Gourmet Club: ABBA Style!



The menu arrived from Robin Sue about two weeks ago - and I knew right then we were in for a treat! She told us to come in proper "ABBA Attire" and as you can see by the picture - nobody had to twist our arm!



The men were very excited that chest hair finally was a plus!



Since the menu was a Greek theme - Robin Sue looked no further then Peter Minakis for all the recipes. Swing on over to his website for these delicious menu items. Pictured above was the Baked Feta. I can't think of a better way to start an ABBA inspired Gourmet Club.



After the appetizers we moved into the dining room. It was decked out in blue and white with a wonderful sunflower centerpiece.



Huge helpings of Pastitsio hit our plates as our tongues were wagging with anticiapation. The taste of this dish was to die for. The cinnamon and allspice make this taste like a delicious warm lasagna.



This picture doesn't do it justice. The whole time I was eating it - I was thinking that my kids would LOVE this in their lunch box! I will definitely be making this one again.



The meal ended with a dessert of Kataifi. I had never had this and I was blown away by this rich dessert very much like a baklava.

"When All was Said and Done" and there was no more "Honey, Honey" on our plates - We all felt like "Dancing Queens"!
Robin Sue - "Thank you for the Music" and this amazing Gourmet Club! Don't forget to swing over to Sabrina's blog as well to see how her night went!

Looks like such a great time, Rindy! I was just reading about your wonderful dinner party over at Robin Sue's blog. I was telling her how jealous I am. Greek food is my favorite. Looks like everyone had a spectacular time :)
