It's that time again!
My heart goes out to the church people for all their hard work, especially in today's heat. That little church basement was like one big oven today - no air conditioning, just big fans at the doors to try and move some air through. But they were all cheerful and welcomed everyone, and the bouzouki music played, and everyone left stuffed to the gunwales! Hopa!
Pastichio - Macaroni and seasoned beef, topped with bechamel sauce then baked.

Moussaka - Layers of fresh eggplant, potato and ground beef topped with bechamel sauce then baked.
Dolmades - Ground beef and rice wrapped in a grape leaf and simmered in a special broth.
Baklava! - The most famous Greek dessert, layers of flaky phyllo and chopped walnuts and spices, laced with syrup and baked.
