Is it me or has this been the crapiest Spring in Melbourne for years! Where is the sunshine? The only good thing is that I don't feel out of place cooking "winter" comfort food.. The ultimate in greek cuisine is pastitsio. Very Italian sounding dish, because it is. Probably from the time of the Venetian occupation.. One positive aspect that came out of all these countries (Bulgaria, Venice, Turkey... the list goes on...) wanting to claim Ellada as their own is the fusion of recipes....

I love how most Greeks here have their own vegie patch.. Rows of tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis, peppers, hot peppers, eggplants and the compulsory greek basil in their pots.. My parents are lucky enough to have wonderful friends here who set up our house before they arrive. Tsamourias planted the veggies, Olga organized Evangeline’s bedroom and dad who arrived 2 months before we did built an outdoor kitchen, verandah and set up Evangeline’s playground.

We woke up to sunny Alexandroupolis, after our 3 day trip to the Black Sea in Bulgaria, this morning….We had some breakfast, I’ve done a bit of housework and now I’m ready to make lunch to send off with my dad so he can enjoy with his mates on the beach…

This happens to be my stepdaughters favourite greek dish next to bougatsa... I made sure to make it for them before they went on their European trip with their mum. Kate who doesn't eat much, except for when chocolate is involved, had two bowls...so I was one very happy camper!! Evangeline and I won't see them again till mid September..They get back 2 days after we go to Greece for 9 weeks. Must learn to use Skype!!!
