Last night I spent way too much time in the kitchen. I haven’t spent that much time making dinner since before Bella was born. T and I have been watching Alton Brown and were amazed at how easy it looked to make gyros. I guess I didn’t realize how much I have mastered making a “quick and easy” dinner. By pre-Bella standards, this was quick and easy, but by post-Bella standards, it was a gourmet meal.

We got our ground lamb at the Farmers’ Market and only had one pound, so I halved the recipe. I just made a smaller loaf and baked it in the waterbath in the oven. (A rotisserie is not a kitchen gadget I really need.) If you like gyros, I highly recommend the recipe. They turned out really good. In fact, they might just be the best gyros I’ve ever had.

We’ll see how today goes. I had feta and a healthy portion of tzatziki sauce. So far Bella seems to be handling it ok, but these days she seems to react to dairy about 24 hours afterward. I’m thinking I’ll make a dairy-free dinner for tonight and save the gyro leftovers for tomorrow just to be safe.

    I SO understand “quick and easy” pre-children and “gourmet meal” post-children.
