I have to make this quick. It’s been a long night and I have 17 miles to run in the morning – yikes!
I have a new favorite snack – fresh popped popcorn with almonds, dried fruit, and chocolate chips. Can I get a holy yum for this one?
Derek and I headed to Tarpon Springs this evening to join his brother and his brother’s family at their favorite childhood restaurant, Mr. Souvlaki.
Tarpon Springs is such a cute little city. This was only my second time driving over since I’ve lived here, but I should really make the trip again. I would love to come in the daytime with Derek and just explore.
Our table started with the calamari
And the four of us split the greek salad for 2.
The salad was amazing, but I think a lot of that had to do with the delicious potato salad on top. This was the first time I’ve seen potato salad on top of a greek salad, but the boys informed me that all the Greek restaurants in Tarpon Springs (and about 95% of Tarpon Spring restaurants are Greek) put potato salad on their greek salads. Is this a traditional addition or just a Tarpon Springs one?

I ordered the hummus with pita
and had a bowl of the chicken lemon soup.
Per tradition, we headed to Hellas Bakery for dessert.
I love this Greek pastry shop. So many fun pastries, it’s hard to choose!
I went with the chocolate dipped baklava (yum) this time around.
Half tonight and half after those 17 miles in the morning.
ekkkk…. 17 miles! Is it just me or does that just sound like a really long way right now. At least I’ll have a buddy this time – hopefully that’ll make the miles fly faster.
