Greek food, drink, and finally a Papadopolous

The Papa is just for Joanna

Ok, so I haven't been too adventurous yet but today I was really proud of myself. I went to the bakery and ordered tiropita using my Greek ordering skills. Yasus! Mia tiropita parakalo! Hello! One cheese pie please. And what a cheese pie it was. I think tiropita just became a favorite. Tender phyllo pastry browned just enough and filled with a wonderful cheese filling. It was my dinner. All for a mere 1,20 euro. Doesn't it look like you could just eat it all up? I did. Tiropita and peach juice.

But wait. Before that I imbibed in a traditional Greek drink called tsipouro. Tsipouro is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from grapes. It is 45% alcohol by volume. Clear as a bell and strikes like lightening when going down. Not sure I can describe it other than drinking lighter fluid, maybe. If you want to clear a chest cold or a head cold, down some Tsipouro. I did. Of course now I have a headache and probably smell like a lush.

Finally, Joanna, I found a Pappadopolous! Just for you. I just happened to be standing there at my kitchen window and I noticed Pappadopolous. Across the room. Calling my name. He's very sweet I can tell you. I'm thinking of bringing him back to you. You'd like him for sure. At night, with tea. *wink*
