International Tour of America Part 1

Hello Castle Farm Cookbook readers! Sorry we haven't updated much lately; we've been getting ready for (and now taking) a trip!  We are on an International Tour of America.  We're driving through Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and West Virginia in search of amazing things.  Here's some we found so far...

We went to the Virginia Safari Park:

(here we are stealing some of the animals' food)

We had a wonderful breakfast at the Loveless Cafe:

and we saw Foamhenge:

and the Eiffel Tower:

It's been an exciting trip with lots of delicious food, international landmarks, and driving so far.   We'll keep you updated with a few more pictures this week and hopefully we'll be back to your regularly scheduled Castle Farm recipes shortly...

pig, out!

Once upon a time there was... Tomato and Feta Fritters

These are also called ntomatokeftedes, which is a long Greek word that means tomato fritter.  We found this recipe over at Closet Cooking, where Kevin the blogger makes all kinds of delicious and beautiful food.  We definitely recommend checking out his site.  Anyway, Greek fritters...

I was super excited about making them, Cal was less convinced.  Once we finished them, Cal loved them, too.  They definitely take a little time, and aren't great for reheating.  Perhaps these would make a better party food than weeknight dinner, but you should still make them.
