Shopping Around The World With Chef Kali

Here it is another Shopping Around the World hosted by Piglove and Fozziemum.  This week we can make anything our little pea pickin’ hearts desire.

Kali stood up and said she wanted to be the celebrity chef from Fort Meezer, for this dish.

achefdoneHello my friends.  My dish today will be Greek Potatoes

Let’s hear it for Greek Potatoes…..*smashes plate by throwing it at the wall.* “OPA!!”  hehe  Do you know where the Greek custom of smashing glasses and plates stems from?  MOL…Stems…glasses…MOL  Opa!! *smash*Me-wow

Greek tradition has it that this practice started when a rich family invited a much poorer family to dinner and to make them feel better invited them to break the plates. They were proving that friendship is everything. And there’s no better way of proving that than dining with friends over Greek food.

Without further Αντίο ( adieu in Greek)  our main course for the day:

Kali spent the morning over at Buddy’s place, Tomcat Commentary by Tim.  They had a celebration for Kali on her 14th Gotcha Day.  I hear everything is still going strong.  We plan to go back there after this little get together for Kali.

It’s onward to Miami….it’s Florida mom.                                                           miamifli
The flight took about 2 hours and these two were planting their feet in Florida soil. Right away they learned peeps seemed crazy here. They all seemed to need a brush up on how to drive a vehicle. The first one to get a lesson would be the cab driver. After a ride that scared the cwap outta them they were at the hotel on Miami Beach. Immediately they headed for the boardwalk and then the beach.

They wanted to dip their toes in the Atlantic….the Pacific had their whole bodies but the Atlantic could have their toes only.

My good cod, you do take a lousy picture mom. MOL

After scaring small children, mom called it a day and retired to the hotel.  Dad decided to keep her company.  She may be odd but she sure isn’t boring.                                                                    skylinem Have a great weekend my friends.
