Who wants to do the dishes? No one! This recipe for a one pot meal Greek potato casserole will be great. Including veggies! This is a winner!
Yes, it's almost vacation! Is yours coming soon to? Or maybe you've already have holiday free time. In the Netherlands we go in three different waves on holiday time. For this year we have the very end in the South. An additional advantage (because every disadvantage has its dvantage) is that we are also very late to go back to school. And a week before we go to school here children's holiday week. Do you have one to? It's a week which is organized for the children from our village, with all sorts of fun activities. Games, building huts just a week full of fun.
This year I help organizing this holiday week, and I can assure the children will have a lot of fun. We have an activity program from early morning till late evening. And now you may be wondering why I tell you this, but in this case, the potato dish with minced really is a godsend. Few dishes to wash afterward (because in this week I almost cant lift a pan anymore in the evening) and finished quickly. And with a delicious Greek touch for the vacation accent.
It's a good taste!
