Why do you strain yogurt?

That's why I'm wondering which route to go. Some people say straining it is the only way, I guess so it isn't watery. These same people shred the cucumber, sprinkle it with salt and squeeze the water from it as well. Other people just throw it all together.

Thanks pds! I think I'll strain too. Maybe I'll grate some cukes and dice some too, it'll be good all chunky.

Well is it just Dina, tg and I for greek this weekend?

I'm going to do some grocery store research and shopping tomorrow. Not sure about the leg of lamb, will see if they have it at Costco first. We have a friend coming up to visit this weekend so I'm not sure if I'll make this on Sat or Sun...not really sure when he's coming or if he'll be up for greek.

Greek? Turkish? Spanish?

My Jessica's Biscuit order just came with The Slow Mediterranean Kitchen by Paula Wolfert

and The Cuisines of Spain


Now, I'm about what I'll be making. Whatever it is, hopefully it'll be good.

sorry, guys, I just don't like lamb or feta. Maybe I could make that Greek lasagna, pastitsio. And buy some baklava (right now all the work involved sounds onerous).

I'll be making chicken souvlaki too, mudbug. It is marinated in lemon and some other stuff then put on skewers and out on the grill.

Bought a 4lb leg of lamb today. $7/lb!!! at the grocery store and the only one they had was 6lbs=$45! Luckily they had it at Costco for half the price or I wouldn't be making any lamb this weekend! Do you guys know how to butterfly it?!
