Shish Kebobs and Greek Pastry
I went to the Greek Festival over the weekend, and I always have a great time when I'm there. I ran into my friend, who is Greek, and talked a bit. She was one of my best friends growing up, and she helps run the festival every year. The tables were set up with blue and white checkered table cloths, and the food was amazing, as usual. When we first got there, they were preparing the meat for the hungry visitors. Along with the many dishes they served, my son enjoyed a shish kebob and a spinach and feta pastry. The view from the festival was very pretty overlooking an array of trees. We usually step inside the church, which is so beautiful. I have always loved religious Greek art. There was one particular gold hanging lantern that I admired. We brought home some dessert, and I was drooling over the powdered sugar cookies even more than the Baklava this year. What a fun day we had, and this festival is a must to attend every year. As I walked around listening to the Greek music and seeing the lively faces and atmosphere, I felt so connected with these people.......my heritage.
