Today according to the Ortodox calander we commemorate Saint Nickolas.
He is one of the most important Saints of Greeks because He protects the sailors and our Navy :)

All the men that have the name Nickolas are celebrating this day.
For the Ortodox , name days are very important.

Dear Nicko Xronia Polla ( may you live healthy for many years)
:bounce:


I will post my little present later on for you!

Regards

Vivian

I recieved my customary call from my Father today wishing me Xronia Polla, but never expected to hear. Thank you so much. I think my father always remembers because he was in the navy so this was an important saint to remember.

Well Nicko this is my small gift.
It's just a rare recipe from a dish that people from Arcadia-Greece love to make.
You come from Arcadia, so I thought you would enjoyed to have this rare recipe.Maybe your father has heard of this dish.
I got it from my mother in law who is an excellent cook and a pure Arcadian of course :)



Lagoto (this is how the dish is called) comes form the Greek word Lagos =Hare. The original dish is hare with garlic sauce in the oven !!
I think its the best dish I have ever have although it's a bit heavy for dinner.

If you do not have hare you could use pork. It's still delicious.

Lagoto for a Happy Greek Parea of 10 people in the casserole

15 serves of pork
Olive oil
3 garlics
2 table spoon of vinegar
2 cups of tomato juice
salt-pepper
A stick of cinnamon
1 cups of chopped walnuts

1.Saute the meat with the olive oil.
2. Add the tomato juice.
3.In a blender mix the three garlics (yes!! 3 garlics) with 2 tsp of olive oil ) and the walnuts
4. When the meat is almost ready pour in your casserole the puree of garlic and stir well
5. Add the spices.

6. 5 minutes before you put your casserole off the fire add the vinegar ;)

You need to have good dry red wine to escort this delicious dish!

Enjoy

ROFL, Momoreg. That is so hilarious. I guess I should have called my neice's Greek husband to wish him well. He is another Nick - or is it too late now? Tell me, all of you Greek geniuses, what does KAO stand for? They call the sororities and fraternities the Greek system:)

...sniffle...bunny rabbits??? Shame on you, Athanaeus! Just kidding! Having had pet rabbits, I can't cook one. I used to work taking care of an Italian woman in a wheelchair. She had me cook a rabbit recipe, and I had to carry a barf bag on my arm. For weeks I had nightmares about giant rabbits standing all over my yard. This is just a personal thing with me.

HAPPY ST NICK'S DAY, NICKO!

Feliz Santo Nick!!:)

And rabbits are very good to eat!! Keeping them as pets is something that Meditteraneans generally find an eccentricity of North Americans and us Brits:p
