    Thumbs up Re: SOTD: Sunday, 6th October, 2019

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Morning all!

    Thanks, Jon!

    Whitefluffy, l'd love to know what you think of those books if you read them.

    N.CAL, you asked about my favourite Greek food: my absolute favourite is kleftiko, a dish of slow-cooked lamb with feta cheese, potatoes, aubergine & other vegetables, which traditionally comes wrapped in paper. When it's done right, it's out of this world. We found a very traditional taverna just along the beach from where we were staying, & ate there four times during that one week. Their kleftiko was among the very best l've had, & l ate it twice there last week.
    At another restaurant in the town l had a starter that l hadn't seen on a menu before: warm, melted feta in a crispy filo pastry parcel drizzled with honey & sesame seeds. lt was honestly one of the most delicious things l've ever eaten! l love that combination of sweet & savoury.
    l have many other favourites, including tzatziki, which should be thick, creamy & contain plenty of garlic, served either with toasted pitta bread, or crusty bread sprinkled with oregano & olive oil. l adore their stuffed tomatoes, peppers & aubergines filled with rice, feta & plenty of seasoning. Cinnamon is used a lot, & gives that authentic Greek flavour.
    A favourite snack is gyros, the Greek version of kebabs, which is a pitta bread usually stuffed with chicken or pork, plus tzatziki, tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce & red onions.

    l could go on, but l'm making myself very hungry now. As for drinks, Mr teardrop loves Mythos, a Greek lager, while l usually stick to the local rose wine. Greek wines are very underrated, IMO.

    Anyway, l've just finished all of the post-holiday ironing, & we'll be going out for lunch & beer later. lt's a lovely sunny autumn day here, so l'll be wearing Chergui.

    I'm with you all the way on your food preferences.

    N.Cal, every time you wear AA, I lean my nose toward the west, and likewise when Jon wears it, I turn toward the east.

    Perfect autumn day! Will harvest green tomatoes to ripen indoors, move some firewwood, and visit the dog park -- perfect autumnal activities. Opium is lingering slightly, but will top off with Bel Ami.

    I've been drinking toasts, to Ginger B. all day, whilst getting chores done. I wonder if, as he has crossed over to other side, is he any less miserable a human being? Peter, could be rather abrasive, in his later years. Are he and Bruce, embracing, and jamming out, to tunes we shall never know? If you know the band Cream, then you know the greatness, of Gingers drumming skill and magic...

    I've never tried kleftiko before. I'll need to consider that the next I have a craving for Greek food.

    That starter must have a name? By the description that sounds rather tasty.

    From your description of tzatziki it sounds something similar to Baba ghanoush which consists of pita bread with egg plant, olive oil, tahini, and seasoning.

    Gyros are great stuff.

    Did you see any falafels or salads while you were there? I enjoy their olives particularly the Kalamata ones.

    What kind of Greek lagers are there?
