Monday night we had my cousin, Jessie and her 4 month old daughter over for dinner. First of all, her daughter is super cute and we had fun watching her go through her emotions. Second, it was really good to see Jessie as we used to see each other more often but lately it's been busy for both of us.
For dinner, I made Greek Grilled Chicken with Greek Salad and Spanikopita. I LOVE this meal! It is so light and has a lot of great veggies too.
I made a dressing of olive oil, lemon juice and zest, fresh oregano, red wine vinegar and garlic. I used 1/4 of the dressing for the marinade and reserved the rest for the salad.
Ryan grilled the chicken while I made the salad of lettuce (romaine and red leaf), cucumbers, tomatoes, kalamata olives, red onions and feta cheese. This was all served on a pita drizzed with the dressing.
I had also made spanikopita with phyllo dough, feta cheese, spinach, and onion. I rolled them up versus serving it as a "pie". Yum!
We have plenty of leftovers for lunches which I am excited about.
