Tonight at my wonderful Greek cooking class, we made the extravagant dish, Moussaka. It is layers of potato and eggplant, covered in a thick meat sauce with a wonderfully sinful milky/cheesy concoction poured right on top. It bakes in the oven and the top layer turns into a mashed potato-ey type consistency that is just delicious...arteries clogging tonight for sure.
It feels good to not be completely helpless in the kitchen anymore. Let the record show that I have made myself dinner the past 4 nights! To most, that is normal life. To me, that is something to be rather proud of. I'm perfecting my skills for an upcoming trip in just 9 days, where I have been invited to make dinner one evening. It will be fun to make dinner for two.
