Here’s a quick rundown of the most delicious food we ate and interesting places we went during this past year.
Tzatziki is a Greek yogurt sauce made with cucumber and garlic. Tzatziki is most commonly know as the sauce on Gyros, but is great for lots of other things. It's a wonderful appetizer with grilled pita and goes well with roasted or grilled chicken or lamb.
Start by washing the cucumber and grating it skin and all. You can use a food processor or a hand grater with large holes. Squeeze the grated cucumber with your hands to drain off the excess water.
Mix the cucumber, yogurt, garlic powder, olive oil, and lemon juice together. Serve cold.
This a great dish to make with a thick Greek yogurt, just make sure to get the plain version, since vanilla flavored Tzatziki would not be very tasty. A batch of Tzatziki can last for several weeks in the fridge.
The V formation itself is a thing of beauty. I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility. When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
