  1. This is not souvlaki. Souvlaki is the Greek flat bread that you Americans call pita bread. Usually it’s used to wrap gyros…

  2. Greek food is my JAM! And souvlaki is what my husband always orders when we go out to a Greek restaurant- can’t wait to try this with him. 🙂 Thank you so very much for stopping by Snickerdoodle Sunday!
