Munch, chat, munch, chat, make kitchen mess, munch, clean up kitchen mess, chat. The humans have been snacking all day. They never got around to playing games, or inking up all the fountain pens, or watching a movie, or reading a book to the littles. Nope, nope, nope.
Aha! This is more like it! After so much inactivity, they have energized themselves to go DO something! What will it be? A walk in the neighborhood? Gaming with friends. You’d think so, wouldn’t you? But, no!
They are going out to eat.
There is a Greek Restaurant that the Knittery Friend’s family says is pretty good. The human female, having once dated someone of an Attic persuasion, knows a thing or two about Greek cuisine, and I, being a god, have been invited to more than one banquet on Olympus, so let’s just say that judgment is being reserved…
Here’s the menu.
I find the quotes worrisome…
There appears to be a selection of appetizers.
Sigyn is not a fan of eating octopi (except the candy sort), because they are smart, so we may have to try something else.
Hmm. What to choose, what to choose? Pastitsio is nice, if done well.
I am considering ordering the Spinach, Walnut, and Raspberry salad for the human female, just so I can see her swell up and wheeze.
There’s a separate menu of specials.
I sincerely hope that “Half-baked Lemon Chicken” is a typo, or Salmonella, here we come.
The human male has ordered some fried calamari for the table.
Sigyn adores calamari. I’ve convinced her that calamari is a type of squash so she won’t feel bad about enjoying it. No one clue her in, all right?
Here is the human female’s chicken gyro. She is deducting five points for the onions being raw, rather than grilled, as advertised.
I am adding five points for the fun of watching the human female deconstruct her meal to pick them out.
The “rice casserole” side dish is simply rice and spinach with a little onion. I’m not sure I trust it.
Fortunately, it tastes better than it looks.
The Knittery Friend has ordered the stuffed grape leaves. Usually, these are dainty little morsels.
Λένε ότι όλα είναι μεγαλύτερα στο Τέξας και δεν αστείο!
The human female has hoovered all of hers, but the Knittery Friend is going home with round, green leftovers.
