  drizzle a little evoo on both sides of the pita and salt on one side.  brown each side slightly.

greek salad

  • cucumber {peeled, halved, and seeds scooped out, then cut into 1/2 inch square pieces}
  • red pepper {chopped in 1/2 inch square pieces}
  • purple onion {sliced thinly}
  • tomatoes {chunked}
  • feta
  • salt & pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil

chop all your veggies and hit with a little salt and pepper and a light drizzle of evoo.  add a sprinkling of feta when you’re ready to serve.

enjoy!  preferably with white wine.  on your patio.  with thoughts of greece in your head.

also, beckett went for a walk in my wellies tonight.
