I was completely surprised by this meal. I don’t know why, but I just didn’t have very high expectations for it. Even more surprising was how much John loved it. It’s funny how whenever I think he’s going to love something I usually just get a simple comment and a head nod. But this meal brought raves from him. Maybe he had low expectations as well. In any event, this was a fabulous dinner, full of flavor and freshness – right on the money for a warm summer evening. The whole thing came together very quickly, which was a huge bonus with two little ones running through the kitchen. I had a toddler unloading the dishwasher onto the floor and a surly five year old making various demands while I pulled this dinner together…and somehow it still turned out great.
This recipe is a mish-mash of several different recipes from across the web. I just couldn’t find a single recipe that I felt was simple enough and didn’t have a ton of ingredients that I needed to go get. In this instance the only “specialty” thing I needed to add to my list was pita bread. I can handle that. And you can too, so definitely give this one a try!
