I would like to welcome you to my blog. Many people are struggling and deciding which expenses they can pay and which will have to wait. Many times there is little, if anything, left to buy food. I would like to offer these families some hope and knowledge on how to feed their families a healthy meal in these difficult times.

I prepared a dish last night that got me doing a little research. I found that it is a Greek dish with Middle Eastern roots. It is a layered dish traditionally made with eggplant and lamb topped with a Bechamel sauce. It has variations using zucchini, potatoes and sauteed mushrooms.

Greek Cuisine dates back some 4000 years. With the first cookbook being written by the ancient Greek poet Archestratus sometime in the mid 4th century B.C. It is a cuisine that is known for its frugality with wine and olive oil being at the center of it and fish being the most common source of protein. The most common ingredients in Greek cuisine are wheat, barley, tomatoes, eggplant, potatoes, green beans, okra, onions, garlic, thyme, oregano, mint, dill, bay leaves, cinnamon, cloves, citrus, honey, nuts, and various cheeses with meats consisting of fish, goat and sheep.
