Wow we did something frugal and fun today! As a homeschool mom I love the educational moments that just "happen". Cooking together can be a great opportunity for home economics, a practical way to use math and science and provides some great one on one time.
Today, the girl and I made homemade pita pockets! Who knew they could be so easy, so cheap and so healthy to make. It was so cool to see them puff up right before our eyes, and we learned what worked and what didn't when it came to making the perfect pita. I see lots of homemade pita pockets in our future.
Our pita pockets were made to accompany lamb burgers with olives and homemade taziki sauce. We felt "oh so greek today", which has always been one of our favorite ancient societies to study. I'm sad I never knew, before now, how easy and frugal it could be to recreate an authentic greek meal right in our own home. I hope you will give this menu a try, it's a great way to expose your family to a different culture, and to appreciate the special art of bread making in a fun and easy way!
