The day before yesterday was a holiday called “Kathara Deftera”.
Kathara Deftera marks the beginning of Sarakostee and the end of his Apocryes.
Sarakostee is a 40-day fast, until Easter.  But nowadays Greeks only refrain from meat and milk products.
Apocryes is a festival like Halloween.
On Kathara Deftera Day, we eat lots of seafood such as squids and octopuses and we fly kites.
So I did that with my family.
We also eat a cake called Halvas.
Also, instead of ordinary bread, a special bread called Lagana is sold and everyone buys it that day.  The taste is almost the same, but a little different.  I don’t know the recipe.
It was really fun!  !!  !!


Good morning !

I ate souvlaki for the first time in a month today !!


Souvlaki is a famous Greek dish.

After choosing the meat and ingredients and wrapping them all in pitta, it becomes a souvlaki.

I often choose  beef gyros, french fries, onions, tomatoes and tzatziki sauce.

Gyros is how is the meat is cut.

Cut the meat into small pieces.

Tzatziki is made of yogurt, cucumber, olive oil and garlic.

If you come to Greece, please try it !!!
