Our 1st dinner party aka Greekfest was a delicious success! All the food was amazing! Greek foods may just be my favorites...besides mashed potatoes.
We dined on Greek salad,
Falafel, tabouli, and the most amazing Greek yogurt cucumber sauce made by Carissa (not me- V.1.0)
Lemon roasted Greek potatoes. They were great and I will be making them on many more dinner party occassions. I marinated the potatoes before with chicken broth, lemon, EVOO, and oregano. They were then roasted with fresh rosemary for about an hour at 425.
We also had grilled chicken and steak. I had chicken which in on the left side of my plate. I don't think I ate my pita wedges, but I went back for more falafel and yogurt sauce.

She made revani which I think is Turkish. It was a deliciously moist cake drizzled with a simple syrup with lemon. But she didn't stop there- she made homemade cinnamon whipped cream and brought fresh pisatchios for the top! Talk about somebody who needs a food blog!
It was so good that we all enjoyed 2 pieces!
We attempted to play Cranium, however the girls were beating the boys so badly that they gave in halfway through....because they hadn't moved off start! :)
It was a wonderful night and a great inaugural dinner for our new table!
Who's next to "be our guest"?
Love and good times,
Carissa & Kyle
