When Greg got home from fishing (with no fish, sadly) I started cooking, just like I said I would. The only exception to my original plan was that I decided to go cash in my $200 winning scratch ticket, and while I was doing that I started thinking about this awesome Greek salad a local pizza place makes. I have only had a taste of this salad, when my coworker had one for lunch. SO GOOD. So, with my loot, I went to the pizza place and ordered a salad. A small salad was enough for both of us to have some, with leftovers. Delicious, too.
First I cooked the pasta and heated the meatballs in the marinara sauce.
That is my pasta-cooking pot that I got at a yard sale back in the 90's! The meatball pot is an old dutch oven that I've had for as long as I can remember. Note the shoddy quality of the dutch oven. A new dutch oven is going on my want list. This is also the pot I cook beans in. It's a great pot, it's just worrisome how the teflon or asbestos or whatever it's coated with is scratched like that.
The na'an heated in the oven while everything else cooked. This was a multinational, fusion-type dinner with Italian, Greek and Indian cuisine all rolled into one. Take that, Alton Brown.
