I just got back from the produce place. Capsicums were $3.99 per lb. WTF. Time to grow a garden!

Oh, I gotta have at least 1000 sq ft of garden going - what ticked me off is I want to make gyros. I need marjoram. Got 2 sets of sprouts going already but I need the spice now. It's like ten million dollars for one of those McCormick spice bottles!!!  No time to run to the ethnic stores for affordable stuff.  >:(



The moral majority, is neither.

I can get green bell peppers for cheap, but red peppers were over 3 bucks a piece.  I would like to do a roasted red pepper cream sauce with pasta next week, but my plans are flexible if these prices don't come down...

Official word on the Gyros... AWESOME!
I'm too far out from the big city to be able to get good gyros. I was up late watching Alton Brown and there's the gyros show. So I'm not claiming it to be my own, but I can vouch for it being pretty darn good. I made his tzatziki sauce too, with the mint. Not what I'm used to, but very tasty.

Oh, and for those of us who don't make our own breads daily, if you brush the pitas with oil and water and slap em on a hot skillet, they will turn out fantastic.
