    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
