Yeah! Home just in time to enjoy Fiesta Week! It's a week of fun in our city where all the cultural clubs host lunches and dinners each night. The week begins with a parade on the Sunday and then the festivities begin. There's nothing like food cooked in mama's kitchen! The evenings also feature children and adults providing entertainment from their home country but this year we'll just be doing lunches with groups from work.
Yesterday Norma, John and I headed out for a Greek lunch. (Another advantage of John being retired is that he can pick us up at the building so that we don't have to walk to our cars a few blocks away. Oh yah...we were roughing it!)
Lunch at the Greek Pavilion was yummy! Meat stick, taztiki sauce, pita, Greek salad, some other stuff I can't remember or pronounce and baklava for dessert! Yum!!
When we got back to work our project team was having an ice cream sundae fund raiser so of course I had to buy one. Hey...there are no calories when it's for charity right?
Today we're heading to a Ukrainian pavilion for perogies, cabbage rolls and meat sticks. Tomorrow...Chow! Italian pavilion here we come!
It's a really neat week and the community really comes together to enjoy the festivities. It's not unusual for the lineups to be out the door and down the sidewalk of each pavilion just to get lunch!
Is it worth the wait! Oh yah! Fiesta!!
