Bulging Greek pockets

Warm pitta bread stuffed with flash-fried lamb steaks or lamb burgers, oozing with houmous and tsatsiki, served with a crunchy carrot and peanut salad.

A kebab by any other name...

Carrot and Peanut Salad

Combine 4 grated medium size carrots with 2 tbsp red wine vinegar, 2tbsp olive or vegetable oil, a couple of drops of sesame oil and 80g peanuts.

To follow, we had sore-throat-slushy-smoothies, made by blending together some orange juice, pear juice, a squeeze of lime and a big handful of frozen strawberries.  The frozen fruit is essential for texture and temperature, but try using any combination of juice/tinned fruit/fresh fruit.

  1. You can't fool me.... You had a donner kebab, didn't you...served with a strawberry daiquiri.

  2. You were the one urging me on to get a takeaway. "I won't tell anyone" you said!
