Healthy Eating

I apologize to my readership for not updating this as often as you - or I - would like. Rest assured, the past week has been a busy one, fraught with schoolwork, coffee-drinking, watching political demonstrations, failed attempts at attending the opera, and listening to live Greek music while stuffing myself sick with all-you-can-eat Greek food (yes, the local restaurant had a special "College Student Option" where for 10 Euros per head, the table indulges in a special form of Greek all-you-can-eat gluttony; I think I'm a late bloomer when it comes to the Freshman 15).

This post will be short, as I only have enough time to share with you my meager successes from last night. I'm a little weary of eating fast-food gyros (hurrah! the national food!), pieces of bread with scraps of meat, no-name-brand look-alike Spam, and random pieces of fruit that for some reason continuously appear in my refrigerator. So, after two weeks of being a tightwad when it comes to food, I decided to put forth the effort to download recipes, go grocery shopping, and cook something real - something actually worthy of the savory items in Paula Dean's show.

It turns out God certainly did endow me with cooking abilities that I discovered only now. No more hot pockets, no more Ramen noodles. Hello Real World! Check it out:
  • Chicken breasts stuffed with spinach and feta
  • Greek salad
  • Bread from the local bakery
  • Buttered pasta (not pictured)

    p.s. where is the 10 euro all-you-can-eat? I must fill my roommates in on this!

  3. Nice on the salad david! use plenty of dressing and after the meal dip the bread in the leftover drippings from the salad. best idea ever.
