Χριστός Ανέστη!   Christos Anesti…  Christ is Risen!

Αληθώς Ανέστη!   Alithos Anesti … Truly he is!

It is still amazing to me that I am now blogging from Florida. This Easter came and went so quickly for us that I feel like we barely got to enjoy it. Let’s just say that there is a big difference in working 20 hours as opposed to 40, like in good ‘ole America! And it is funny to think that there are several things I actually miss in Greece, and that says a lot compared to when I first moved there. The grass just always seems greener I guess.

I tried to remind myself while we lived there that I should take advantage of all the extra time on my hands, and that is the main reason that I began this blog. Now, I find little extra time and even less time than I would like in the kitchen. It might just be a matter of priorities or maybe it truly is just a different lifestyle here. But here are some things I really miss about Greece: our huge house and my grand kitchen we got to stay in for 3 months prior to moving, my really wonderful friend who I had to leave behind, the local veggie/fruit stand, getting to see my in-laws, teaching English to some really great kids and a wonderful boss, and I really missed getting to celebrate Easter in Greece. There is just something more authentic about it, maybe even more mysterious. I just can’t put my finger on it quite yet.

Tsoureki candles Christos Anesti

I did make tsoureki this year and even tried a new recipe. It was not as great as I remembered it being last year and I think I am going to have to try again, but for now you can enjoy the pictures. The beautiful candles were sent to us from Greece, made by my sister-in-law herself, they are really special to us!
