i’m bringin’ it

if there is one thing i love to do…it’s cook for other people.

there is something about feeding people…that makes me insanely happy.

that’s my sex appeal 🙂
throw me in the kitchen, let me cook you a meal, flash you my smile and give you my look
and i’ve been told – you’re done
it is a powerful tool…so please be careful if i invite you over for dinner

i have only had one epic fail (as the young kids say) in my life
i do not speak of it.
if you ask me about it…i will deny, deny, deny.

anyways….

a while back i invited my crush over for a home cooked meal…
and it sealed the deal…
hook line and sinker baby.
we were together for 5 years.

go ahead and ask my ex…they will tell you it’s true.

my food is my go get ’em card…i play to win.

i have a special dinner date tonight.
dinner is in the oven.

what am i cooking you ask??

i am making my famous greek chicken and potatoes
bound to keep you glued to my hip for a life time
🙂
(ok, a little red wine helps too)

but you don’t eat potatoes i hear you say.

i know, i know…
i got me some green beans i am going to steam to have with my chicken

the potatoes are not for me…but will for certain be enjoyed.

i’ll take pictures later and post.

Happy Thursday night!!!

yummy in my greek goddess tummy

i am feeling pretty random today – beware 🙂
 
i wanna talk about yogurt.  it’s true.
 
Us Greeks love our yogurt.  we put it on everything…rice, eggplant…tzatziki hello!!
 
i remember being in my mid 20’s when someone brought it to my attention that putting yogurt on my rice was “weird”.
i think this was someone i was actually courting…seeking out as a potential mate. 
Pfft…decision made.  bye bye!
 
Seriously…it’s true.  i love yogurt on rice.  not that i eat rice anymore…but it just goes together.
that’s how this greek goddess was raised…
 
But its gotta be greek yogurt.  not any other yogurt would suffice.  I currently buy the Astro – Balkan Style (ohhhh, i just gave Astro a free shout out…any chance they will give me a free life time supply?)
 
But – and this is weird….
 
the other day…i had just washed my day right outta my hair…got in to my fat pants and was ready to call it a night…
when i got a craving.
the most unusual craving to date.
 
I raided my cupboards and realized i didn’t have the one thing i wanted.  (isn’t that always the way)
 
So it’s late at night..i am in my jammies…i throw on my shoes and head to the store.
i wanted honey and apparently i wanted it right now!!!
 
Us Greeks also eat yogurt with honey.  throw in a few walnut pieces and you have heaven in a bowl.
 
Since i have been adding the odd, good for you carb back in to my life i don’t feel so guilty about the honey.
oh honey how i have missed you.
It’s not actually sugar and it’s all natural…so i don’t feel too bad
 
But where did this craving come from?????  i kid you not when i say the last time i ever ate yogurt and honey…i was under 10 years old.
i have not had it since.
so where did this need come from??  why did i have to leave my house just to make this simple little dessert?
i mean i understand leaving the house for…oh…a peanut buster parfait
but honey and yogurt…really???
 
 
anyways that’s my story.  you should try it…seriously…it’s quite the yum yum.
 
on my way in this morning i took out my Sara CD (i know, for shame) and i threw in my Beth Hart.  Sometimes this goddess feels like listening to something angry and rough 🙂
i got a whole lot of singing and chair dancing in today folks.

it always makes me happy.
 
Have an awesome Friday!!
