Our lunch consisted of a great big salad full of everything including avocado and pomegranate !

As siders we had olive oils and artichokes in fresh cretan olive oils and as main lunch we had pork steak and beef!

A lot of food with colours and tastes always that comes in great variety!

How else could we eat all these without combing them with a cold beer ? Our favourite greek beer FIX with its great history is always the best option!

Too much is never enough when it comes to greek food  and fun !

Be positive and enjoy every little thing that makes you smile and gives you energy !

Wish you a lovely happy week !

Creamy and delicious !

So when it comes to the question who likes sweet and creamy desserts ? My answer is who doesn’t !!

Today our breakfast includes homemade “rizogalo” ( ρυζόγαλο ) !!  With fresh goat cheese from cretan village !

The perfect combination for this recipe !

Slightly sweet with a lot less sugar and more milk ! Completely healthy and delicious !!

In Crete we have such a  variety of fresh products and also beautiful nature !

So we started picking up our flowers from today as 1st of May is close !

Wish you a lovely weekend !
