Recipe: Lamb and Beef Gyros
So, I have taken on a new venture of Virtual Assisting. I've actually done it for one blogger's FB page for a few years and really enjoyed it. I've since taken on another blogger and learning even more things. I really enjoy helping these gals be even more successful and doing whatever it takes. I love researching content for their page. It's been a great deal for me. I'm working on managing my time so I can also make time for things like my own blog, reading, etc...it's easy for me to get caught up in tasks because I really enjoy what I do.
Last week my oldest daughter asked if she and her hubby could come over for lunch so we could talk about our Florida trip later this summer. I was originally going to make these Greek Chicken Sandwiches with cucumber salad. But then my girls were like "you should make gyros". Hmmmm....never done that, but I'm always up for a challenge so off to Pinterest I went to find some ideas as to how to make them. After looking through several recipes, I decided I didn't quite feel up to making the traditional version, which would be to make a loaf, bake it, thinly slice it then broil it. I don't own sharp knives and I just envisioned a mess. I decided I was going to my version of a meatball gyro. I made them a little oblong and flattened slightly (though not enough) because I felt they would fit better in the flat bread (which wasn't as big as they type they use when you buy gyros elsewhere because we couldn't fold it over itself, ate them more like tacos). BUT the flavor of everything was so good! It was a winner for sure and I'll definitely be making them again. I may work on tweaking a few things here and there and I may attempt the version that is closer to food carts, but this was an easy winner.
