Addie has been studying Greece at school. After tasting some Greek food she came home one day requesting that we have a Greek dinner. It felt like it was about time to have a party anyway. So that's just what we did!
She made fliers:
We spent a lot of the day in the kitchen preparing traditional Greek foods:
The Greek goddess arrived:
There was an art show/sale before dinner:
Then we had a Greek feast with Gyros, chicken and potatoes, Spanakopita (spinach pie), Oia Greek salad, and Ambrosia salad (not exactly Greek food but otherwise known as the "food of the Gods")!
Grandma shared some photos of her trip to Greece:
We played a board game Addie created for her school project. "Beat the Gods!"
We then had a trivia quiz, "Who's the Greek Geek?"
And for dessert? Kip made baklava and Addie made a Greek orange cake. Delicious!!
These were all new recipes for me - and they turned out great! I will try to post them soon. With the Olympics coming up - it's the perfect excuse to have a Greek feast of your own!
