Escapism

October 24th, 2008

I woke up this morning thinking about traveling which led me to think of one of the most amazing places I’ve ever seen:

Meteora, Greece is breath-taking. All of these amazing monasteries built on sheer cliffs.

And thoughts of Greece led me to thoughts of baklava:

Anyone who knows me or has been reading here for awhile isn’t surprised that any thought I have can lead me back to food. Baklava just makes me happy. While I was in Greece, I ate baklava just about every where we stopped. I had no idea how many varieties there are – and rarely did I meet a baklava I didn’t like. And don’t get me started on the feta and olives.

Okay. We now return to the reality of this cold, rainy day in Nashville (I can’t even get the dog to go outside).

I think Sabrina is practicing to be on Top Chef.

That would be Muenster cheese layered with a chip of dried banana, raisins, and peanuts reserved for garnish. Mmm mmm good.

Reality ain’t so bad but baklava in Greece sounds like a good day too.

    I am with you on everything but the olives–ick!! It is always nice to “escape”.

    But, those girls are a pretty cute reality. Albeit Sabrina has a strange food concoction, but hey, to each his own.

    Oh, I love baklava. One of my friends is Bosnian and she makes their version…SO yummy. It’s lighter and so good. But give me good old fashioned baklava ANY day!
