Greek Festival

6:00 on a Saturday evening and here I am, laid up on the couch in a Greek food coma! Oh well, it was worth every bite. 

The annual Greek Festival at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church is such an amazing event.  The food is absolutely incredible, and i'm not just saying that because my handsome Greek fiance mans the souvlaki station.  If you didn't go today, not to worry!  It is still going on tomorrow so swing by for your Gyro fix and if you can't spare the time, you're in luck because this year there is even a drive thru!  

We arrived just in time for the Greek dancing (I'm taking notes before I marry the Greek guy!).

First stop, Calamari!  It was super fresh, crispy, and perfectly seasoned. 

We washed it down with a few of these Greek beers.  Refreshing and de-lish. They also have a Greek beer on draft, as well as some American favorites and even wine.

My charming fiance made me this amazing Souvlaki.  The meat was tender and super flavorful.  Why he never makes it at home is beyond me!  I'll get the recipe out of him soon though.  

Despite this being quite a hearty afternoon snack, I couldn't leave with out  my loukoumades fix!  Loukoumades are delicious, warm donuts drizzled with honey and cinnamon sugar.  

I thought I might burst after the loukoumades, but since the Greek Festival only comes once a year... there's always room for a little to-go treat!  Any pastry you can think of can be purchased individually, or in this pre-packaged variety box.  

I'm feeling full again just seeing these pictures.   Kali spera (that's Greek for good evening!).
