Wrap it up… Greek Style

by zesty on July 27, 2011 · 4 comments

‘ello food lovers!  Happy Wednesday!  Ever since last week I have had Greek on my mind.  Yesterday when I left work, Mrs. Cooking called and asked what we were having for supper.  We were tight on time because Tuesday is soccer night so I made a pit stop at the grocery store and went right [...]

Happy Monday all!  As many of you know, I have been talking about completing the landscaping in the yard for some time now.  Last year we planted the grass and this year it was time to complete the look.  The million dollar question is always, “who do you hire?”  because of course Cooking cannot landscape!  [...]
