    Great pics!

    I grew up in NW Indiana, the melting pot of the world. There were alot of Greeks and other nationalities that did up big time for holidays and special events. Lamb is a favorite, that is for sure. (Save the Uzo for after the meal or you will be passed out before it!)[​IMG]

    Anytime that I am back home I have to hit three or four of my favorite Greek restraunts in a week. Lemon rice soup, lamb, Spartan pork chops, Mousaka, stuffed grape leaves,Saganaki (flaming cheese if the waiter needs to be put at risk) and rice pudding for dessert. Ahhhhh. I think I feel a road trp comming on now[​IMG]

    Oh-Pah!


    That is kind of funny! And kind of sad too if I catch your drift. Wasn't far from here and too long ago that alot of trouble came down on some folks that slaughtered their own food in their own yard.

    The Greek Orthodox church near me growing up used to do similar. It was fun to go and spend time with friends of different faiths and share food.

    The community around food is is such a basic part of so many cultures. Always a nice opportunity to bring people together.

    And mix that with a little grilling or bbq. Yum :)
