Greek Salad


Fresh Greek Peasant Salad

This is the salad I grew up with; it was our late night snack and early lunch.  This one has home grown tomatoes, cucumbers, and banana peppers, Kalamata olives, feta cheese crumbles, oregano, salt, pepper, chopped green onions and lots of olive oil for dipping the whole wheat bread you see served with it.

It is great with stuffed, pickled baby egg plant if you can find it, any kind of olives, yellow tomatoes, Kaseri, paremsan, Romano, or other cheese.  Sprinkle fresh basil and cilantro on it, or chop up some mild red pepper.  Stir it up so the tomato seeds blend with the olive oil and spices to make a sauce.  Make over night, chill, and add the oil later.  It is a great Thanksgiving or Christmas dish, too.  Also great with crusty, home baked bread for dipping.  My uncle lights to mix in a tsp of Ouzo in the olive oil for a kick :)

Insectiana


Look closely at how delicate I am.  I am probably a may fly, but I am as detailed as the scarabs from an Egyptian royal tomb.  No one appreciates how graceful I am, but whatever I am, I am worthy of this portrait.  Fly well and safe, these last days of summer.

The Dracula Celosia


This was the last, solitary pot at our local nursery, and I had to prop it up with a rock, and the little signs identifying flowers that I like to collect.  It is a gorgeous color, and I have high, spooky hopes for this late summer flower.
