I have to admit, I am addicted to pretty much all the Bravo Channel shows right now. Aside from a few duds, like Shahs of Sunset and Eligible Dallas (which I watched anyway), there aren’t many shows on that channel that I don’t like. I particularly like Andy Cohen and his Watch What Happens Live after the shows. Every night, he has a ‘drinking game’ where you take a sip of your cocktail every time he says the secret word of the night. This got me thinking, reading blogs could easily turn into a drinking game. The game would be, take a sip of your drink every time you read the word “yum”.
Lately I’ve been browsing Foodgawker and just hitting the “Randomize” button to load a mix of recipes. I came across a delicious looking photo for a Chicken Gyro and knew I wanted to make this! I love tzatziki sauce and really liked this combination of the Greek seasoned chicken, tzatziki, red onions and tomato. I added the feta cheese to give it a little more depth. Since I’m trying to watch my calorie intake right now, I served this open faced and only used 1/2 of a whole wheat pita. It may not sound like a lot but this dish is really filling and I was full from this portion! I definitely recommend this. Oh, and it you’re playing the drinking game….yum yum yum!
