Crockpot Gyros #Greekfood #porkloinrecipe #crockpotrecipe

Crock Pot Gyros
All the Greeks out there are cringing but if they keep reading they may save themselves some time in the kitchen. 
I can say that because I'm a Greek woman. Well half Greek. Well, actually Cyprian but you get the idea.
I buy the big boneless pork roast at Costco and divide it into 3 roasts and freeze them so I always have a roast around. For a while I was doing crock pot BBQ pulled pork but then I had this idea that worked out.
Coat your roast with a generous drizzle of olive oil. Add  a 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, onion powder and oregano. Add a whole clove of garlic or 2 and a few dashes of salt and pepper . I like to add a slice of lemon to the top. Add a cup of water to the bottom of the pan. Let it cook on low for 4-6 hrs.


When the roast is ready you'll remove it to a cutting board and use 2 forks to pull the meat apart. 


Lay out the meat on a broiler pan , top with juices from the pot and broil on high for 5-10 min., until lightly browned.


Serve with a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of oregano and and squeeze of lemon.
Tip:Take the oregano between your palms and crush it to grind it finely by hand as you dress the roast for serving. The finer oregano makes a big big difference, my sister and I both agree.






Serve inside pita breads with a tzatziki sauce, a chopped salad and a sprinkle of Feta cheese.
Stay tuned for a recipe for my tzatziki sauce.



This is a fun recipe when you have family over for the holidays or want to make a Gyro night in place of a taco night. 

Enjoy.

Have a Happy Holiday Season.

With love and gratitude,

Michele

Holiday ATC's


More artist trading cards just in time for Christmas and the Hanukkah Holiday season . I'm just posting to send some holiday cheer and hopefully inspire you to get making some of your own. 




These are from my personal stash.

🎨

Here are a few from the classes we taught at Coastal Bohemian, this month, both in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina  and Fort Walton Beach, Florida. These ladies love this class and are all sooooo talented. 









If you don't know about artist trading cards you can see and read more about them below but basically they are little mini works of art on 2.5" x 3.5" cards or card-stock. All signed and dated by you.

#Destin Lighted Boat Parade- I Manifested a Night of Magic -Christmas in Florida #DestinPartyBoatFishing

When I heard about the Destin Lighted Boat Parade in Destin Harbor, FL,  I knew we had to go. 
You see , being from Long Island NY, I always wondered why we didn't have a holiday boat regatta/parade. I mean we are a beach community, swimming with boats, Long Island. What gives?

The pics are not so great in the dark, but I want you to have a sense of the night

We headed down to the docks early enough to walk around the lighted boats and take pictures and feel merry and bright. 


We headed toward one of the big fishing party boats, all lit up for the parade. It just so happens that this is the boat, The Destiny, Jason has been following online because they always seem to have a great catch. The Capt must know his S#!t.

Aboard the Destiny

At this point the restaurants, boardwalk, bars and hotels are filling up with thousands of people. 
I told Jason, "Let's go down there and take some pictures. Maybe, they'll invite us aboard for the parade. Looks like they have plenty of room. I want to be in the boat parade," I giggled. He just laughs obligingly.

Note:Jason is an easy going, quiet kinda guy. Sometimes I wonder how he wound up with me. 

Within seconds of taking pictures with the boat, the Capt jumps onto the deck, takes a look at us and says "You are welcome to come aboard for the parade. I'm Captain Dennis. Feel free to join us, we even have some hot cocoa to keep you warm."

Insert my happy dance here. 

We jump aboard and I turn to Jason, "In my head I'm practicing my parade wave." LOL

Lesson: Move toward the things you want to happen in your life. Wholeheartedly.



The parade was a thrill and we participated wholeheartedly, by whooping and cheering and waving. The jolly crowd, responded wholeheartedly.







The parade ended with a big bang , with a tremendous display of fireworks, that we were lucky enough to see, floating upon , The Destiny, just next to the the fireworks barge. 
It's a completely different experience being up close and beneath the fireworks display. 

Thank you to Capt Dennis and his wife Donna, as well,  the mates and all those that made this such a fun evening. 

We are grateful , forever friends, of the Destiny and the Destin Princess Party Fishing Boats family.
