Did I say they are delicious? No?

Steamed mussels with white wine

If you’re recovering from an Easter feast, then I hope you had a great time! Our Easter celebration is taking place this coming Sunday, and this means two things:

  1. We’re going back home to Greece soon! Yesssss! (says while doing a little happy dance) 🙂
  2. There WILL be lamb. A whole lamb. On a spit. So delicious I’m drooling only thinking about it. So delicious.

Until then, fasting continues and seafood is our main guest.

Pasta with Shrimp in Tomato Sauce

Spring is heeeeeeere! And it’s warm, and sunny, and lovely here! 😀

I’m still fasting of course (commitment anyone?), and not only have I adapted to the appropriate eating guidelines (no meat, no fish, no butter, no eggs, no milk, no cheese.. phew!), but I’ve even enjoyed plenty of tasty courses and desserts!

The shrimps, the sun-dried tomatoes, the shallots.. It all gave such a wonderful taste to the spaghetti!

And very important: it was quick to prepare! Perfect for our after-work dinner 🙂
