The day of the Assumption

Yesterday was the celebration of the Assumption.
So after church we gothered to eat and celebrate for my daughter's name-day.
This is my family:(from the left to the right) Alexandra(niece), Alexandra(daughter), me, mom, dad, brother-in-law, father-in-law, mother-in-law,husdand, sister, Antonia(niece) and Olga(niece). You can't see my oldest daughter because she's taking the photo.

We ate roasted lamb and potatoes, greek salad, feta cheese, tzatziki, stuffed blossoms of squashes and cheese pie. After lunch we had cheese cake and chocolate cake for dessert. The children sprayed us with water because it was blowing hot air and so we finished lunch with laughs and hapiness...

You are making me hungry with all that wonderful food. I love everything you named, but I have never had squash blossoms. They sound very interesting.
It looks like you have a wonderful large family to celebrate the imposrtant occasions of life.

Hey, we had a party yesterday too. Salmon and Pickled Herring were on the menu. It looks like you had a wonderful time!

I will try to make my Monday blog about the garden mums, just for you :) I see you asked my sister for a close up photo and do I ever have a close up photo. I think you'll laugh when you see it.

Oh, Marina! What a lovely day! I haven't heard of stuffing squash blossoms either. What do you stuff them with?

Your family is beautiful.


να χαίρεσαι την οικογένεια σου!
