Recipe of the Week : Pita Pizzas & Greek Salad!

Artwork is partial image from My Darkness Collection (full post to follow)
Hola!  Hope everyone is fine and dandy wherever in this wonderful universe you may find yourself today.  If you are a regular reader you will know that I have mentioned a couple of times, okay a few times, that I was going to share some of my very own favorite recipes.  Remember?  Like my favorite Cuban dish of all...Pollo Enfricaz√©?   Some of you even commented that you couldn't wait for the recipe post so you can try it.  Well, this still isn't that post.

HOWEVER, I do have an idea cooking in mind.  Well, it's actually an idea that was put on the back burner and today my new friend Nadia "coincidentally" buzzed my extension and said "you know I was thinking about your blog last night and I think it's a good idea if you had a recipe-of-the-week post linking back to the source."  That's exactly what she said, to which I thought was superdeeduperdee suhweet that someone was thinking about my blog (means I must be doing something right).  So I took it as a sign to start a weekly series I will respectively name "Recipe of the Week".  Do y'all remember Nadia?  I mentioned her on a post a few weeks ago, here she is...


Yea, that's her eating.  Although she is into healthy eating, I don't quite think it was a healthy meal she was eating in this picture, but if you read the post you'll know she wasn't quite herself that day ;)  Anyway, as a token of appreciation, here is my first recipe of the week and in her honor.
