It’s Here…It’s Time…It’s *So* Good!! Oh, And Mules.

Today and tomorrow is the Greek Food Festival downtown Birmingham at the Holy Trinity – Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Cathedral. This is one of those must-do food festivals because it is just the very, very best…you guessed it…Greek food.

We’ll be going later to get souvlakia (lamb kebabs), pasticho / pastichio, and homemade baklava. Every bit of it is homemade – nothing brought in – and they even sell big pans of pasticho you can bring home for the freezer that will feed 9-12 people.

This is my pasticho at last year’s festival:


They have their cathedral open for people to view also – just beautiful.

This weekend is Mule Day in Winfield, Alabama. Ah, I just have to show the pic above because we gave Shug a bunch of these Schleich animals from the Feed and Seed that the McEwens have in Wilsonville (they’re the nice people that mill the organic grits and cornmeal, etc.), and I explained to Shug that donkeys especially like to be in pairs, that they would much rather be with a friend than alone. Well, he has since *always* kept donkeys and mules together when he plays with them! Such a sweet little heart he has.

Tomorrow from 10a-5p is the annual Quilt Walk in Collinsville, and the Antique and Apple Festival in Moulton (8483 Hwy 157). Hmmm…
