OPA!

Woo, everypup and everycat. And "OPA!" It's me, Dave. Like Stormy said the other day, we had lots going on over the weekend and there's still more to tell you about! I drew KP Duty and saw Mom put together the yummiest dish. It's called "Moussaka". Mom makes her own version of her mom's recipe which is a very Americanized version of the Greek version. Woo. Anypuppy else getting a headache? Moving right along... let's have a look:

I think you can see why I was happy to pull KP Duty. There was rice and fake meat (Boca Crumbles - a soy protein product) and spices and cinnamon and onions and zucchini and a creamy, cheesy Parmesan sauce. Is your mouth watering? I didn't want to let that dish out of my sight!

How 'bout a little taste?

Mom said, "
Not for Siberians." I offered to change my name to Damianos and learn how to yell "OPA!" instead of wooing, but it was still a no-go.

Oh, it's that "raisin" thing, isn't it? OK... how about one of those cucumber spears then?

It wasn't a total blow-out, though. Mom saved us some rice. That was a double bonus for me and Zim - it was just plain rice, so the girls both spit theirs on the floor and walked away; we got to have their share, too. Ha woo. Err... I mean OPA!

Luv,
Dave (call me Damianos)

  7. Hey Damianos! I loved that first picture of you looking at the Moussaka. Nobody does those eyes like you do. OPA!

    Sorry you didn't get any! Plain rice? I'm with the girls on that one.

    Speaking of the girls, tell Ammy she is welcome to come visit us in Minniesnowda anytime she needs a hit of snow. We're welcoming!

  13. Okay... that looks DELICIOUS!

    I can see why you were just staring at it from beside the table. I'd be doing the same thing! Except I'd be hopping and balancing on two legs, because I'm not as tall as you hahaha!

  14. Thanks for posting that, Dave! I saw your mom's facebook status where she said she was cooking that and I didn't know what it was. Lucky for me, my mom doesn't like raisins, so I bet if she made it, she would leave those out and then I could eat some, right?

  22. WOO WOO Dave or Damianos!

    OPA - We think the rice sounds wonderful but what is fake meat? Mom won't tell us, she just smiles but it certainly looks wonderful to us! We don't get having to have KP Duty and not getting to taste all of the plates of food?
