Good day to you my galley friends.  Following a recent guest from away visit, I have a very tasty meal for you.  Full of Greek-inspired flavours, super easy to throw together, it was the perfect hot summer time dish to offer our friends.

Couscous is handy to have on hand because all it needs is boiling water or broth, five minutes of wait time, some seasoning and fluff of a fork and it’s ready as a base for a light meal.

Fresh veggies tossed in a light vinaigrette with some sautéd ground lamb and a sprinkling of feta and dinner is ready.  I served it with some freshly made pita for those bread lovers.
