Saturday Supper Club Goes Big Fat Greek

If I wasn't a law student, I would spend my entire day cooking, eating, and feeding people. In a way, I feel like it's my job to ensure my friends and family are fed - and fed well. And I honestly feel great joy when I see people very satisfied with a hearty and delicious home-cooked meal.
Thanks Saturday Supper Club, for bringing me such joy on a monthly basis.

Thanks for coming and filling our humble abode with great laughter and warmth. (and thank you CD, for taking all the "pre-meal" photos).
Most of all, thanks for getting excited about cooking and trying different foods. I'm convinced everyone who is capable of reading can cook. And remember, practice makes perfect!

Looking forward to January:Viva Italiano at Amy's!


Recipes for the lemon chicken and falafel to follow... soon.
