Yesterday, my husband Bill turned 51. We decided to go to Taverne Bei Dimi, the local Greek joint , for dinner. The sweet lady who is usually there was absent last night. Her brother, the chef, told us she went to Greece. I hope she’s enjoying herself, despite all the upheaval going on right now. Despite her absence, we had a good time. Though there were several people in the smoking area watching TV and gambling, we were the only ones in the dining room. Bill got a kick out of one lady’s t-shirt. It said “Math sucks”. I agree.
Local hefeweizen. One of these days, we’ll have to visit the brewery, which is near where we live. Baisinger’s Teufel (devil) Weisse is pretty decent.
We didn’t get too fancy last night. I decided to have gyros and Bill had souflaki. Both came with the cabbage salad featured below. I actually ate the tomato, which I don’t usually do because they usually disappoint me. Last night’s tomato was quite good!
A windy night in Germany…
My gyros… The fries usually come with cheese. I was glad when the chef asked if I wanted cheese last night because I’m not a big fan of it. Bill loves it, though. These gyros were very good. So were the pommes.
And so was the souflaki.
There’s no shortage of decent Greek food in our area. I can’t believe it took so long for me to discover how good it is… especially tz’atziki. We enjoyed a pre and post meal shot of ouzo, too.
I guess this isn’t a bad way to celebrate 51 years…
