And than there was… stew time

It’s chilly times I’m not a political person.  In fact, I kind of dislike politics. It’s never what you want it to be. Most politicians tell you one thing and than end up doing another thing entirely. But of course I’ve been following the ever so famous US election like everyone else on the planet.

Greek salad

Every single time we go to Greece the very first meal I order is a Greek salad. There is nothing better then the taste of those gorgeous tomatoes combined with the salty feta and the juicy cucumbers.
