Hello and happy first week of July! We took a bit of time off and it was so nice. Five full days off and we made the most of it. When we were out running errands the lunch options were a bit limited, if you want to keep it healthy.
Well, we found a Greek restaurant with very good food and healthy options. Tazikis offers a nice wine selection as well as desserts to compliment the hearty entrees. This gyro was absolutely packed with lettuce, tomatoes, grilled onions, chicken and Taziki sauce. For my side dish I chose the roasted new potatoes.
The potatoes were so good we decided we had to duplicate them at home. A few nights later we did. Well, not exactly as I think I used a bit too much in seasonings and herbs. I would cut back next time but these were just about as good as the ones at Tazikis.
What do you think? These potatoes do look like the ones at the restaurant!
Along with the potatoes we had grilled salmon with soy and sea salt, broccoli and wine. A bowl of fresh strawberries, homemade bread and ooey cheese completed the meal. I love eating at home! You get so much more bang for the buck!
This meal paired very well with a crisp Sancerre. This is a 2015 French wine with only 13% alcohol. The Claude Riffault label states only a small amount was imported. It was good and I might want to buy it again but at $26 a bottle, we may try a different one next time.
So now I'm hungry, looking at these photos again! Hope your 4th of July was good.
