Tuesday, Aug 14

Greeks around the world have been celebrating the Virgin Mary for the last two weeks – and tomorrow is a big greek orthodox church holiday.  I vividly remember August 15th in greece all the summers when I was young.  The whole country shut down – OTE (the phone monopoly and only way to call the USA) would shut down – no buses or cabs were to be found – no banks or post offices were open.  We would all spend the day with family – go to church and cook delicious food to enjoy a meal after liturgy.  Typically greeks spend the first 2 weeks of august fasting and then we cook up all kinds of meat to celebrate.  Tomorrow we’re going to celebrate with meat from Murray and Esta Cohen’s farm!  come join us for a celebration feast.  Today we have some tasty treats – and plenty of vegetarian options to keep you happy!
