Kalimera, Kalimera everyone - its Friday . . . . and no Friday can ever be a good Friday without a proper Greek 'good morning' Kalimera! Dolmades, Spanakopita and Tzatziki - delicious flavours from the Greek Islands in the Aegean sea. Light, crisp, buttery filo, lots of spinach filling, just enough feta makes for a very tasty spanakopita meal. It would be wonderful if I could find someone Greek in my neighbourhood to quench my need for some Greek cuisine weekly. Sadly there is only a great outlet in the capital, but when I get someone going there, I order a take-out! Tzatziki on the other hand I can make myself, if I get the right yougurt. This is a Greek sauce served with grilled meats or as a dip. Tzatziki is made of strained yogurt mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, red wine vinegar, and sometimes dill. I usually make it as a dip for crisps or salty-cracks at a party or anyday next to the pool. Dolmades is my best - Dolmades refers to Greek dishes made with either cabbage or vine/grape leaves, stuffed with a delicious herb-y rice mix - this is the way I like to eat them. Well if you are not hungry yet, then I am sure you will wake up hungry after I have given you an eye-full of the tastiest food in the world. I share my photo from the beautiful Island of Mykonos which is part of the Cyclades - overlooking the Harbour and the Aegean sea out towards the Islands of Delos, Siros and Tinos - Just Magical. Kalimera Katerina - hope you are well! Happy Friday everyone - Last week-end of October and then its 2 months till the new year!

Sharks have got a life which they utilize in things better than traumatizing you all the time! I miss "thea09" only. "Katerina" was not known to me.

Dolmades is also a Turkish specialty. We occasionally get it from our Turkish neighbours. But we can also buy it in Turkish shops in Germany. Thanks to the many Turks living here there are many Turkish food shops here.

its strange how over the years the cultural barriers in all countries have expanded. We are more tolerant of each other and have found pleasure in some of the things different cultures have to offer. Food especially

I never heard of Dolmades made using cabbage, I use grape leaves. My husband likes Dolmades and tzatziki.
