craving: mediterranean.

good morning chickadees. my weekend was taken over by kleenex, sneezing and sleep...not fun. i missed out on some fun plans but one bright spot was a super fresh Mediterranean lunch- a pita pocket inspired by this recipe. my version was a pita stuffed full of hummus, cucumbers, tomatoes, parsley and tons of feta. now i am craving everything mediterranean! i bought the ingredients to make lemon orzo with asparagus and tomatoes and i have these on my to-make list:

  2. I always crave mediterranean -- it's so fresh and light (mostly). My fave dish is tzitzki (sp?) and I could literally eat it by the gallon (from greek islands).

  50. I was sick last week, too! No fun. All this warm midwestern weather is really amping up those pesky viruses.

    I'm going to try that lemon orzo soup this week. I love lemons and will eat them at any chance. So why not soup.

    ReplyDelete
