chicken souvlaki +greek salad


a few years ago, we went to Athens, and even though we were only there a few days, it was one of my favorite places i've ever been. i tried to think of a good way to describe it, but all i can come up with is that it felt very alive.

in Athens, we would frequent a restaurant that we called "the Souvlaki King". I don't know if it was actually called that or if we just made it up because the real name was in Greek. anyway, the tables were all crammed together on the sidewalk and the waiters would try and get you in and out as fast as possible. you'd sit down and within 2 seconds, someone would bring a menu and take your order, than 2 seconds later, someone else would fling a plate of delicious souvlaki onto your table.

souvlaki is greek kabobs, made with meat, lemon juice, olive oil, and oregano.
this recipe is from prevention magazine. we have a lot of old issues of prevention because my mom's strategy for fitness and health is to buy a magazine or book, read it, think about the advice, and never do it. we also have a lot of unused fitness dvds and one of those big inflatable balls. (btw, she reads this blog. hi mom! love you!)
anyhoo, the recipe turned out delicious and is healthy too. we used chicken instead of pork because that's what we had.
souvlaki
served with a salad of tomato, onions, cucumber, and feta, plus whole wheat pitas and spicy hummus.

Well, all, I must testify that this is a fine meal....that Athens is the coolest hot city in the world and that
the heavy lifting of unused exercise equipment and just READING about exercise has kept me slim and trim! MMM, souvlaki!

I love souvlaki - more so with chicken. I still can't get over how much cooking you're both managing - is part of this that it's the summer?

thanks everyone!
greek food is one of my favorites too.
Jen--yes, because it is summer we can cook in a real kitchen at home and have our parents buy us good ingredients =) but we'll try to keep up the cooking once we return to the dorms.
