Eating Like Greek Gods

This post will be short on words and big on pictures. Because when it comes to food, a picture really is worth a thousand words, and wouldn't you rather drool over a photo than my boring descriptions?!



Grilled pork and french fries. Large portions, decent enough food, but a little pricey. 

Old Ithaki | Athens


Caesar salad, drenched in dressing. A little too much dressing for my taste. The picture does not do justice to the serving size; this could've easily been split between two people as an entree or between four as a side salad.

This was a #FoodFail meal, but I'm not sure whether to blame it on my finicky then-pregnant taste buds or the cook. The rice was crunchy and underdone, and the mushroom-chicken combo was just okay.

Hello, yummy seafood! Hubby enjoyed fried octopus with a rice pilaf on our first legit meal on the island of Thira (more commonly known as Santorini).

Are you sensing a pattern of what my appetite was like during the first trimester? Light and healthy was the ticket for me, and this salad fit the bill. I mean, it's kind of hard to mess up a salad...

Genuine Greek Gelato.

Pita and tzatziki sauce.

More octopus for the hubby. Pregnant people can't have a lot of seafood, so my Greek experience was sadly lacking.

Lamb and rice pilaf delicousness for me. Two thumbs up for this meal!

A Greek salad for my last island meal.

Souvlaki, tzatziki, and fries for hubby's last meal.

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for some Greek food!

Best of Bavaria


We are currently enjoying the best of Bayern in the thousand year old city of Dinkelsb├╝hl, my husband's German home town! Be sure to follow on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter for daily photo updates while I am enjoying an otherwise "unplugged" vacation.
