Go Greek

A friend of mine is a huge Greece fanatic. She loves the place, the food, the people, the language.. If she had the opportunity, she would move to Greece and spend her days roaming around the islands, go for long walks, bicycle rides, do some diving and enjoy the Greek food.

She's coming over today and we're going to have lunch together. I planned a Greek lunch for the two of us. Tzatziki, Greek Farmer's bread (home baked) sprinkled with oregano she brought me from Greece, Greek salad of lettuce, red onion, olives, hard boiled eggs. There will be a side dish of fresh green beans and tomatoes and some oven dried cherry tomatoes. Maybe some smoked salmon on the side, although I'm pretty sure that's not Greek..

In the afternoon, we're going to drive some more to visit another friend, who lives an hour and a half away. He's a very courageous man, although he is very ill. We have visited him before. Just like us, he has been "blessed" with D. All his life, he has tried to live as healthy as possible. That's why it came as a real shock to him and his beloved ones, that cancer ruined his body. He's still amongst us and we are very grateful for that. He's a terrific person and he has so much wisdom. I'm ready to go give him and his lovely wife a warm hug..
