Lucky us! Morocco and Greece and Eggs Benedict

We're having an eat-fest in NC this week with our friends Donna and Amanda visiting from out-of-state.

We started with braised pork tenderloin in a balsamic vinegar glaze (recipe available in our website recipes entree recipes link) with risotto and peas.

One night we had a Moroccan feast with Spanish appetizers. The appetizer was chorizo and cheese in puff pastry. We had three salads: Beet, Orange and Walnut Salad, Tomato, Onion and Preserved Lemon Salad, Couscous Salad with Tomatoes and Hot Peppers and Basteeya.

Last night was a Greek fest:
Tzatziki, Hummus, Eggplant Salad, Tapenade, Pita, Souvlaki and Spanikopita. Several of the recipes are on the website (Hummus, Tzatziki and Souvlaki) and the Dolmas recipe is this weeks recipe of the week! recipe of the week link

This morning we finished off with Eggs Benedict served with crab cakes instead of the traditional Canadian bacon to make sure they didn’t get hungry on the trip home.

On a closing note: we exercised every day, running and swimming in the pool, so eating wasn’t our only activity.

Until next time, eat well, live, love, laugh and give us a call if you need some food.
