This Friday my sister and I are hosting our annual girls' getaway to the cabin. Every Winter, we grab our best friends and enjoy a leisurely couple of days in the mountains. The highlight of the event is Saturday wine tasting in Murphys
. To make things more exciting, we've decided to give the whole weekend a Dionysus
theme. Naturally, I'm cooking up a mouthwatering Greek dinner. We'll start with an assortment of mezes, including Greek olives, hummus and pita chips
, meatballs with ouzo and mint, and crispy cheese-filled phyllo bites. Since the appetizers are a bit heavy, the main course will be on the light side: halibut roasted in grape leaves with a Greek country salad.
These recipes would also be wonderful at an Olympics viewing party, so check them out now, after the break.
