Jackson Greek Fest was delicious

The Martins have been bad this weekend. First off the Greek Festival was going on this weekend. We have been every year that it has been held and a wonderful way to try new food. If you have never gone try to make a point to go next year. I don't know but the food this year was just so tasty. We did come home with a few cookies. We hate that we did not have our camera with us.
Just to make your mouth water here is what we had.
Roasted Lamb,
Dolmathes (grape leaves stuffed with ground beef, rice and herbs, topped with lemon sauce)
Spanikopita (spinach and feta puff wrapped in filo)
Moussaka (sliced eggplant topped with a meat and tomato mixture. Covered with a white sauce and baked and garnished with cheese
Greek salad
Souvlakia (pork shish-ke-bob grilled)
Tiropita (cheese feta wrapped in buttered filo)
Pastichio (pasta and meat with tomato sauce seasoned with onion,garlic,cloves, and cheese topped with white sauce.
Greek salad.
We bought a sample box of cookies with two each of Baklava, Paxmemadia (buttery almond cookie topped with apricot glaze and a cherry.... wifes favorite.)Kourabiethes (butter cookie topped with powdered sugar... reminds me of a wedding cookie.)
We wish lamb was more available as we are liking the taste of that meat more and more.
Next year we will take pictures.
