    At popular request (well, 2 very nicely-phrased requests icon_wink.gif ) this is going to be beverage and seafood month.

    There were only 2 (gasp!) Greek beverage recipes in the Zaar database so I did my magical, mystical thing and concocted what I think is a very nice drink:

    Mediterranean Sunset

    In the Mediterranean spirit also are:

    Giada's Limoncello Mint Spritzers and White Wine Citrus Sangria.

    As for Greek-inspired seafood:

    Greek-Style Scampi

    Mediterranean Crab Salad

    and what about one meze recipe? I would like to dedicate the following recipe to 'she who craves all things containing feta' - none other than our own Cookgirl!

    Ev's Baked Feta

    To end everything sweetly...what about Poppy's Turkish Delight? (called 'loukouMI' here) Sounds delightful.

    Again, you don't have to make all of these - they are merely there to titillate and tease and bring out the Gorgeous Greek Goddess (from now on referred to as 'GGG') in all of you. icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    It's not even 8 am here and my mouth is watering for these choices--they all sound wonderful!

    And, amazingly, except for your baked feta, no one's reviewed any of them.

    I actually always have some version of limoncello on hand--sometimes made with lemon (duh) sometimes with orange, grapefruit, lime or combinations thereof. (There's always a jar or two to citrus rind soaking in vodka sitting on my hall closet shelf) And today the weather is supposed to be nice--perhaps I'll get an early start and have a June apertif on the roof. (Like I probably wouldn't anyway)

    Great choices, Ev!

    As numero uno GGG, I thank you. How did I miss that recipe first time around? There is a gods.
    Thank you, Ev'!

    actually, I usually look for unreviewed recipes - no reason not to get the chef some attention to a recipe. icon_lol.gif

    I literally concocted the Mediterranean Sunshine one night last week after you two had suggested going with beverages. There are only 2 Greek beverages on the Zaar database (now 3) and both had been reviewed. Despite the fact that I can no longer 'do' ouzo, I found I could 'do' it just fine in this long drink...oh the joys of fresh juice and grenadine. Also, when I added the grenadine to the OJ and it started to filter down, the colours were just like a Greek sunset - hence the name. icon_lol.gif

    The Baked Feta I added on a whim - I just know it will be something CG will appreciate. icon_lol.gif

    The crab salad sounds fabulous--and another of those recipes that's been on the site for years---I bet there are a lot of hidden treasures.
    Crab is a real splurge this year--the Chesapeake Bay problems persist, so a small harvest this summer--but I think this is worth a try.
    Do you know there is drink called Tequila Sunrise in which the grenadine is added to the top so that it has the same effect? This drink (yours) sounds much better.

    I just changed the recipe's name to Mediterranean Sunset as that's what I was thinking it looked like...I do know the Tequila Sunrise. Haven't had one in maybe 25 years - a bit too sweet for my liking - this one is just OK (in sweetness) for me.

    That is so cool - hadn't even made the connection. I wonder if I could enter it into some kind of cocktail contest? icon_wink.gif icon_lol.gif

    When I saw that salad, I knew I would have to try it. Also, the fact that it was one of Miller's recipes made it more reason to do so. icon_lol.gif

    Uhoh, sorry Veleelvyn. I think Kate's been a bad influence.

    "Velveeta". That's it!

    Isn't that what you had for breakfast yesterday?

    And as far as my spelling/typing....I only accept responsibility for cucemember. What you do to Evelyn (spelling-wise that it) is on you.

    Of course if you're cleaning while surfing, I suppose it can't be helped.
