Flat Bread Obssession
I can't stop pushing flat bread into my face. I don't know what it is, they are all so delicious. Last night, for dinner, I made souvlaki* with yummy souva pita bread, and on Monday I had some sort of chicken and refried bean thing inside tortillas. Having all this flat bread around is probably not a good idea. As a snacky treat late last night, I spread a tortilla with peanut butter, and chowed down on it like there was no tomorrow. I smeared garlic and yoghurt sauce all over half a piece of pita bread and pushed that in, and here is my most sinful confession: for breakfast this morning, I wrapped a piece of roti bread around some leftover macaroni and cheese bake, and stuck it in the microwave, followed by my gaping maw. That is one tasty treat for breakfast.
*Adam's Refried Souvlaki
Hack up some leftover roast lamb (however much you need to feed yourself or others in your house) and fry in a smidge of olive oil.
Make a salad of mixed leaves, lebanese cucumber, roma tomato, spanish onion, kalamata olives and small cubes of feta.
Toast pita bread in sandwich press, on lightly sprayed frypan, or in griller/oven.
Crush a clove of garlic into a small bowl of greek yoghurt.
When meat looks juicy and brown, pop it on the pita, with a squeeze of lemon and quick grind of black pepper. Drizzle some of the garlic yoghurt sauce on it, and as much or little of the salad as you see fit. Feel free to squeeze some lemon on the salad, perhaps with some olive oil if you think it needs it.
If you don't have half a leg of lamb leftover from a roast, feel free to get some lamb fillets and marinade them in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, garlic, salt and black pepper. You only need to sit them in the marinade for about 15 mins or so - the lemon will cook the lamb slightly.
