Jack was home today because of parent-teacher conferences (his went great- all good things!). He had fun hanging out with Nana, then we took him to lunch to celebrate his good report. I LOVE having special time with just Jack- I know I’m completely biased, but he’s just the sweetest, easiest kid. Love, love, love. I also got to take him to his playgroup’s Halloween party while Isla napped.
Can you spy my little Captain America? These are the best kids- he’s about to age out of our early childhood PTA, and it made me tear up a little that this will be his last playgroup Halloween party. Why can’t they stay little forever? Is that too much to ask??
Tonight we tried a new local restaurant: Flaming Cheese Saganaki at Greenville & Forest. I LOVE Greek food and have been wanting to try this place since I heard about it a week or so ago.
Started with the avgolemono soup:
Perfect balance of creamy chicken + lemon. I should have gotten this and a salad… buuuuuuuuut, couldn’t resist the mezza combo:
Holy geez. Hummus, tzatziki, feta (GIANT wedge of feta), pita, kalamata olives, veggie dolmas and sausage. I ate maybe 1/4 of it and the rest is in my fridge for lunch tomorrow. Brian had the lamb shank special and really liked it, and his mom had the Olympic platter (lots of gyro meat, chicken souvlaki and sausage) and said she enjoyed it too. We shared the baklava for dessert:
Give this a try if you’re in the area!! So good- we need more restaurants like this. The employees were very sweet, too. OH and they do have a good kids menu, in case that’s one of your determining factors (like ours).
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
