Who Love’s Turkey Baby

April 15, 2011

The kitchen smells like roasting turkey, not as much as I thought it would, but we have a couple of hours to go I’m sure it will become more torturous.

Tomorrow night is turkey, tonight it was Greece. Sarah will be going to Greece with her grandmother in a few weeks and we decided we should take her out to  try some Greek food before she goes. I consulted the Oracle at Google and she told me that the most authentic Greek Food in Saint Paul is at Christos. Having never been to Greece I will have to believe what Google says. (If it is on the internet it must be true.) Authentic or not the meal was delicious. About 73.6% of Sarah’s diet is in the form of cheese so we of course had to start with Saganaki. Saganaki is melted kasseri cheese (think string cheese made from sheep’ s milk) that they bring out to the table doused in brandy and lite on fire. It did not last long on our table. After that quick apetizer we decided on a sampling of other dishes. We tried Falafel, Pastitsio, Mousaka and Spanakopita. None of these was a huge hit with Sarah, but she did tak a small taste of the Falafel, Pastitsio (Greek Hamburger Helper with a cinnamon flavor) and Spanakopita (spinach pie). In addition to our sampling we ordered an entrée of Salmos Exohikos, which is salmon baked inside a phyllo pastry triangle. I think the salmon was Sarah’s favorite. I may have been a little too focused on seeing what Sarah liked to really enjoy myself, but the food was very good. Also our waiter was quite attentive and  tried to be helpful with suggestions when we explained the purpose of our visit.

Damn Greek Quote of the Day: Everybody should have a little Greek in them.

    I remembered “Mousaka”.
