In 1982 I traveled to Greece with my youngest son who was 15 at the time. We only stayed in Athens for a bit before either taking a bus or a train to different towns. It was quite the experience and we immediately discovered the delicious local cuisine! Our favorite lunch was a baguette with sliced tomatoes and tzatziki and our favorite place was the island of Hydra !
It was quite the adventure! After exploring Greece for 2 weeks we then went on to Egypt....but that is another story!
Greek Tzatziki recipe
2 cloves garlic, 1 medium cucumber, 1 cup plain Greek yogurt,1Tbl lemon juice,1Tbl olive oil, 1 Tbl dill seed and pepper. Mash garlic, peel cucumber and scrape out seeds by cutting in half length wise, scooping out with a spoon and then mince finely or use a cheese grater. Mix with garlic and then add the remaining ingredients. Stir well and then chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. This will keep well for quite a few days. Enjoy!

My computer was in the Geek's workshop most of last week. Nothing serious, just time to be fluffed and buffed! While I patiently waited I kept busy by cooking meals I had not made for quite awhile. To say the least Russell was smiling.
