Adventures at and after The Greek Store

I posted this in my own lj a little while ago, and since so much relates to food, I figured I'd post it here.

"I started writing this before, but my pc froze so I'm completing it now.

Yayayayay! I just got back from The Greek Store and after $109 worth of shopping, I'm feeling really good! I got everything on my list, including both kinds of cheeses, the fetta and the kasseri. They had the orzo, which wasn't on the site. I even got avgolemono, which I love! Did I mention how much I love that stuff? And I got Greek olive oil soap from Olivia and even found the Amita juices, which I've only seen in one other place online! I picked up some tzatziki rusks, premade mousaka, tiropita, galaktoboureko and of course, the Nescafe and the olive oil. We got regular for Mom and decaf for me, and Mom got me some Kalas sea salt, since I didn't have any. She also got me a little keychain with a Greek flag a man on what looks like the Parthenon (have to ask Chris about that) what she thinks is a prayer and the word Greece on it. They're like little charms that hang down from the keychain.

Well, I just had one of the three mousakas that we got. They're really small but boy oh boy are they good! There's absolutely no comparason between these and the ones at the restaurant in town! First of all, I don't think these have cheese in them, but it's not really a problem, just an observation. I ate that thing like there was no tomorrow! Then, that kasseri. Guys, um, take this as a warning! The kasseri is very! dangerous. My mouth is watering now! I had a few pieces and then had to tear myself away from it! I only bought half a lb! Stupid stupid me! Next time I'm getting more. Mmm! And that fetta is like nothing I've ever tasted in my whole life! I mean, I've had all sorts of fetta but my gods is this thing good! It's from the barrel and is imported directly from Greece. They said on the site that it was sharp, but I don't give a shit. It's goooood! And I didn't even touch the tzatziki or the galaktoboureko yet! lol The lady there was also extremely helpful and she had one of those delicious smoker's voices that some women are blessed with as they grow older. Anyway, her name is Demitra and I hope I can see her again soon. Well, I think I'm gonna try kypros.org again and then go take a shower so I can use my new soap! Awe, who am I kidding! I'm off to grab more kasseri! lol"
