Opa! Fort Myers 39th Annual Greek Festival

f

Hello Love Bugs!

Happy Oscar Sunday! I had the pleasure of attending the 39th annual Greek Festival today with my boyfriend, who just so happens to be Greek! His aunt volunteers at the festival every year and we went to visit her, walk around, and enjoy some lunch. What a lovely day it turned out to be.  Everything was perfect–the weather, the food…oh the food, and of course the Greek music! If you haven’t tried Greek food, run to your nearest Greek restaurant and order a gyro(pronounced “E-RO”) ASAP! You wont be sorry.

I have been trying to pick up some Greek lingo, and I must say my favorite word is “S ‘agapó̱” (I love you). Another thing I would like to add in here is that all of the pictures below were taken on my iPhone 5.

We started off with some Gyros, and boy are they delicious! I wanted to show you guys what a typical Gyro comes with, and then a picture of my plain Gyro since I am so gosh darn picky! Regardless of how plain my Gyro was, it was still fantastic!

Sean also got Grape Leaves! He absolutely loves the Grape Leaves. These little numbers are filled with meat and rice, lightly wrapped in…you guessed it–Grape Leaves.

If you know me at all, you know my favorite part of the day was the Dessert! I have such a sweet tooth, and lets just say it was completely satisfied today! We had Baklava, Loukoumades, and Kourabiedes!

  • Baklava: Tons of layers of filo dough filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with honey.
  • Loukoumades: Balls of dough flavored with honey and topped with Cinnamon. These are Sean’s favorite.
  • Kourabiedes: Sweet Butter Cookies topped with Powdered Sugar.

There were so many things to do and see at the Greek Festival today. Here are a couple other pictures I snapped:
