Gulf of Amvrakia, German Beach Towels! Vonitsa and the breathtaking Spartakhori
We both felt pretty tired and a tad stressed after our week on the hard for boat jobs so went in search of solitude. Yes, even in high season it's possible here! A quick grocery run then headed to the inland lagoon of Amvrakikos Kolpos.
Not a boat insight, nothing at all but endless miles of crystal clear water and amazing scenery.
There were, however two caravans on the beach and two sun loungers. Believe it or not the caravans were German registered and I ...
Mega Marinated Pork Chop, Stuffed Courgette Rolls
Looks like a dinosaur chop, right?
So two huge chops marinated in:
Lemon juice and grated zest
A generous splash of white wine
A glug of oil (I used avocado)
Chopped herbs (I used mint, oregano and parsley)
A couple of cloves of garlic, smashed
Chops in, left for the whole day turning when I remembered..
Grilled to perfection over a high heat to brown nicely, turning half way through cooking and (please) rest for a few minutes so juices sort themselves out! Add the marinade ...

Threaded onto skewers with chunks of onion, cherry tomatoes and a few mushrooms.
Grill for roughly 20 mins, this will cook the lamb to medium.
Crunchy courgettes sprinkled ...
Lovely open pancake lunch
Left over fajitas from last night, there's no way I was throwing them away. None of us like waste do we?
A delicious healthy filling combining some of my favourite flavours, yum!
Sauté onions, bacon lardons, mushrooms, spinach, freshly ground black pepper, a grating of nutmeg in a pan. Add a spoon of cream or yoghurt if wished, I did :)
Warm the fajitas and spoon the filling over. Wipe the pan and fry two eggs. Add to the topping and dig in quick!
Fajita Night “primal style”, why not?
Do you like fajitas? Most do, I'm not such a fan as find it a bit heavy if that makes sense. Anyhow promised the Boss as he loves them and these turned out really well for a first attempt.
