Greek Gyro


You know when you eat a meal and then you can’t stop thinking about that meal until you eat it again? You know my pain then! Ever since we tried a new (at least new to us) Greek restaurant, I have been craving those delicious Mediterranean flavors. Unfortunately, said restaurant is over an hour away, so I decided to make my own and I’m happy I did!

The first time I ever had Greek food was a Gyro from the same place I got my ears pierced. Believe it or not, it was at JC Penney’s! They had a little food stand area with ice cream, big pretzels, popcorn...and Gyro’s. I tasted combinations I had never tasted before and I was immediately in love! As a teenager, I remember eating them at the mall while sitting in an orange booth while watching people go up and down the escalator. Later in life, my husband and I could never leave the Illinois State Fair without eating a Gyro (or two) from our favorite food stand. Now I don’t have to drive so far or wait for the state fair to satisfy my craving AND I can feel better about what I’m putting in my body! What's your latest food craving?
