Ever since my first trip to Europe in the late 90’s, I have been in love with Greek food! We were in Amsterdam, of all places, where all we ate was Greek! ha. The feta, the olives, the spinach. I don’t know how to pronounce all the things I love, but they are so tasty. So, I’m very excited to celebrate my birthday at the local Greekfest this weekend. The food is a plenty, let me tell ya!

Besides all the food, you get to experience some of the Greek culture. Cooking instructions, music and kids from Greek school doing their dances. Scenes right out of one of my favorite movies! 

I’ll also be getting out the Halloween decorations. Fun! As you probably noticed, my web site design has changed for the season. Download my free scrapbook kit to create your own Halloween header!

Hope you all have a great weekend. Don’t forget to look for your BIG 80’s hair photos! You have until Tuesday to enter to win a Starbucks gift card.

Greek Chicken Pasta Salad

6 07 2008

I made my favorite Greek Pasta Salad for the Fourth of July. It’s really easy and a great summer dish. Some of you have had this before and asked for the recipe so here you go…



Cook 1 lb. bow tie pasta and run cold water over it to chill.

Mix in a large bowl:

• Chilled Pasta

• Tomatoes (cut large tomatoes in wedges or cut grape tomatoes in half)

• Sliced Cucumber

• Pitted Calamata Olives (whole or cut)

• Feta Cheese

• Diced Chicken (To make it easy, carve up a store bought rotisserie chicken)

Toss with Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing (I usually make my own, but this time I used store bought)

Walla! Salad done… serve cold.
