Frittata

It is amazing to me how fads come and go.

In my brief time on this earth (eye roll inserted here), eggs have gone from being an everyday breakfast staple, to a big-time no-no at any meal, to a powerhouse of nutrition.

When I was a kid, a big bowl of scrambled eggs was passed around the breakfast table. Yes, we almost always ate all three meals together, sitting at a table, with no television or telephone. Notice I said “telephone” not “phones”. And the telephone was attached to the wall by a cord. If it rang, no one wanted to even look at it because if you did, you had to get up from your chair to answer it. By the time you returned to the table, the eggs might be all gone (I grew up with brothers).

Gyro … tzatziki … words that make my mouth water. But how DO you pronounce these words?

Wait for it …

Wrong … every time!

Well, for most of us it’s true. There are American pronunciations and Greek pronunciations. After a little web-searching I have decided to pronounce gyro (when referring to the sandwich) “yee-roh” and tzatziki “sat-zee-kee”. At least I know it is close enough to be understood when I want to order the Greek god of sandwiches!
