It's That Time of Year Again!
But, as usual we have the glut of courgettes, too many to eat and I must say, I do get slightly fed up with eating them every day!!
So, I took Maria, Organically Cooked advice and did some batch cooking. I made 10, yes, 10 trays of boureki.
They are then layered, courgettes and potatoes. A layer of mizithra cheese, ( feta would be easier for anyone living outside Greece, I think.)with a handful of chopped mint. Then another layer of potatoes and courgettes. Top that with a layer of sliced tomatoes. Add some stock or water, some olive oil drizzled over the top and season with salt.
Bake until the potatoes are cooked, remember to check that they don't dry up, just add some more stock when needed.
No, I'm not the next Nigella. I promise I shall not make a habit of trying to run through recipes for you.. just thought this was worth a mention. Delicious!!
Lastly,couldn't resist showing this photogragh of these 2 enjoying a day on the beach, don't they look funny!! Geoff is looking out to sea...not leering at some bikini clad floozy!
