Greek Oven Potatoes

Something I don’t like or understand in Greece are strikes. Today is a big striking day. Almost all public services (including schools, all means of transportation, military, church officials, government offices, ect) are closed because the people want a change and striking is a desperate attempt to get some change. Unfortunately, at least from where I am standing, this is just a lose – lose situation. You see, the government has AGAIN made salary decreases. For us this means about 300 euros less each month, basically a whole month’s rent to put it into perspective. But it doesn’t stop there. We are also awaiting an emergency property “tax” that will be around 200 euros each and the worst thing of all, it makes no sense, it is simply the government reaching into our pockets yet again. And on top of that, the government is suspending 30,000 public servants, some of which may be teachers. So, people are striking, not show up for work. And if you don’t work, you don’t get paid. Unfortunately though,  the actual chances of the government changing its mind because you missed work are slim to none. A total lose – lose situation!

Potato Bread with Poppy Seeds

Do you ever have left over mashed potatoes or do you just sometimes prefer a kinda tangy bread?
Potato bread is really wonderful and really easy to make. Next time you are making mashed potatoes, throw in an extra potato or two to whip together some bread. The yeast just loves the potato starches.
This bread is phenomenal toasted too, excellent for breakfast or mid day sandwich!

Oven Potatoes or Fries

Let’s talk potatoes; specifically, oven wedges and fries.

Who doesn’t love potatoes? I do, I do, and I am betting that the indulgent side of you does too. Well, I am here to tell you that just by baking your potatoes instead of frying them, you save tons of calories and lose none of the taste. Here are two basic recipes to try, both are great. Always start with washed potatoes. 

1. Potato wedges
