Summer is here my friends. I just love it, don’t you? I am trying to be outside as much as possible and I along with my son planted also our tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. I am showing you some pictures. They are small plants but they will grow and I hope in two months we will be able to enjoy their fruits.

My son told me that, if I was going to write about our plants in this blog, I should mention that he has done all the hard work and should give him credit for this. So, I must admit that, indeed, he has planted all vegetables by himself. I only guided him how to do it and afterwards I watered them. There, I just gave him all the credit he wanted lol.

I was trying to figure out what I was going to feed my family with and I stumbled to yet another one recipe of Vangelis Driskas -a very famous Greek chef- for a Chicken cooked in goulash style infused with yogurt.

Goulash is a winter dish but the addition of yogurt in this one makes it appropriate even for warmer days. Chicken is a very versatile meat and goes perfectly with almost anything. As I expected, it was delicious and I immediately added it to my ‘favorite dishes’ file!
