The Festival of Greece (but mostly their food)

Yesterday me and mom and dad went to the Greek festival! It was really fun, but if you plan to go there, go with an empty stomach, and get there early for the lamb. Why? It's mostly a festival of the foodsies you can get there!

We came at about twelve or one, and I had a very full stomach. I ate Greek pasta, Porto Rico spanakoapita (spinch pie!!!!!!!) and a great roll! Dad had a combination plate, which was... alot. Chicken lathorigano, souvlaki, pastitsio, spanakopita, rice pilaf, Greek-style peas (yuck), Greek salad, and a roll. Mom got a Gyro sandwich, which is like a cheese steak with no cheese. If only it had cheese...

After that, we went into the Greek church, and used the Greek bathroom (oh so Greek!). Then we wandered into the room with the huget mosaics. They were all over the walls, and there was a huge one on the ceiling. Then, me and mom discussed Edward Cullen. Yes, he is very Greek.

After that, we went to buy pastries. I got something that tasted like it had honey on it, and was crunchy. Mmm! Dad got something covered in almonds. I am not a nut person, although I am nuts =')

So, does this post make you want lamb? I didn't get any, because everyone ate some. Oh well, next year...

I love Greek food. But not lamb. Ew. Wish I could've been there with y'all, but I was in the Las Vegas...talking to your mom.

And don't think I didn't notice your carved tree on the sidebar. I think you misspelled "LULA." It starts with an "L," not a "K!"
