Simple Greek Dinner

After spending my day stuck in a library doing extensive research I found myself driving home and not wishing to prepare anything and really just vegetating the night away. I thought about pizza--love it, but not in the mood. Thought about Thai food, but my favorite Thai Restaurant (Tamarind in La Mesa) was closed until 5pm, and then I remembered that the La Mesa Farmer's Market was open.  Ahhh, fresh food. I ended up picking up some Greek food, a loaf of ciabatta bread, tomatoes, flowers (treating myself for Valentine's Day), and a jar of pickled garlic (it's a California specialty item). So, instead of spending a ton of money or eating far more calories than I should I opted for a fresh delight.  Here's to a simple dinner--cheers! Now I am off to enjoy a movie and an early bed time.
So tonight, it's tabbouleh, purple grapes, tomatoes with a simple dill gremolata (lemon zest, olive oil, garlic, sea salt, and lemon juice), dolmas, and ciabatta bread.

My kind of food! I'm so jealous of folks who can go to a farmer's market this time of year. Here in Boston we dream of warmer weather and the start of our CSA. Enjoy!
