A date

We went on Valentines Day date last night! It was so fun. We were only gone for like an hour, but it is fun to be just the two of us once in a while! My handsome date:
We went to a greek place near us that we'd heard was good. We figured greek would be a good choice because there are always lots of vegetarian options. Glenn got a lamb kabob sandwich, which made me so jealous, because that is what I always get when we get greek food. He said it was amazing! I got a falafel sandwich, which was good, but I'll admit it, Glenn's looked better. This was one of the few times I've felt deprived during this vegetarian month. We also got spanikopita for our appetizer, which is phyllo dough filled with spinach and feta cheese. Delicious!

It is a pretty cool restaurant because it is attached to a greek market where they sold big jugs of olive oil, tons of different kinds of olives, and lots of other cool greek stuff. Also they had this dessert case:
Naturally, Glenn couldn't resist. He got a big square of baklava, and I got a biscotti dipped in chocolate. Yum! We brought them home and ate them sitting in our car in our parking lot and talked for a few minute before going inside.

Oh yeah, I also bought some pitas from the restaurant kitchen before we left, because they were so good! I'm always hesitant to make anything at home that we need pitas for, because it is impossible to buy good pitas at normal grocery stores! So I put them in the freezer, and next time I see a recipe for which I need pitas, I'm making it!
