We spent last weekend at one of my favorite places in the world (not that I have traveled the world over, but even if I had, I think this would still be my favorite place because this is where I grew up)…Lake Tahoe. It was kind of spur of the moment, but the weather had been so nice and it was supposed to remain nice, so I talked Yes!Chef! into going there for a couple of days. We are most lucky to live about one hour from Lake Tahoe and, even luckier, we are blessed to have a cabin up there that my family has owned for a very long time.
I generally enjoy living out in the country, however, we do live 25 minutes from the nearest town and, more importantly, major grocery store. So, I have to plan carefully whenever I decide to coerce Yes! Chef! into cooking something for me. My youngest son works at Safeway in Placerville, so when I drop him off for work and I have planned appropriately, I can pick up what I need. I can’t just run into town every day because it is too expensive gas-wise and too time consuming.
What does this have to do with Chicken Gyros, I hear someone ask. Well, I think I might have mentioned in some earlier blog posts that I have been enjoying taking a Photography for Food Bloggers course over at PPSOP.com taught by Ron Goldman and Lara Ferroni. (Quite the high-powered duo, I know, right?) And this blog is my final assignment. I must say that I’m a little apprehensive about doing this post, but I will plow ahead anyway.
