    Wife was inspired by a cooking show in Greece this morning. She watched it over and over. The next thing I knew we were driving 62 miles to the nearest Seafood Store.

    The finished plate is Shrimp Santorini with Greek Ratatouille on the side.

    Also grilled scallops and squid.

    All washed down with a couple shots of Ouzo.

    And of course a few Spaten Lagers.
