But this year, we only made over there for the last day: Labor Day. And we rode our bikes, to avoid the traffic, and met up with Jenn and family for a great lunch.
Stuffed Peppers. Here's a version from a previous post: click here.
Pork Souvlaki. While these look simple and unadorned - no onions or zucchini or anything threaded on that skewer with the chunks of meat - the flavor was outrageously layered. I tasted garlic, lemon, thyme, and - maybe - a glimmer of rosemary.
I couldn't decide so I opted for a combination plate with feta cheese, kalamata olives, tzatziki, pita, spankopita, and more. Here are a few hummus recipes from a previous post.
The boys didn't bother to shop around the food stalls. As soon as they saw gyros, they were sold.
And I love coffee, so we finished off the meal with a mug full of gritty, sweet, fabulous Greek coffee. It's not for the faint of heart. At the Turkish Festival they have a woman reading your coffee grinds. I wonder what these predict.
This is one of my favorite Labor Day traditions. What did you do this weekend? What did you eat?
