I love Middle Eastern food, Greek food and the like. I made some taboulleh this past weekend and some chicken souvlaki. The pitas that I made are from Farmgirl Fare.

It's a quick post today because I am trying to get last minute stuff done. Run, run, run.

Lori's Lipsmacking Goodness

3/4 cup fine bulgur wheat
2 tomatoes, chopped
4 green onions, chopped
2 cups flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
juice of one lemon

Place bulgur in a bowl. Pour boiling water over it, about a cup, cover and let sit. Meanwhile combine remainder of ingredients. Combine bulgur with the rest of the salad.

Chicken Souvlaki
Lori's Lipsmacking Goodness

6 chicken thighs
olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of oregano
2 teaspoons dill
juice of one lemon
s and p

Lay the chicken out on a cookie sheet that is covered with aluminum foil. Squeeze lemon over chicken aiming to cover all of them. Spray the thighs with olive oil. Sprinkle with s and p, oregano, and dill. Let stand at room temp for 30 minutes. (If you are afraid of salmonella stick in the fridge). Roast in the oven at 375 until juic runs clear, about 45 minutes or so. Turn chicken midway.

Yup, I would definitely make that - as a matter of fact - I might even do it tonight. Greek food is talking to me lately
