After I finished manning a water station near Mile 8, Dad and I came home and tried to find a Greek dish, with plenty of protein for Paula. It was surprisingly easy. By the time we started, we were done. After peeling onions and chopping parsley, the most complicated things we had to do were find bay leaves (in the very back of the spice cabinet) and open a can of tomato paste. Then it was into the oven for dinner.
|The "Power Burner"|
Dinner was amazing. The meat fell apart on your tongue, and the walnuts added a crunch to every bite. The orzo helped to soak up the juices and one down some of the sharper flavors. I can not believe we didn't come across this recipe sooner. Not only was the food amazing, we spent maybe 10 minutes actually cooking.
